May 19, 2020
We hope this letter finds you in good health and good spirits. Our thoughts are with all of those who may have suffered during these past few weeks. As our nation and community starts to heal from the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize many businesses in our community will be opening their doors again. As your health advocate and ally, we want to take a moment to share a few updates with you.
This past month, we have remained open as an essential business for urgent care and dental emergencies but limited our treatment options for regular cleanings and dental care. We did this to ensure that every physician and nurse had the need surplus of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to treat COVID-19 patients.
It has been an honor to support our fellow healthcare workers who were on the front line of this battle in this small way. As things have no begun to level out, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is in high supply in our area and we are able to begin full services and treatments for our patients without diminishing any equipment or supplies needed for the continued treatment of COVID-19.
Your safety and health have always been our greatest priority. Universal precautions have been expanded with added measures to continue to provide a thoroughly clean environment. Our team is proud to follow all ADA, CDC, and other reputable guidelines in our practice, making our business clean and safe our patients. allows us to provide essential dentistry that will prevent dental decay, sensitivity, or a need for more complicated treatment.
We know that dental health is essential to protecting your overall health. So, we look forward to the opportunity to resume our regular treatments for you and the community of Olympia. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the additional measures taken to make your visit safe and enjoyable. We are grateful for your continued trust and support in us—your dental health providers, fellow community members and friends.
See you soon,
Dr. Garret Yamaguchi and Dr. Gordon Yamaguchi and Team
