A Letter From Dr. Lovelace Gipson, Dr. Brent Johnson,
Dr. Tandra Atkins and Dr. Adrienne Payne
To our family of patients…and their families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers,
I hope this message finds you well amid the current climate of uncertainty we are all facing. Needless to say, we are all being affected in unprecedented ways by the events surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. On local, state, national, and international levels, we are all in uncharted territory. Our intention in this message to you is to inform you of the many steps we are now taking at Firestone Dental Group, P.L.L.C. to serve you best, and to ensure optimal levels of health and safety for you as we all navigate this situation together. Please read ALL of this and pardon the length…it’s more important for us to be thorough, than brief!
Since the news and developments regarding COVID-19 are changing very rapidly, this is an admittedly imperfect message that can and will be updated as often as necessary to keep you, our valued patients, up to date. Ultimately, please know that we are committed to serving you at the highest levels possible, through any circumstances. We are also fully committed to minimizing risks to you, our excellent dental team members, and ourselves, as well as all our families and surrounding circles.
AS YOU ARE AWARE, THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION HAS ISSUED WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS TO HEALTH-CARE PROVIDERS WORLDWIDE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS.
WE ARE TAKING EVERY PRECAUTION NECESSARY TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE OF ANY VIRUS WITHIN OUR OFFICE, AND WE ASK THAT YOU HELP US BY PARTICIPATING IN THESE PRECAUTIONS.
Until otherwise stated, we are currently OPEN for business, with our standard operating hours. However, we will be limiting our children’s program interaction with the community. Transportation will be limited to those who absolutely need assistance to access medically necessary care. We will gladly reschedule all of our oral health prevention community programs when the Center for Disease Control indicates it is safe to do so. We are also observing the ADA recommendation of reducing non-essential services. Any potential adjustments of hours we are open will be communicated as necessary and without delay. Existing patients and new patients are welcome, as long as they are free of any symptoms of illness.
If you have ANY questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us via the following methods:
Phone: 901 525-3800
Email: Dcoleman@Firestonedentalgroup.com or info@Firestonedentalgroup.com
When facing these challenging and uncertain times, we can overcome virtually anything when we all work together. We offer our prayers and warmest thoughts and wishes to you and your families and friends. We will emerge from this stronger, wiser and better prepared for the next challenges that come our way!
All our best,
Dr. L.P. Gipson, Dr. Brent Johnson, Dr. Tandra Atkins and Dr. Adrienne Payne
and the team of Firestone Dental Group, P.L.L.C.
