AN OPEN LETTER FROM DR. PAUL SZMANDA

PRESIDENT AND CEO OF SZMANDA DENTAL CENTER, SC

TO OUR PATIENTS AND COMMUNITY

Greetings Everyone!

On May 4, 2020, Szmanda Dental Center began a phased, measured and clinically led process to resume non-emergency services and procedures in addition to continuing to provide urgent care and emergency services. At all times, we have met and exceeded federal and state guidelines and guidance provided by agencies such as the CDC, OSHA and DHHS, as well as guidance provided by industry organizations such as the American Dental Association® and the Wisconsin Dental Association®, to ensure the highest levels of safety and protection for our patients, our team and our community in general. Since reopening, we have had no known transmission of COVID-19 (or any other infectious disease) and have been commended by many for our precautions.

The dental industry in general and our offices in particular have a great deal of historical and evolving expertise in infectious disease prevention. We have the most advanced controls available and can assure you that we are doing everything we can on a continual basis to minimize the exposure risks for patients and caregivers alike. Among the steps we have taken are:

Here is what a few of our patients are saying about our COVID-19 response:
