Update on COVID-19

Dentist in Cambridge

According to the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS), official state guidelines and the American Dental Association (ADA), it is recommended that we close our office for routine and non-urgent dental treatment until Phase II of Governor Baker’s 4 Phase reopening plan can begin.  

Our anticipated timeline for treatment will be as follows:

Now – Mid June Emergency-only care

Mid June – Late July: Reopening for all dentistry with high levels of PPE

Late July and on: Business as usual/“New Normal”

Important: These dates are running in line with official state guidelines, so when they say that Phase II can begin, we will be there for you. 

Where to get updates?

  • Follow Governor Baker’s announcements of the reopening of Boston businesses
  • On our social media pages:
    • Facebook: @sweetspotdental
    • IG: @hellosweetspotdental
  • Via email updates

Our team is eager to get back to work and care for each and every one of our amazing patients.  So trust us when we say we will let you know ASAP when we can begin caring for you and what our “new normal” looks like.  Once we have a definitive date set, we can begin reaching out to all of you who are waiting for treatment.

 

What we are doing during this time:

  • Keeping the lines of communication open
    • Updates via email and text from our office
    • Teledentistry appointments with Dr. Greenberg
    • Dedicated emergency phone line/email
  • Increased infection control protocol
    • In addition to our rigorous infection control protocol (please see our website for details), we are disinfecting all touch points in the office (door knobs, clipboards, etc) between patients.
    • We have a one patient in and one patient out policy to limit the chance of cross-contamination. This also means that we ask you to not bring anyone with you to your dental visit at this time.
    • We will do COVID-19 screenings prior to scheduling the appointment as well as chairside.
