In Response to the Pandemic
Digiorno Dental Fitness will be closed March 16-30, 2020
As we are sure many of you know, we are continuing to manage through the impact of COVID-19. Fortunately, California is currently less impacted than other areas.
We are not surprised to be receiving calls from patients wanting to inquire about or to postpone their dental treatment to a later date due to this virus. The COVID-19 Pandemic has evolved significantly over this past weekend and the California Dental Association has strongly advised dental offices to close for a period of 2-3 weeks. We have made the very difficult decision to close Digiorno Dental Fitness immediately for a period of two weeks, March 16-30, 2020. It would be unwise and irresponsible for us to do anything outside of the guidelines that have been put forth. We are closing our offices in the best interests of our patients, our team members, our families and our community.
Call Us with Questions
If you have an appointment during this closure, a team member will be reaching out to you if they haven’t already. If you have questions or a dental emergency, please feel free to call our office and a team member will be available by phone throughout the weeks ahead. Our Folsom office will be available for emergencies during this period of closure. (916) 817-6453
What You Can Do
Your dental health is important to us. Please work on keeping your immune system healthy. Take your vitamins, eat healthy and at home if possible, which will ensure less exposure to public places. It is important to us that all our patients get any active infection taken care of. This includes treatment for gum disease, cavities and infected teeth in need of root canal treatment. It is very hard for a virus to survive if a person is healthy. Active infection will reduce a person’s immunity.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
