To our patients,
As you know your care and safety and the safety of our team is our top priority.
Recommendations to dental offices are changing rapidly regarding shelter in place, social distancing and essential dental treatment. We are working hard to remain compliant with the recommendation by the American Dental Association, California Dental Association and our Governor that California dentists suspend all care other than essential and emergency treatment.
If you have any questions regarding your dental care or have urgent concerns, please call us or send a direct message through our website; we are here for you and will be seeing emergency patients.
Our phones will be answered during our normal business hours and, as always, we can be reached outside of the business hours for any emergency calls.
We are looking forward to returning to patient care and the opportunity to once again visit with our dental family of patients…we miss you all!
Thank you for being our patients!
Dr. Sharon Mateja and Team, Jennifer, Deanna, Sandra & Erika
