Dear MKY patients and families,
As you are aware, there has been a great deal of attention in the news regarding the coronavirus, a flu-like disease that was originally identified in December. The virus has spread from China throughout the world, and is currently being monitored daily by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the NJ Department of Health and local management centers to determine potential spread in our area.
Currently we are taking numerous increased precautions in our office, many advised by the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists, to care for all patients during this health crisis.
In an effort to further protect our patients and staff, we ask that you all are mindful of the following precautions:
- If you are sick, please stay home. Please call to cancel your appointment and we will surely reschedule when you are feeling better.
- If you are sick and have an emergency – please call us so we can help you manage the situation at home or we will help to figure out an alternative solution.
- Please let us know if you have any special circumstances that we should be aware of, such as recent travel abroad to areas afflicted by the virus.
We will continue to monitor the situation daily and properly manage the care of our patients and staff throughout this crisis to the very best of our ability.
Thank you for your trust in this area. We look forward to many happy smiles in the future!
Drs. Morrone, Kaye and Yucha
