COVID-19 Update: Essential vs. Non-Essential Dental Procedures

As of Monday, March 23, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer instituted Executive Order to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan through a “stay home, stay safe” order. The intention of the order is to:

  • To prevent the state’s health care system from being overwhelmed
  • To allow time for the production of critical test kits, ventilators, and personal protective equipment
  • To avoid needless deaths

For this reason, it is all of our responsibility to remain at home to the maximum extent feasible. This order takes effect on March 24, 2020, and at this time will continue through April 13, 2020. This could be subject to change based on new developments. 

To comply, the Michigan Dental Association has recommended our dental practice suspend all elective, non-essential dental care. In other words, we will be offering our services for emergencies only. For more information on what constitutes essential vs. non-essential, click here.

If you require emergency assistance, please contact us at (734) 242-4334. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
