Emergency Appointments Only

We here at the Sharp Smile Center are committed to providing an excellent customer experience, in a safe, comfortable environment. This is not possible currently, as we are unable to obtain “no touch” thermometers and Virus testing kits. Therefore, we have suspended care for elective procedures until March 30th, 2020. If you are experiencing dental pain and require immediate attention, Dr. “C” is on call during this time. If you do visit the office, she will be exercising prudent guidelines to minimize exposure and spread of disease.

COVID-19 Closure (3/16 - 3/30)

We as a nation we are at a critical juncture regarding the Coronavirus. All citizens of this great country have a moral and ethical duty to show that our system of governance works and thrives not in the face of, but because we are free! We must make difficult sacrifices and choices not because our government surveils and forces us, but because we choose to do what is right, even if it causes us short term pain.

In an effort to prevent mass exposure, the following recommendations have been proposed by the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and Michigan Governor Whitmer:

ADA Recommends Dentists Nationwide Postpone Elective Procedures

The ADA News (3/16, Burger) reports that in response to the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, the American Dental Association recommends that dentists across the country postpone elective procedures. “The American Dental Association recognizes the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances dentists and all health care professionals face related to growing concern about COVID-19,” according to the March 16 statement from ADA President Chad P. Gehani. “The ADA is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of the public and the dental team. In order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the ADA recommends dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.”

MDA Guidance on COVID-19

The Michigan Dental Association is strongly recommending that Michigan dentists close their offices beginning March 17 for at least two weeks to patients seeking preventive and elective care, and limit treatment to necessary treatment and patients requiring emergency care.

Michigan Situation Gov.

Gretchen Whitmer on March 16 signed Executive Order 2020-11, to prohibit all events over 50 people or assemblages in shared indoor spaces over 50 people beginning Tuesday, March 17 at 9 a.m. The new restrictions will remain in place, like the school closure restrictions, until April 5, 2020, at 5 p.m. This order provides an exception from its prohibition on assemblages for health care facilities, workplaces not open to the public, the state Legislature, mass transit, the purchase of groceries or consumer goods, and the performance of agricultural or construction work.

Earlier in the day, Gov. Whitmer signed an executive order to temporarily close theaters, bars, and casinos, limiting restaurants to carry-out and delivery orders. The executive order applies to restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, bars, taverns, brewpubs, distilleries, clubs, movie theaters, indoor and outdoor performance venues, gymnasiums, fitness centers, recreation centers, indoor sports facilities, indoor exercise facilities, exercise studios, spas, and casinos.

Gov. Whitmer's office said the order will not restrict a place of business from offering food and beverage using delivering service, window service, walk-up service, drive-through service, or drive-up service.

Gov. Whitmer's office said the order does not apply to these locations: office buildings, grocery stores, markets, food pantries, pharmacies, drug stores, and providers of medical equipment and supplies, health care facilities, residential care facilities, congregate care facilities, and juvenile justice facilities, warehouse and distribution centers, and industrial and manufacturing facilities.

Earlier this month, Gov. Whitmer declared a state of emergency due to the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. There are 54 confirmed cases thus far, and the number is expected to rise. On March 11 the Governor’s Office released Interim Recommendations for COVID-19 Community Mitigation Strategies. Please click here to read this informative document. The recommendations include suggested personal hygiene measures, information for individuals and families, recommendations for individuals at greatest risk, recommendations for educational institutions, child and adult care facilities, workplaces and other organizations.
