Dental and Orthodontic Emergencies during COVID-19
Dear patient and families,
In an effort to keep you informed of the measures we are taking we ask that you please read the following:
Due to the rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus and following the mandate of Florida’s governor to close all medical and dental offices except for emergencies, our office is currently closed. Dr. Lastra will be available for orthodontic emergencies only (serious facial trauma and large loose appliances that do not allow you to close your mouth only) by calling (305) 854-3795. If you are currently wearing rubber bands, please switch to nighttime. If you are wearing aligners, stay on your last aligner and wear nighttime only but do NOT discontinue wear. Please understand that the best way to slow down the spread of this virus is by everyone staying home in quarantine.
We hope to see you all soon and wish that you stay safe and well. Brush, floss, wear your rubber bands and aligners, and keep smiling!
Dr. Idalia Lastra
