Dear Patients:

This week, Governor Charlie Baker announced his administration's four-phase approach to reopening Massachusetts. In preparation for this phased reopening, the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) Executive Committee and Board of Trustees met to discuss its COVID-19 guidance for dentists practicing in the Commonwealth. Based on recommendations from the state's Reopening Advisory Board, the MDS will be participating in a work-group convened by the Administration to inform guidance applicable to dental practices and other non-hospital providers.

Taking into consideration the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Dental Association (ADA), Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health (DPH), and the Baker Administration, the MDS recommends that at the start of Phase 1---the "Start" phase---dentists may treat emergent and likely to become emergent cases. The state will be establishing criteria that providers must meet in order to resume such services in Phase 1. Dentists that satisfy this criteria may begin offering services for emergent-or at risk of becoming emergent--cases based on the providers clinical judgement.

The MDS will continue to closely monitor the CDC, ADA, state DPH and Gov. Baker's guidelines as we offer additional guidance and resources. The Governor and the State Dental Society have not given us an official re-open date. We will post an update once we are able to return.

We acknowledge that this continues to affect and inconvenience everybody, but we ask that you continue to be patient and understanding during this time.

If you have an emergency, please leave a message on the office phone 978-779-6223 and one of the doctors will return your call.

Thank you. Stay safe and healthy.
Dr. Marian, Dr. Bryant and staff
