As we continuously monitor the COVID-19 outbreak in New Jersey and the Tri-State area, and based on the recommendations from the surgeon general, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) we’ve made the difficult decision starting today to close to any elective and non-emergent cases at Bergen Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (BOMS).
As is always the case, BOMS sees itself as a leader in the medical/dental community and believes its role and responsibility at this time is to prioritize the health and well-being of our patients, doctors and staff, as well as the larger community. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution during these turbulent times. As health care professionals, we see it as our duty to take steps in helping to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and to do so, we see it as necessary to follow sound scientific, public health advice, help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus.
There have been no staff members or doctors that have displayed any symptoms for COVID-19, nor any member of the families of staff members or doctors. In addition, no patients seen in our offices has reported as being sick.
As always, if you are experiencing something that needs immediate attention, please call our office and we will do our best to accommodate accordingly.
Our No. 1 priority is our patients’ health and well-being, and this decision to close indefinitely is solely based on their best interests. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office.
