The Pediatric Dental Center of Frederick and Smile Frederick Orthodontics.
We would like to inform our patients that as of 5pm March 17, 2020. We will be temporarily closing both The Pediatric Dental Center of Frederick and Smile Frederick Orthodontics offices.
This decision is based on advice from the Maryland State Dental Association below:
In light of the rapidly growing developments regarding official responses to the coronavirus (COVID-19), The Maryland State Dental Association mandates all dental practices suspend all non-essential and non-urgent dental care for an additional 30 days following the initial 3 week period in March. This recommendation reflects continuing concern for the safety, health and wellbeing of patients and staff. The fluid activities at the state and federal levels suggest the possibility that more stringent and mandated restrictions are possible. We will continue to closely monitor the situation, provide updates and statements as the situation evolves’.
We expect to re-open on tentatively Friday May 1st. If you have a scheduled appointment between Wednesday March 18th and Friday April 30th, a member of our team will be contacting you in due course to reschedule this appointment.
If you had an emergency appointment scheduled after March 17th to see Dr Mansman, you will be seen at your scheduled appointment time.
We will be posting updates to our Facebook pages.
Any dental emergencies during this time should call Dr. Mansman. There will be staff available to answer your call when you call the office during normal business hours and a recording directing you to call Dr. Mansman directly after hours. Many situations that arise can be handled over the phone thereby saving room in our Emergency Departments during this trying time.
We appreciate your co-operation and understanding during this difficult time and wish you and your families well.
Dr. Robert Mansman
