Hi Everyone,

Well, we had hoped to be able to begin seeing you all on Monday, May 18th however, it is beginning to look like our date to reopen our practice will be closer to Monday, June 1st. It’s just going to take a little longer before we get to see your smiling faces.

I’d like to touch base with you about dental emergency treatment. We have seen quite a few patients requiring emergency care over the last six weeks and the one thing that came to mind after each visit was that if only I had had the the opportunity to see these particular issues sooner the remedy could have been more simple. We’ve all heard the old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. It is so true of dental care.

Should you find yourself with a dental issue whether it be a soreness, an ache, a mild swelling or looseness, please call me. That way we can make a decision together as to what the best course of action might be and hopefully catch whatever it is early.

Also, to our many patients in the midst of appliance therapy for sleep apnea, should you have any concerns about the progress of your therapy or any issue with the condition, fit, or comfort of your appliance, please conatct me. Let’s address any issue before it becomes more complex.

We look forward to seeing you again soon and are happy to answer any questions that you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you safe while at our practice. Feel free to call our office at 518-218-0713 or visit our facebook page to see recent updates.

Until we see you next time, stay well, practice excellent self-care, and call me if you need me.

Dr. Maestro, Nancy, Cherie, Kara, and Erin
