April 3, 2020
As we write this email we are thinking of you and your loved ones during this ever-changing situation with COVID-19. We want to send an update to our previous email regarding the temporary closure of our office.
The American Dental Association (ADA) and the Oklahoma Dental Association (ODA) have now recommended dentists keep their offices closed to all but urgent and emergency procedures until at least April 30th. Governor Stitt also extended the Executive Order stating “Oklahomans and medical providers shall postpone all elective surgeries, minor medical procedures, and non-emergency dental procedures until April 30, 2020”.
The rate of new COVID-19 cases is on the rise, and this new recommendation is aligned with the latest recommendation from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). While we are eager to resume providing routine dental care, hygiene recall, periodontal maintenance, etc.; we must continue to prioritize the safety and health of our patients, our employees, the community at large, and our families.
If you are having an oral health issue, we are still here for you! Please call our office so that we can help you determine whether you need to be seen immediately or if you are experiencing a non-urgent issue that can be postponed to a later date.
We hope to be back in the office for routine dental appointments and cleanings on May 4th, however, we will continue to follow the recommendations put forth by the ADA and the CDC.
If you have an appointment scheduled between now and April 30th, it is not necessary to reach out to us to reschedule at this time. Our office will contact you to reschedule when we have more information and a set date to safely return to caring for our patients. If you are currently in Invisalign treatment or have a temporary crown, we will specifically reach out to you in the next couple of days to check on you.
We truly care about you, your health and your safety during this unprecedented time. With the “shelter in place” guidelines, we ask that you do just that….stay home. Be diligent in doing your part to “flatten the curve.”

Wishing you good health! Drs. Marti Levinson and Carla Sullivan
