Our team is proud to have donated 3000 gloves and 660 level-2 and level-3 masks to the Oregon Emergency Command Center. Our practice has joined many other Southern Oregon dental practices in making sure that our personal protective equipment (PPE)  goes where it is most needed during this pandemic. We are so thankful for the folks on the front lines at hospitals and clinics.

Please note that we are still available for true dental emergencies and have reserved a small portion of our PPE to treat our established patients. If you have a problem, please contact Dr. White on our emergency line directly at 541-631-8885. Check back for updates! And don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. 

Wishing you and your family good health,

Dr. Brandon White + team

Oregon Governor Kate Brown has issued an executive order mandating that all elective and non-urgent care in dental practices be postponed. This has been done in an effort to conserve and redirect personal protective equipment to better support Oregon hospitals. White Dental Studio is now currently closed until June 15th, 2020 following the recommendations set forth by Governor Kate Brown. Read her executive order here.

We are still available for true dental emergencies and established patients are welcome to contact Dr. White directly at 541-631-8885. Please check back for updates! And don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

 

We wish you good health,

The health and safety of our patients is extremely important to us. This is why we have always maintained high standards of cleanliness in our practice and follow guidelines for Universal (Standard) Precautions. Due to growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus, we are exceeding our already vigilant practices and procedures to keep you safe. We want White Dental Studio to be a safe environment.

Changes we are making this week:

  • Patients are required to wash their hands upon arrival and encouraged to do so again at departure.
  • Each operatory will have Peroxyl mouthwash available for patients to use prior to and after visits. This mouthwash has shown promise at reducing oral bacteria and viruses and it is a hydrogen peroxide-based oral rinse.
  • Patients may choose to stay in their car instead of sitting in our waiting area. If this interests you, please send us a text message upon arrival to 541-631-8885.
  • We are removing reading materials and toys from the waiting area, and will temporarily close our home care supply display.

As has always been the case in our practice, if you feel under the weather or believe you have been exposed to transmissible disease, please stay home. We feel that an abundance of caution is appropriate in an effort to allow us to remain available to all of our patients to provide dental care. Dental and periodontal treatment remains important in reducing the risks of pain, fractures, abscesses, and other dental problems which may lead to further burdens on an already stressed healthcare system.

Let’s stay healthy,

Brandon White, DDS + White Dental Studio team
