IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 3/30/2020
Bastien Dental is closely monitoring the rapidly changing developments involving Coronavirus. If you are a patient, please note the following:
DUE TO ACTIVE STAFF AND PATIENT COVID-19 SICKNESS, AND STAFF EXPOSURE TO THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS, WE ARE FORCED TO CLOSE AND QUARANTINE COMPLETELY UNTIL THURSDAY, 4/2/20. WE WILL BE CHECKING MESSAGES AND ATTEMPTING TO MANAGE TO DENTAL EMERGENCIES BY PHONE. IN THE EVENT OF EMERGENCY, PLEASE CALL DR DAVID BASTIEN AT 781-424-9885. SORRY WE CANNOT BE THERE FOR YOU TEMPORARILY, AND THANKS FOR THE UNDERSTANDING.
STARTING 4/2/20, we are once again open, for emergency dentistry only. All scheduled cleanings and non-ermergency dental procedures are cancelled. The safety of the community and staff are of the utmost importance, and only pain and/or active oral infections will be treated.
If you are an emergency patient who has traveled to a country with a CDC Level 3 Travel Notice, we ask that you stay isolated or seek treatment at a hospital emergency room. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advise that travelers returning from these countries should self-isolate for 14 days to ensure they have not contracted the virus.
Patients with the flu, or flu-like symptoms should not come to the office and should reschedule their appointments to a later date. This includes things as simple as a cough or fever.
Bastien Dental is trying to do our part in keeping our community safe, while balancing the dental needs of our patients. The CDC says that the 40-70% of the U.S. population is likely to get the coronavirus. Despite this inevitability, if we limit our contact with others, especially in an environment like a dental office, we will slow the spread of this disease, which in turn will allow our health system to handle the load of sick people. If we are all sick at the same time, we may not be able to find critical medical care. Thanks for your patience, cooperation, and understanding.
Since 1968, Bastien Dental has served families throughout the South Shore area with comprehensive dental care featuring a compassionate touch. Dr. David Bastien, Dr. Gill Bastien, and our team will help you take control of your dental health, and teach you the best ways to improve and maintain your healthy smile.
Our goal is to help you understand the importance of your teeth and mouth, their intimate connection to your overall health, and how to address your complete oral health needs. We believe that dental health is a gateway to complete wellness, and a beautiful smile is a gateway to self-belief.
To learn more about the services we provide or to schedule an appointment, please contact our Marshfield dental office. We look forward to welcoming you into our dental family.
