Letter From Dr. Starks and Dr. Ip
March 19, 2020
The Washington State Department of Health and the American Dental Association have offered guidance and recommendations to health care providers during the coronavirus pandemic. They have advised that only essential dental procedures be performed to minimize potential transmission of COVID-19, and to help conserve personal protective gear for healthcare providers who are caring for those with COVID-19.
Because of these recommendations, we will be operating with a reduced staff. Our plan is to be open and available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in order to provide the essential dental needs of our patients. This includes urgent dental problems, pain, and infections. For now, Dr. Starks and Dr. Ip have made the decision not to schedule routine check-ups or do non-emergency procedures until next month.
This decision was not made lightly, however, it is necessary in order to protect our patients and staff. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this together.
If this notice affects your upcoming appointment, someone will be in contact with you to reschedule. If you have any questions or think you have a dental emergency, please call our office 206-623-7783.
Dr. Starks, Dr. Ip, and the staff at North Downtown Seattle Dental would like to thank you for your understanding as we seek to navigate through this crisis. Our sincerest wishes to you and your families for health and wellness.
Dr. John Starks | Dr. Jonathan Ip
