Coronavirus Update

To our valued patients,

Per recommendation of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH), and Governor Charlie Baker, our office will remain closed until further notice.  We are unsure as to when we can resume seeing regular appointments, but are carefully awaiting any new recommendations and mandates for dental providers.  

Our family has always been dedicated to providing you with the safest environment possible for your dental care.  We have always adhered to all CDC & OSHA mandated universal precautions and requirements pertaining to infection control, bloodborne pathogens, as well as aerosol and droplet transmission. We are currently making sure all measures are being taken for you to return to our office safely.  This includes, but is not limited to, securing all Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required to protect both you and us.  The national shortage of PPE is the main reason we cannot see patients regularly at this time.

If you have an upcoming appointment, please be on the look out for a call/email/text from us.  We are not rescheduling routine care at this time, but will contact you to reschedule as soon as we have more information.

As always, we remain committed to providing high quality dental care.  Please call our office at 508-746-9503 if you are having a TRUE dental emergency.  We are checking the messages daily and will get back to you as soon as possible.

Dental Emergencies include:

  • Bleeding that will not stop
  • Swelling in or around the mouth
  • Toothache
  • Tooth that has been knocked out
  • Abnormal growth/change in tissue

We hope everyone is holding up okay and staying safe, healthy, and informed. We will continue to provide updates as they become available to us. We miss all of you and look forward to resuming normal care once it is safe to do so!

Very best,

Drs. Richard & Emily Karr
