The dental office of Dr. Mary Peebles-Turner will follow the American Dental Association (ADA) recommendation to postpone treatment of elective dental procedures during the Corona Virus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are available for emergency dental care and ask you to call the office in the event of a dental emergency.
As always, we care about your health and day in and day out we exercise best management practices to stop the spread of viruses and bacteria between patients and staff members alike.
All surfaces in our clinic are hard, scrub-able surfaces. We use plastic barriers where possible and all counters and work surfaces are treated with hospital grade surface disinfectants between patients.
While the Coronavirus is easy to spread without precautions, it is easy to prevent with some basic precautions.
- Wash your hands frequently and spend at least 20 seconds scrubbing soap onto your skin.
- Cough into your elbow instead of your hand.
- Avoid crowds and avoid touching public surfaces.
- Don’t touch your face, eyes or mouth. If you do, wash your hands again.
This virus can live for hours on surfaces, but it is NOT thought to live longer than a day. Most of us will not get sick even if we do come in contact with the CoronaVirus. Most of those who get sick will recover (98%).
If you are over 65-70, have compromised lungs or a compromised immune system, you are well advised to follow these guidelines strictly!
Keep calm, don’t panic, and use good common sense! (and good hygiene).

We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Be safe and be well,
Dr. Mary and Staff
