Dear GSO Patient,
We want to assure you that the health and well-being of our patients, residents, faculty, and staff is our utmost priority. We are closely monitoring all communications from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Georgia Department of Health regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are being proactive in minimizing the risk of the COVID-19 to ensure a safe clinical environment for our GSO family.
Therefore, our clinics will be closed until government officials deem that is safe to re-open and provide orthodontic care to the Atlanta community. We will reach out to you directly to reschedule your appointments once our clinics are open again. In the meantime we are available by phone to answer any questions or concerns you may have, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm.
We are now restricting treatment to emergency care only. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are experiencing an orthodontic emergency during normal business hours, please do not come in without first calling us at 770-351-7737, Option 2. If after hours, please press Option 9 to be connected to our doctor on call. We also encourage you to visit our Emergency Care page to learn more about what is considered an orthodontic emergency.
We are keeping apprised of the recommendations submitted by the national, state, and local public health departments daily and will continue to provide our patients with relevant updated information. Should you have any questions, please call us at 770-351-7737, option 2.
We strongly encourage patients to follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s advice on protecting yourself and others: Wash your hands frequently with soap and/or alcohol-based sanitizers; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cover your mouth or nose when you sneeze or cough; and maintain distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
We regret that we must restrict our patient care this way. We are serving our patients in the safest manner possible by following the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under these difficult circumstances. In doing this, we will safeguard the health and safety of our patients, residents, faculty, staff, and the whole community. We hope you understand, and we thank you for your cooperation.
