COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Families,

In an effort to practice social distancing, we have suspended routine dental visits starting March 13, 2020.

However, we are here for you and OUR DOCTORS AND STAFF ARE HERE FOR ANY OF OUR PATIENTS THAT MAY REQUIRE EMERGENCY CARE.

Our doctors will be available by telephone, through email, and we are also offering Telemedicine Virtual Appointments as needed.

The Pediatric Dental Center teamed up with Kids Doctor on Call (Kids DOC), a pediatric telemedicine platform that connects patients to their pediatricians (and your pediatric dentists at the Pediatric Dental Center) via live video call. This brings you an added option for connecting with us from your home.

In light of the current COVID- 19 outbreak we feel that video consults are more important than ever. As always we want to provide the best care to your family. In fact, sometimes the best thing we can do for our neighbors is to limit exposure and get as much advise as possible from home.

Below is the direct link to sign-up for our new Telemedicine platform.

KidsDOC Telemedicine Sign-Up

Once you are signed up, please email us at office@drmichelledds.com to schedule a virtual exam.

At the time of the visit make sure you are logged in on your computer at http://www.callkidsdoc.com or  download the app from the Apple App store by searching Kids Doctors on Call and log-in on your Apple device.

We wish our families health and patience during this time. We encourage families to stay calm, practice social distancing, wash your hands often, and reassure children who worry that a they are very safe and these are precautionary measures only.

This is for the safety of your family, your children, and our community,

Michelle Kelman DDS

Please note: We know peace of mind in a timely manner is invaluable and that is why we believe live video conference is a needed complement to the future of pediatric care. KidsDOC calls are free to you, but these visits will be billed to your insurance carrier and may incur a small co-pay.

WELCOME TO PEDIATRIC DENTAL CENTER!
