Covid-19 UPDATE: Services Resume

A Special Note About the COVID-19 Virus and the Resumption of Elective Services

At this time, we are pleased to announce that CTMAX will begin to resume normal services starting on May 20th. At the same time, all of our patients should rest assured that we continue to listen carefully to the recommendations put forward by the CDC, the Connecticut Department of Public Health, and all local authorities regarding the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

For the past several weeks, we have successfully run an emergency oral surgery clinic to service those patients with only emergencies. Our clinic was limited to a single office location and targeted patients who might otherwise be forced to seek emergent oral surgical needs through the hospital emergency rooms. We would like to recognize and thank Dr. Brett Weyman and our dedicated staff that made this possible through the very peak of Connecticut’s Phase I COVID-19 curve. By using specific protocols that aligned with the CDC’s recommendations for safety, CTMAX successfully ensured the health and wellbeing of all patients needing treatment during this period while preserving the safety of our own team.

Our experience over this period has been invaluable and is assisting us as we plan for reopening our offices to elective services. We have always employed the highest level of patient protection and sanitization methods to preserve a surgically aseptic environment. Similarly, our doctors and staff are accustomed to operating in a hypersensitive environment. In years past we have confronted and practiced in the face of infamous epidemics, including, Hep A, B & C, HIV/AIDS, SARS, H1N1, Ebola (EBV) and others. Therefore, we understand how to mitigate the risks of treatment for both the patient and the doctor. We will use the additional experience of what we have learned recently as well as over decades of practice to keep you and your family safe.

We believe that it is important for you to know what we are doing to ensure your safety as well as educate you as to what you should expect at your next appointment. We have, therefore, dedicated a section of our website to assist you in being prepared with the hope that we will allay many of your fears. In many ways, we are now practicing in a new age of healthcare.

Covid-19 UPDATE

A Special Note About the COVID-19 Virus

CTMAX has been listening carefully to the recommendations put forward by the CDC, the Connecticut Department of Public Health and all local authorities regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Therefore, we have now elected to currently limit appointments to only those experiencing an urgent need. All elective procedures and consultations will be appointed or reappointed beginning at the end of day on Wednesday, March 18th to a time beginning or following April 6th.

In addition, we will be limiting patient visits to our Simsbury Office location until the current recommended lockdown has passed. Our Simsbury location is isolated from other offices and is easily maintained at the highest level for decontamination and recommended CDC guidelines under the current virus outbreak. While we realize this might present a burden to those coming from a more distant location, we believe this will assist in ensuring the safety of the patient, doctors and our staff. During this period our hours will also change and be limited to appointments between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Appointments will be scheduled an hour a part to avoid overlap from one individual to another and limit waiting room times.

We would like to say that this message is our last regarding this situation and that we will resume normal operations on April 6th, however, we are aware that we will have to react to the facts on the ground and recommendations provided to us by our government health agencies. We wish everyone safety and good health in these difficult times. We believe that our people, communities and country will successfully prevail against this invisible enemy that we face.

Do You Know Who Your Oral Surgeon Is?

It would not be the first time that a down economy has produced tradesmen and specialists out of thin air that profess to have an expertise in just about everything from building homes to laying new tile in your bathroom. In hard times, everyone is looking to putting food on the table and jobs are often scarce for what was previously an individual’s selected profession. Unfortunately, the dental profession is no different. As discretionary funds are redistributed by patients to other more critical life-sustaining items, the professional in both dentistry and medicine may begin looking to taking on treatments that he or she may otherwise not have considered doing or at the very least would have sent to a specialist. In its worst form this practice can result in a fraudulent misrepresentation of the professional’s education, ability and even licensure as it relates to what they are providing for the patient.
