Please call us if you have an influenza-like illness:
If you are concerned you have influenza-like illness including cough, fever, sore throat, or shortness of breath, please call your primary care office. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911.
Consider video/telephone visits
We can arrange a scheduled in-person consult or post-operative visit to a telephone visit. For a telephone visit, Dr. Yu will call you on your phone. Face timing will be available if you have an Apple iPhone or iPad. If you and Dr. Yu determine that an in-person visit is needed, we will change the visit to in-person.
Consider delaying non-urgent in-person visits at this time
MY DENTAL PLACE will not provide at this time routine preventive care service. We suggest you delay the visit until the COVID-19 virus risk is lower. We have been calling patients who have existing appointments to reschedule. If you would like to reschedule an upcoming visit, please call us at (650)938-6937 or use mydentalplace.net.
What is essential or life-threatening care as it relates to dental emergencies
Some dental infections, if left untreated, can lead to life-threatening conditions. We will see you if you have a condition needing emergency dental care. Dental emergencies will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine the appropriate and necessary timing of in-person treatment. If you are in pain please call us and we will determine if we need to call-in a prescription or if we need to see you in person.
The intent of these advisory is to protect our dental team, patients and the community from the transmission of COVID-19 and prevent the unnecessary use of the PPE resources that are in extremely short supply, especially N95 masks. As health care providers, we understand our patients’ conditions. We will use our professional judgment to diagnose if a patient is experiencing a true dental emergency and determine if it is appropriate to treat with the appropriate PPE.
