Coronavirus Concerns & Precautions
Hello Friends of Stumpf Dental,
I just wanted to update you on our status. I hope your family is doing well during this interesting time in our country. We appreciate and value each of our families and look forward to seeing you soon.
Currently, the office is closed but I am still available in a limited capacity for emergencies. I (Dr. Stumpf) check emails daily at email@example.com, and my cell # 414-915-5663 is also a resource for texting immediate questions. In addition, I have set up remote capabilities for accessing your dental radiographs and photos if I need to reference them or confer with my fabulous team of specialists.
There is also something new that I have begun, and it is “teledentistry.” Yes, you read that correctly. The idea is to triage dental pain and keep those dental emergencies out of the emergency rooms. Many times, things can be handled temporarily with medications or other remedies I have learned during my 37 years in dentistry. There are also times when facial pain is muscular or joint and not tooth related at all. In addition, infants that are having trouble nursing and may have a tongue tie are in urgent need of an evaluation. These are a few of the things that I can handle with a virtual visit. As time goes on, I expect my virtual list to be much greater.
I am having a link put onto my website BestCareInTheChair.com. There you can request a virtual appointment and we will do a live internet visit when convenient for both of us. You can use your smart phone, a computer or tablet. You need a camera, microphone, speaker, and an internet connection. As a courtesy to all my current patients, there is no fee for this visit. It should be up on the website shortly. If you know of a friend or family member that would like a virtual visit as well, I would be happy to help.
Until April 30, 2020, the office will be closed until Governor Evers mandate is lifted. Things change daily and I will reach out to you as needed. I will not send out needless messages as we are all tired of the barrage of mail in our inboxes.
We are in this together. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
