To All Hodges Orthodontics Patients:
What a difference a day makes. We had previously hoped to continue our normal schedule, but with increased concern, we have made the hard decision to reschedule appointments for the next few weeks. In cooperation with the combined recommendations of the Mississippi Dental Board of Examiners and the American Dental Association, it has been recommended to delay non-essential dental procedures for 3 weeks, which includes most orthodontic treatment.
All retainer check appointments are encouraged to submit a Virtual Checkup in lieu of rescheduling their appointment at this time. The Virtual Checkup will allow you to send in photos of your teeth and if there are questions regarding any problems, we will schedule a retainer check for you or your family member if needed. You can follow the link for Virtual CheckUp here: VIRTUAL CHECKUP.
If everything is going along okay and you’re still happy with your smile, then we will not reschedule your retainer check at this time. But as always is the case, we encourage you to call us with any concerns that may develop.
To say the least, these are unusual times. We have tried to make decisions that have the best interest of our patients, our team, and our community at heart. We sincerely apologize for any extra inconvenience that this poses. We continue to be available for emergency situations that need immediate attention. Thank you for your understanding!
Sophia needs a new retainer. She accidentally threw hers away. We will schedule appointment when you open back up.
Suzanne. We will put this in Sophia’s chart and contact you for new appointment. Unfortunately, we are not exactly sure when that will be – hopefully sooner than later. Regardless we will get her an appointment so we can keep track of this as soon as possible. Stay safe and we will her her fixed up soon!
