Dear valued patient,

In light of growing concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, especially given its presence in the state of New Mexico, we are writing to provide you an update from our office.

First, we want to assure you that your health and safety is always our highest priority. Our office has been closely monitoring and adhering to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and we have implemented additional sanitary and disinfecting measures in our office, in addition to our already very strict infection control practices. We have provided additional training and instructions on cleaning procedures to our entire dental team and have required that if staff are sick, they do not come to the office.

However, even with all these precautionary measures, the situation around COVID-19 is unprecedented. As health care leaders in New Mexico, dentists across the state are making additional efforts to stop the spread and ultimately contain the virus.

To this end, we are requesting patients to postpone all elective procedures and non-urgent visits through April 4th. In addition, we request that if you are symptomatic (fever, cough, shortness of breath) or have traveled to affected areas that you reschedule your appointments. We will remain available to treat patients on an urgent basis Mondays – Thursdays from 9 am – 1 pm.

If you are experiencing pain or have any dental emergency, please call our office at 575-521-9375

If you have an upcoming hygiene or non-urgent appointment:

We will be in contact with you soon to reschedule and we will notify you when we are fully prepared to resume business as usual for all of our patients. Our phone lines will remain open for your questions and concerns.

If you are scheduled for urgent dental care:

Appointments for procedures such as a filling or root canal, will remain unchanged, however, we may contact you to see if you would like to reschedule and have your treatment completed sooner.

Some dental offices have already made the decision to close until the outbreak is contained. If that becomes necessary, we will provide additional updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to take the necessary precautions as outlined by the CDC and the state of New Mexico to protect your health and the health of those around you, and regularly check for updates as this unpredictable situation is rapidly evolving

Again, the health and safety of our patients remains our top priority.
Please contact our office at 575-521-9375 with any questions.

Sincerely, Dr. Wallis, Dr. Margarit, and Staff
