Dear Patients,

As of today, March 18, 2020 our practice will be temporarily closed in response to the recommendations of Governor Janet Mills, the Maine Dental Association and the CDC to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Maine.

While the office will remain temporarily closed for elective procedures, your dental health will remain our top priority. If you have a dental emergency, please contact the office and we will triage and schedule accordingly.

Our number one priority is the health and safety of our staff and patients. We will keep you informed as we are updated by the CDC and Maine Dental Board.

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate through this process.

Best Regards,
Dr. Oshetski & Staff
