Announcement from Pediatric Dental Care
NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe.
In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to close our practice for the next 2 weeks. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance on social separation.
If you have an appointment scheduled with us this week, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment. There WILL be a dentist on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, please call our office as you normally would and our dentists will contact you.
We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.
Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. We wish all of you continued health and strength during this challenging time.

Dr. Ramirez has made taking the kids to the dentist a breeze! She is wonderful with the children and her gentle approach & kid friendly office helps them feel at ease.
I have been taking my 7yr old daughter to Dr Ramirez since her first tooth came out. Dr Ramirez is really great !
My daughter is very nervous when it comes to visiting the dentist. Dr Ramirez and her staff went above and beyond to help her calm down and try to make the experience enjoyable and easy.
Dr. Ramirez and her staff were very helpful. Her staff made it easy to schedule our appointment and explained my child's procedure step by step.
Dr. Ramirez is great. My kids were scared to go to the dentist until they met her. Dr Ramirez was very patient and her method to check toddlers teeth puts them at ease.
Very positive employees! They made my little girls feel comfortable about being at the dentist.
