COVID 19 Letter to Patients

To our wonderful parents, family, friends, and our greater Knoxville community,

We understand the impact of this stressful time in regards to Covid-19 (also known as Coronavirus) on all of our lives as it continues to unfold. We strive to monitor the latest news from the CDC and the ADA in conjunction with the most updated government precautions. Here at Buzz Nabers Dental Studios, our patients and our team are the top priority.

For patient care, our team will continue to perform the standard infection control practices and universal precautions for all patients; this includes continued use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

For housekeeping of our facilities, we have expanded our protocols for further cleaning/disinfecting of door handles, desks and countertops, keyboards and mouses, telephones, etc.

Our team, including our doctors, will be continuously monitored for symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath.

As of March 23, both of our locations will be open in a limited capacity to help patients with emergency dental care only. Following the ADA recommendations to postpone elective dental procedures, we will be rescheduling all dental cleanings for at least the next week, starting March 23.

Please feel comfortable to contact us with questions and further screening for Covid- 19. We will update as appropriate based on state and federal recommendations. Buzz Nabers Dental Studios is committed to providing the highest level of care to our patients, both new and established, and we will do our best to maintain this standard throughout this unprecedented crisis.

We hope that this illness passes quickly and there is minimal impact on our community and beyond.

-Dr. Buzz Nabers
