Working Together For a Healthy Community
In accordance with the guidelines from the California Dental Association, Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill will be closed for the next two weeks. We will be available only for emergency services during this period. We will continue to reach out to you to provide updates as the situation progresses. If you currently have an appointment in the next two weeks, we will be contacting you to reschedule.

Message from the California Dental Association:
As the facts and situation around COVID-19 (coronavirus) continue to evolve, and in step with Gov. Newsom’s recent Declaration of a State of Emergency, including the call for all seniors over the age of 65 and residents with chronic conditions to self-isolate at home, the California Dental Association is requesting the cooperation of all California dentists and issuing the following guidance:
The California Dental Association strongly recommends that dentists practicing in California voluntarily suspend non-urgent or non-emergency dental care for the next 14 days. As always, it is expected that dentists will continue to be available as needed for emergency care and services.
CDA does not make this request lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution during this historic public health emergency. As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in “flattening the curve” in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus.
Our collective actions now will determine the spread of COVID-19, and this recommendation is being made after careful deliberation and in consultation with state and national public health experts. We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protective equipment critical for emergency dental care and frontline health care personnel responding to the pandemic. We recognize the gravity of these extreme measures and are sensitive to the economic impact of such actions. Rest assured that CDA will advocate on behalf of all dentists in California for economic relief packages.
Pediatric Dentistry Temporary Closure
Moving forward and working together we are optimistic that all of our efforts combined to combat the spread of this virus will ultimately save lives and prevent sickness. We look forward to reopening soon and remind everyone to practice safety and cleanliness measures to protect themselves, their families, friends and neighbors!
