Dear Community,

We understand the difficulty everyone is going through these last several weeks. These are unprecedented periods for Orange County, America, and the world. We are all confronting the COVID-19 pandemic together and it is priority to continue to care for one another, treat others with respect, and make smart decisions in our daily activities. We are all working together to figure out a way forward, and stay safe.

Please continue your daily routine to brush and floss. Please relay that message, model the positive behavior, and/or assist grandparents and children with brushing and flossing. If you need to see a dentist for a dental emergency, please contact your local dental practice/clinic or the Health Care Agency Health Referral Line (1-800-564-8448) for guidance on the next steps. Thank you to everyone for keeping yourself and the community safe by adhering to state and local guidelines. Below are some COVID-19 related resources.

Warmest Regards,

Dr. Thomas Nakatsuchi
Health Care Agency – Dental Director
