Temporary Closure & FAQ

We’re committed to making every patient experience safe, and we believe this is the right thing to do after hearing from our team members. We are all in this together, and we want to do our part to protect our patients and team members by joining the efforts to socially distance.

During this current height of the flu season, Parklane Dental is suspending all regular dental treatments at Arcadia and at Temple City until April 19th. We will open our offices on April 20th until further notice from government health departments.

COVID-19 Resources

What should I know for COVID-19?
We are sure that you have been watching the news of COVID-19, but always follow the recommendations and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

What do I stay safe?
During the height of this cold and flu season, the same practices from CDC that stop the spread of these common illnesses are recommended by CDC. The best way to prevent exposure to cold and flu is to follow these time-trusted tips:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water often and regularly. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people.
  • Stay home when you are sick and seek medical attention when needed.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow. Wash your hands afterwards if you use a tissue. 
  • Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids, eat healthy foods, and manage your stress and fitness to keep your immunity strong.

I feel sick. What should I do?
If you feel sick, stay home and contact your medical provider for accurate and expert advice. For dental emergencies, do not hesitate to give us a call.
