Plans for COVID-19

Obviously, none of us are in a position that we would have imagined just a few weeks ago. Plans for working with non-profits across the state are on hold for the foreseeable future. Courses for dental professionals, set for months, remain scheduled until we have a better understanding of the timeframe for social distancing in this situation.

Upcoming Courses

At this time, we have not made a determination on the rescheduling of future courses (including the April 18-19 Coronal Polishing in OKC and the April 25-26 in Bartlesville).  We are in communication with the instructors and facilities and will keep those enrolled in any affected future courses informed.  Rest assured, we do not want to do anything that will put anyone in harm's way. We also do not want to unnecessarily reschedule a course should the situation vastly improve in the next month.

Everyone enrolled in the effected courses will receive an email and a text (if a textable number was listed in the "Phone Number (for use outside of office hours)" field) in plenty of time to make the necessary arrangements.  If you are unsure of what information you provided when you enrolled, you can email your preferred email and phone number to Stacey Bonham to have it updated.

Should rescheduling become necessary we will make every effort to work with enrolled students for replacement courses at the appropriate time.

MobileSmiles

As of 3/18/2020, MobileSmiles Oklahoma will be closed indefinitely. Information will be posted on our websites about future plans – www.okdf.org & www.mobilesmilesok.org. Please refer to these sites for consistent updates AS THEY ARE AVAILABLE. While we deeply regret this decision, we will have no dental services available. This was a difficult decision to make but was done in the best interests of our patients, your clients, volunteers, and staff.

As you know best, the majority of our patients have a chronic illness (some have multiple underlying health issues: diabetes, COPD, hypertension, oral cancer, and the list goes on). These are the very vulnerable people who do not need to be in a group setting on our 37-foot mobile dental office. 

There will be a time, in the near future, when it is prudent to restart our program. We will be in touch as soon as we have an understanding of what that time looks like.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to email Jordan Blalock.
