A message to all current and prospective patients

Posted March 24th, 2020

Hello from Highline Dental,

     On March 22, 2020, Texas Governor Greg Abbott gave an executive order mandating that all healthcare facilities stop elective procedures until April 21st. All patients who have been scheduled prior to April 21st, excluding emergencies, will be contacted and rescheduled at a later date. For now, we are anticipating opening our doors for treatment on April 22nd, but this may change as events regarding the COVID-19 pandemic continue to unfold.

     We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but are committed to keeping our patients safe. We will update everyone as we continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 closely.

Thank you. Please stay safe, everyone.

Albert Kim, DDS
