To Our Patients
In response to the recommendation of the ADA (American Dental Association), Tulip Tree Dental Care will be postponing all elective procedures and hygiene appointments and closing our offices through April 7, 2020. We will continue to see Emergency Patients by appointment only. Please call our office if you are experiencing pain or an abscess and we will get you in to see Dr. Hurcomb as soon as possible. We will work with our patients to reschedule all appointments once we are able to re-open.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are taking extra precautions to minimize exposure to our staff and patients. Our entire team is monitoring daily updates and recommendations from the CDC and making changes in our office to create the safest, most hygienic environment we possibly can.
If you are experiencing any symptoms such as a cough, shortness of breath, a fever of over 100-degrees, etc., we would kindly ask that you reschedule your appointment. If you are not experiencing any symptoms and have not had contact with anyone who has, you and your family members are safe to attend your scheduled appointments. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions or concerns you may have.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure to this virus. However, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask. Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a healthcare facility).
While the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus is low for most people (according to the CDC), rest assured that when you come in for your dental visits, your health and safety are top priorities today and every day.
