Dear Patients,

We hope this message finds you and your families well amidst this growing pandemic. As you well know, the dental community nationwide has taken steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Indiana Dental Association has now fully endorsed recent ADA recommendations to cease all elective dental procedures for three full weeks, effective immediately.

Dr’s Stevenson, Fairchild, and Surber have heard these recommendations and will be following suit. We are working to cancel all elective procedures including new consultations and routine follow-up appointments during this time.

As oral and maxillofacial surgeons we understand our position in the management of emergent needs to prevent patients inundating emergency rooms and immediate care clinics. To cope, we will maintain shortened office hours at our Valparaiso location to assess emergency patients from our referrals and greater dental community. Thank you all in advance. We are all in this together.

Oral surgery that’s a lovely experience?! Seems like that would not be possible, but it is. Everyone there – from the staff to Dr. Fairchild – was just wonderful. My procedure was quick and painless. I received a follow-up call from Dr. Fairchild later that day asking how I was feeling and if I had any questions. I received a Thank You card in the mail within a couple days of my visit. I highly recommend them and I will certainly visit them again if the need arises!
