Letter to our Senior Dental Center Patients regarding COVID-19

Information Posted on 03/17/2020

The Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center has always been proud to follow the strictest CDC guidelines for infection control and prevention of the spread of communicable diseases. Now, considering the potential spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we will be closing our clinical services starting Monday, March 16th and will reopen when it is safe to do so. It is important to know that the Senior Dental Center has had no cases of COVID-19. Our closure is intended to promote social distancing and to help support efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, especially among our seniors.  

During our clinic closure, we are here for our patients. We will be answering phone calls and responding to online inquiries during business hours. We will make additional follow-up calls by phone for any patients that may need an evaluation by a dentist due to pain, infection or significant discomfort and swelling. All other non-urgent appointments will be rescheduled for a future date.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and thank you for your understanding as we prioritize the health and safety of all our patients and staff. Please call our offices with any questions you or your loved one may have (North County 760-280-2270, Downtown 619-795-1301).


Dr. Karen Becerra
CEO/Dental Director
