Office Blog


In short, as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus, the guidelines passed down by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and an Executive Order instituted by Governor DeSantis, our office is currently closed and will remain closed until Monday, May 11, 2020.  In case of a dental emergency, call our office at 407-352-6959 for instructions.

For the most complete information pertaining to our office policy as this relates to the coronavirus and COVID-19, please read the message below in its entirety. However, during these trying times, a little "pick-me-up" might do us all a little good. After reading this message, we encourage you to scroll down to take a peek inside "Our Office Blog" for nice celebrations and good times we've had at VP Dentistry in the recent past ... it's bound to put a beautiful VPD smile on your face!

As is true for us all, Venetian Pointe Dentistry is faced with unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances related to the novel coronavirus and COVID-19.  The health and well-being of the public we serve as well as the health and safety of the loyal members of our crew is our top priority.  Be assured that we are taking all measures promulgated by the CDC to minimize the threat of the spread of this virus.

Governor DeSantis has instituted an Executive Order that mandates that dental offices and other healthcare offices in the state of Florida limit our practices to “essential procedures only” until May 8th.  The exact quote is shown here: "All hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, office surgery centers, dental, orthodontic and endodontic offices, and other health care practitioners' offices in the State of Florida are prohibited from providing any medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedure or surgery which, if delayed, does not place a patient's immediate health, safety, or wellbeing at risk, or will, if delayed, not contribute to the worsening of a serious or life-threatening medical condition."

As a result of this Executive Order and per the recommendations of the CDC, we are planning to reopen our office on Monday, May 11th.  This date naturally is subject to change dependent upon the state of affairs when the time comes.  As noted previously, we will do our best to keep you abreast pertaining to the operation of our practice as May 11th nears.  Between now and when we do reopen, dental emergencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis and only after carefully screening patients over the phone as this relates to the coronavirus.  In the event of a dental emergency, call the office and you will be directed to the doctor on call.

Your patience and understanding during this crisis will be greatly appreciated.  In the meantime, we wish for all of you good health in the times ahead. - Drs. Rampi and Palmer
