Woman Campaigns To Raise Awareness After Vision Loss from Dental Accident

A South Jersey mother has lost part of her vision from her dentist thanks to an unfortunate accident that very easily could have been prevented. Her dentist did not take the proper precautions with a federal recommendation that some dentists just do not follow.

“This was 100 percent preventable, what happened to me,” Jenn said. “If eye protection was worn, we wouldn’t be here and I would still have my vision and my life would be a lot different.”

Jenn’s talking about plastic glasses. The CDC and American Dental Association recommend that all dental patients wear eye protection. It’s a guideline that isn’t always followed.

A MESSAGE TO OUR PATIENTS

Because of the ongoing concern over the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC has implemented specific guidelines for all eye practices. As a result, we are postponing all routine visits until further notice and only responding to urgent and emergent needs at this time. Many of our offices may soon be closed, but we will attempt to handle patient needs on a case by case basis. If you need an extension on a prescription for glasses, contacts, or medication, please email us at [email protected]. If you have an urgent need, you can try to reach us at 910.527.9519 and we will do our best to get back with you within an hour. Please leave your name, phone number, and the office you last visited. If for some reason our phone service is not working and we do not respond within an hour, please seek outside care. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to returning to normal hours of operation as soon as it is safe to do so.
