Making Columbia Smile



Dear Patients and Families,

Due to the changes and recommendations made by the President, Governor, the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists, we have made the decision to temporarily close Tompkins Orthodontics. We want to take a proactive stance to protect all of our families, team, patients and community during this COVID-19 pandemic. We will be closed the remainder of this week and next week.

We understand that cancelling appointments will introduce some frustration and delays in treatment but we will all work together to get through this difficult time.

We will be taking calls for true orthodontic emergency patients but will not be repairing broken braces - unless it is causing discomfort.

If you have an appointment scheduled this week or of the week of March 23rd please call our office so we can reschedule your appointment. We will be making rolling cancellations as this situation continues to develop.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please stay healthy and take care of yourselves and family.
