**Important Announcement Regarding COVID-19 coronavirus**

Dear Pura Vida Orthodontics patients, friends and family;

In the spirit of commitment to our community and to our patients, we will be temporarily closing our office starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020. At the time of this announcement, we expect to stay closed for two weeks as recommended by the Minnesota Board of Dentistry and the Minnesota Dental Association. 

While the risks posed to the average person are minimal, especially given the stringent infection control protocols we have in place at Pura Vida Orthodontics, we feel the great responsibility to ensure we protect the elderly and immunocompromised people in our community through social distancing in order to keep the transmission rate of COVID-19 as low as possible. 

In the coming days, we will continue to carefully monitor all guidelines released by our local and federal public health entities. Until deemed safe to return to full function, we will be available to see emergency appointments BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Please call 763-784-0420 or email [email protected] to schedule a time to come in. For any non-essential patient appointments already scheduled during this time, we will be in touch with you to reschedule. 

We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this unprecedented time. We do not take your trust and confidence in us for granted. 

Humbly and sincerely, 

Drs. Madson, Hart and the Pura Vida Orthodontics Team
