    Is there any way that the need for dental offices to close except for emergency treatment only can be brought to the attention of the govt. officials. Maybe if it is presented by a large supplier of dental supplies such as yourself it will get attention. So far I have only seen RECOMMENDATIONS to close so when this window to still work is open,some still are working “business as usual”. If state officials & even better the President would announce for it to be mandatory,then maybe ALL dentists would close. If your company could make that happen,it’d be great! Thank you!
