Announcement from Berkeley Prosthodontics (updated April 2, 2020): NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE
Dear Berkeley Prosthodontics Patients,
In light of the evolving pandemic and strong suggestions by public health officials, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our practice from March 16, 2020 to May 3, 2020. We do not make this decision lightly, however our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. If you have an appointment scheduled with us during those weeks, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment. In the case of emergency situations, we WILL have a dentist on call.
If you need emergency dental care, please call Dr. Au’s emergency dental line at 1-925-529-4704.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the guidance from the county, state and the CDC. For now, we will determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.
Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. We thank you for your patience during this challenging time and wish all of you continued health.
Sincerely, Amy Au, Barbara Curtis, and the Berkeley Prosthodontics Dental Team

How often should I be seen for examinations and cleanings?
We know with your busy schedule keeping up with your regular dental checkups and cleanings can feel like a hassle. Sometimes it is hard to find the time to fit your appointment in but it is important that you are able to be seen. Keeping up-to-date on your cleanings can save you money from other pricey procedures due to decay.
Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that could lead to serious dental decay problems in the future. That is why we here at Berkeley Prosthodontics and General Dentistry typically recommend at least annual dental examinations and 6-month-recall cleanings. However, some patients may have different dental presentations and need more frequent cleanings. We see each patient and make appropriate recommendations accordingly.
