Dear friends, patients and colleagues:

I hope this message finds you well and safe. I am writing to inform you of how NICD will be conducting business in April and May.

The most recent modeling projects that our Nebraska communities will reach peak viral experience in late April and early May. Consistent with the best practices advised by the American Dental Association, the Nebraska Dental Board and our community leaders, NICD will be closed during the months of April and May. This action will help to diminish the community spread of COVID-19 and to “flatten the curve,” which will reduce the number of illnesses and deaths among our fellow citizens.

Our dental team will be available for emergency needs and essential services, either by phone or in person by appointment. My cell phone number is (402) 960-4380. Dr. Pruitt’s cell phone number is (308) 360-1412. Feel free to contact either of us with any questions, comments or needs you may have during the coming months.

On a personal note, I would like to urge each and every one of you to practice all of the recommendations the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have put forth. We have the benefit of living in a sparsely populated state, but in no way should we assume that what is happening in more densely populated areas could not happen here as well. Being a proud Nebraskan, I would like to think that we have the grit to persevere through anything. With that, I wish you and your families the best during these unprecedented, challenging times.

Warmest regards,

Michael Sesemann and Staff
