Latest News from the Cavity Busters’ Family During Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Dear Cavity Busters Family:
The health and safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. In response to the outbreak of coronavirus or COVID-19, we are diligently monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), American Dental Association (ADA) and Government Officials to ensure we are taking all necessary precautions.
Based on newly released guidelines from the American Dental Association to postpone non-urgent treatment, we will be temporarily “closing” our offices today, Tuesday, March 17th at 7pm. We must all do our part to help slow the spread of the disease. Please follow guidelines released from the CDC to protect yourselves.
We do not know the timeline for closure, but we anticipate at least 2-3 weeks. If you have an appointment scheduled between March 18th and March 29th,the appointment will automatically be cancelled. You do not need to call the office at this time. When we return to regular office hours our team will contact you to reschedule.
Please disregard any confirmation and appointment reminders as they could have been sent in error. We are actively working to turn off our automatic confirmation system.
We remain committed to being your dental home, and will have a team present in our Northeast office location (240 Geiger Road) who will be available to see emergency patients. If your child is experiencing a dental emergency (bleeding, swelling or pain) please call our office. We will have staff answering the phones and doctors readily available between 9am and 3pm. As always, we are available 24 hours a day to handle any true emergencies.
Red Lion Surgicenter will be open on select days with a reduced schedule to care for our patients with urgent dental needs (pain and/or swelling). If you are scheduled for an appointment in the surgicenter, our staff will contact you with instructions.
All patients and family members visiting for an emergency or surgicenter appointment will be screened for COVID-19, including a Travel/exposure/symptom Questionnaire, and a temperature assessment. We must take every precaution to keep each other safe.
We are so grateful for you and your shared efforts to help keep the virus at bay.
Please stay safe and enjoy the opportunity to spend time with your family!
Your friends at Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters

Cavity Busters Provides the Safest Environment with Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns
Dear Cavity Busters Family:
As confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) are appearing closer to our region we want to share with you how we are taking steps to provide the safest environment possible for our patients and staff.
We are closely following the CDC (Center for Disease Control) for updates. In addition to our routine cleaning and sterilization procedures, we want you to know we have already begun taking extra precautions.
We ask you to also please join our efforts to maintain a safe environment for all:
- Our team will continue to clean and sanitize our offices throughout the day. We have also increased protocols to be sure all doorknobs, counter-tops, and other surfaces are sanitized more frequently. We have instituted an all-hands on deck mentality- so every team member will be ensuring our facilities are clean at all times.
- Though we will miss seeing you, if you are sick or not feeling well, please stay home. It will not only increase your chances of getting better sooner, but will decrease the chance of spreading germs. Please call our office to reschedule your appointment for 2 weeks after recovering from any respiratory illness.
- Please wash your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds – singing the “Happy Birthday” song 2x is a good way to count.
- We know it’s easy to forget, but try not to touch your face or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Please do not share personal items such as drinks, food, or utensils.
- We ask if you have recently traveled abroad (China, South Korea, Japan, Iran, Italy) or have been in contact with anyone with a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus, that you please come back and see us once you have been cleared by a medical professional.
We are so grateful for you and your shared efforts to help keep the germs at bay. If you’d like to check out more information- please visit cdc.gov.

Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters Teams Up with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to Help Fight Childhood Cancer
Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters releases an educational video series made exclusively for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, on how to care for children’s oral and dental health before, during and after cancer treatment
Philadelphia, PA (December 12, 2019) – In an effort to provide continued support to the families of children affected by childhood cancer, Dr. Jason Bresler of Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters, completed an exclusive series of oral hygiene and dental health educational videos for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation that have been placed on the Cavity Busters website, and will be available on Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The videos are aimed at educating patients, parents and caregivers, helping them navigate through cancer diagnosis and treatment stages. Dr. Bresler explains the comprehensive challenges of three important stages, with recommendations for at-home management during cancer treatment, and continuing care to prevent lifelong oral health issues.
Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters’ videos are a “How-to” guide for addressing and managing the health and maintenance of your child’s mouth, teeth and gums during their fight against cancer. The Pre-treatment, treatment and Post-treatment series, provides information, recommendations and guidance on the day-to-day, expected challenges of infection prevention, diet, and daily care of treatment side effects like, but not limited to, dental pain, sore/bleeding gums, and changes in taste.
Doctors Jason, Josh, Rachel, Tracey, and Jill Bresler of Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters, said, “After meeting with Liz Scott of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, we were incredibly impressed with all of the amazing achievements they are accomplishing. Many foundations focus strictly on research, but Alex’s goes beyond just research! They provide resources for children of all ages who are battling cancer, and to parents, siblings, and caregivers, as well. We knew immediately that we wanted to get involved with Alex’s and help make a difference. Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters has designated Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation as one of our main charitable partners, and knew we wanted to do more to make a difference. Education and prevention are crucial when it comes to preventing oral disease in cancer patients, and creating a series of videos to accomplish this, was a no-brainer. We look forward to many years of partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, and creating new programs to help pediatric cancer patients.” For more information about Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters please visit, www.cavitybusters.com and to view videos, click on Community.
Liz Scott, co-executive director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, and Alex’s mom said, “We are grateful to work alongside Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters, a group of such caring pediatric dental professionals who are experienced in treating children with cancer, and are committed to helping to educate families in our community. It means so much to know that Doc Bresler’s can provide valuable information and resources, offering comfort and support with everyday challenges that accompany cancer diagnosis, and treatment.”

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause, and when she passed away at the age of 8, she had raised $1 million. Since then, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada, raising more than $175 million so far, funding nearly 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
