However, all hospitals and other health care facilities, ambulatory surgical facilities, dental, orthodontic and endodontic offices cannot provide non-essential health care services, procedures, and surgeries.

“Non-essential health care services, procedures, and surgeries” are described as those that can be delayed without undue risk to the patient’s health.
