Time to Smile Together!

We have been hard at work getting our office ready for you and we look forward to welcoming you! Our office has always followed infection control recommendations made by all the governing agencies. As you plan for your appointment, make note of the following to ensure everyone’s care and safety.

Please watch this video before you come to your appointment:

Video Highlights:

  • Please brush your teeth before arriving to the office.  The tooth brushing station is closed at this time.
  • All patients must complete the Supplemental Consent to Treat form and COVID-19 Screening form the day of their appointment (will be texted to you the day before your appointment).
  • mask must be worn to the office and will be removed once seated for your appointment.
  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early as A Wellness Screening will be performed upon entry that will consist of taking the patient’s temperature and sanitizing hands.  They also will use an oral peroxide rinse before we start the appointment.
  • Social distancing will be practiced; this includes limited seating for patients in our waiting room.
