The safety, health and well-being of our mutual patients has always been our top priority. Whether this is through the care we provide or the environment of our surgical facilities. Our internal policies and procedures have always exceeded federally mandated guidelines to protect our patients and staff. Our commitment to provide your patients the safest care throughout this evolving situation is not something we take lightly.
We always have and will continue to go above and beyond to ensure that we are exceeding the highest standard of care and customer service.
Here are a few extra precautions that we are taking, but not limited to:
• Monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization.
• Following the news related to local conditions on an hourly basis.
• Increasing the frequency of our sanitation practices inside and outside our surgical facilities.
• Wiping down our waiting rooms, chairs, counters and door handles hourly.
• Providing additional hand sanitizer to patients.
• Allowing our patients to wait in their cars or outside our office and notifying them when we are ready for their appointment.
We are also asking our patients a few questions to help mitigate any potential exposures. These questions are:
• If you are a patient who has traveled outside the US within the last month
• Had contact with someone who traveled outside the US and was/is now sick
• Had contact with someone who was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus or the flu
• Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms: Temperature, Active Cough or Trouble Breathing
If you answer yes, our doctor will be informed and will take appropriate action to protect patients and staff.

Gum disease can cause severe irritation of the gums, and to get rid of gum disease, the process was painful. Now, with new dental advances, patients no longer have to worry about painful gum disease procedures and long healing time.
Doctors now are turning to laser gum therapy. Laser therapy now kills the diseased gum without knives and sutures. The laser penetrates the area, killing off any of the infected spot, in a minimally invasive way, so healing time goes down and so does gum bleeding.

Every time you visit your dentist, you may receive a new toothbrush from them. While you may take it as a token for the ‘trauma’ you think you’ve just faced, but reality is it’s because of how frequently you should be changing your toothbrush. It is recommended by the American Dental Association, or the ADA that you should change your toothbrush every three to four months, or when your bristles become frayed. Why is it so important to change your toothbrush so often?
