The Impact of Pandemic Gaps
Our of concern regarding the pandemic, many people have put off seeing the dentist for over a year now. Since serious concerns like cavities, infection, and even periodontal disease could form in only a matter of months, many of us have smiles in desperate need of attention! If you’ve put off care, then call to schedule a visit. Know that our team is still practicing strict health and safety measures to keep you and your family safe. We’re limiting people in the waiting room, aerating PPE (masks, face shields, gloves, and gowns), and following CDC recommendations in cleaning our office.
Your Initial Exam and Cleaning
Once you see us, we will perform a detailed exam of your smile and take images with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. These images will be available instantly chairside, so we can walk you through our diagnostic process and help you understand the current state of your smile. If we find concerns, we will create a treatment plan to address them, and also discuss what you and your family can do to keep teeth and gums strong from home. We believed in a personalized approach to care!
