COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.
We are happy to say that we have opened our office for all patient treatment . Our hours of operation will remain the same, Monday - Friday 8-5.
Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, Our own families are also patients here, so you can be assured that we'll be taking care of you just as well as we'll be taking care of them.
For your peace of mind, the measures we will be taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:
Upon Your Arrival at the Office
• Patients will be screened BEFORE entering the office and temperatures will be checked. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.
• A brief questionnaire will be filled out by you so that we may document your medical status for the day of treatment.
• ONLY patients will be allowed entry into the office. Parents and other family members will be asked to wait outside whenever possible.
• Patients are asked to wait in their cars or outside the office until their scheduled appointment time.

Checking Out After Your Appointment
We are proceeding with an abundance of caution, but we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
As part of the Medical Health Delivery System, Dentistry is part of the essential work force that is allowed to continue with treatment patients need. Below are the guidelines used to determine whether your treatment is considered essential or non essential. If your treatment falls under the essential category we encourage you to complete your treatment to avoid an emergency situation. If your treatment does not meet the definition of essential treatment we encourage you to postpone your treatment for 30 days.
At this time we are seeing one patient at a time with no waiting room time. We will be taking the temperature of every staff member and patient before they are allowed to work or be seated in a dental chair. All protocols are followed to ensure the safety of staff and patients.
