Following changes in recommendations and restrictions, our office will be resuming our normal business hours effective May 4, 2020. We will be reducing the number of appointments we have available every day to allow for added sanitation steps and increased down time of chairs between patients.
We have strict screening measures and infection control protocols in place to ensure that both our patients and staff members are in the safest possible environment during dental visits and procedures. Please look out for confirmation emails that outline current protocols for your appointment. In addition, we have equipped our rooms with Medify Air Purification Systems to aid in the reduction of aerosols and remove 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns utilizing a high-efficiency H13 TRUE HEPA medical-grade filter.
In preparation for your appointment, we request that you please bring a mask to wear while you check in and refrain from bringing any unnecessary family members or friends.
Please give the office a call to reschedule your appointment if you are feeling ill, have traveled on an airplane in the last 2 weeks or have been in contact with anyone testing positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation! If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact our office and we will be more than happy to help 🙂

Based on the updated recommendations and restrictions, our office has decided to reduce our hours to Monday/Thursday for emergency/urgent patients only. Effective March 30th – May 1st.
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
