WE’RE HERE FOR YOU
We’re all about smiles. Smiles of all kinds — a kind smile, a shy smile, small or big smiles. With one small movement – a moment, day or life can be made brighter.
But when you have a dental concern, it’s nothing to smile about. Every 14 seconds, someone visits a hospital emergency room for a dental emergency in the U.S., yet most ERs are not equipped to provide dental care. Dentists are a critical link in our overall healthcare system which is why we’ve had offices open for emergencies since the crisis started.
SMILE SAFELY PROGRAM
Our goal is to provide you and your family healthy, safe smiles. With our Smile Safely Program you can rest assured that we’re taking extraordinary measures to ensure you and your family’s safety and the safety of our teams. Watch our Smile Safely Program video:
HEIGHTENED CLEANING & SAFETY STANDARDS
Spray, scrub, wipe repeat. It’s our new favorite sound. We’ve always been committed to the highest safety standards—but now deep cleaning is done before, during and after visits even in the lobby. Our teams are geared up (literally – watch the video) to sanitize equipment, chairs, tables, door handles, countertops etc. many times a day. And we don’t stop there. PPE (think masks, gloves, gowns, and face shields) is worn by everyone in the office. Even patients get to take part by keeping masks on at all times except when being treated and doing a good disinfecting rinse before and after care.
PATIENT AND EMPLOYEE SCREENING
We’re checking to see if our patients (and staff) are healthy with a few questions and a temperature check every day, at every visit. Sounds a bit extreme? You’re right, extreme is good when it comes to patient safety and health.
United we stand…six feet apart. While we love the bustle of a busy office, we’ll be spacing appointments to avoid crowding. And we’ve revamped our waiting rooms. They may even have 4 wheels, as we’ll ask wait in your car if there are others in the lobby (finally music you like listening to). Don’t worry, we’ll give you a call or text when it’s safe to come in.
WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER. LET’S SMILE SAFELY TOGETHER.
