The Important Things We are Doing to Keep You and Our Team Safe During the COVID-19 Pandemic

We are excited to welcome you back to the practice and to assure you of our commitment to your dental health.  While many things have changed over the past few months, one thing has remained the same:  our rock-solid commitment to your safety and well-being through a comprehensive Infection Control program updated with the latest recommendations from healthcare industry experts.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and we are constantly focusing on the very latest recommendations from the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to keep you safe and comfortable.  We closely follow these agencies to ensure our infection control processes are up-to-date with any new rulings or guidance.  So, rest assured, we are laser focused and ready to get back to serving your dental needs!
