Welcome to our office!
Our office is pleased to inform you that from day one of COVID concerns, we began to schedule our patients for all treatment, taking all the necessary precautions as set forth by the CDC. We put air purifiers in every room, limit the number of people allowed in the office at one time, supply hand sanitizer, use touchless thermometers, and of course, have invested heavily in PPE (personal protective equipment), masks (N95), gowns, face shields, and gloves. You can expect to be called before your appointment so that we may ask you the “screening” questions pertaining to the virus; how do you feel, have you lost either the sense of taste or smell, have you traveled, or have you been exposed to anyone who’s positive for COVID 19? If all those answers are “NO”, we ask that on the day of your appointment you call from the parking lot so that we can make sure it is clear to come up with your mask on. We have a new doorbell to ring so that someone may let you in.
Some appointments may need to be adjusted due to the fact that we now need to allow more time per appointment so that our treatment areas can be disinfected in accordance with the CDC guidelines for aerosol transmitted viruses.
We care about your health and are doing our best to keep you safe. Thank you for your cooperation, and trusting us with your care.

In 1996 we restored our first dental implant!

Ask us if dental implants could be right for you. http://www.straumann.us/…/solutions-to-replace-your-teeth.html
