Our Commitment to Safety
We recognize times have changed. Priorities have shifted. Today, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff and patients. With this in mind we are happy to share some additional steps we are taking to make every visit to our office as safe as possible. These actions are incremental to our normal standard of care that meet or exceed all CDC, OSHA and ADA guidelines for dental practices.
Our goal is to add peace of mind to the friendliness and clinical excellence you have come to expect. Of course, this is an ongoing commitment that will evolve with the times. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns.
We are in this together! Never underestimate the power of a smile!
