Thanks to Center for Smile Design, Dr. O’Connell and Dr. Johnson for helping my son and Singer Chris Carrillo with his beautiful smile! You guys did a great job!!
••• mom forgot his shoes + we were 10 minutes late BUT Jude had his first dental cleaning and was a rockstar! He is loving his new book + fish from Dr. Johnson•••
My sons first time here and he was terrified 😔. When the AMAZING Carla pulled out the Batman glasses 👓 that matched the Batman shirt 👚 and Batman socks he was wearing back, he was feeling pretty brave!! 💪 Amazing first (several for the rest of us) visit!!
This handsome guy had his first EVER dentist visit today. He was NOT excited to go. But when the AMAZING Carla pulled out the Batman glasses and transformed him there were NO TEARS AT ALL- cause Batman is SO BRAVE 😍. *Best part NO CAVITIES We love ❤️ Center For Smile Design.

[05/06/20]   To our Dental Family,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adheres to each agencies' recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
~Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions and again when you are in the office.
~We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office.
~You may see that our waiting room no longer has magazines, children's toys, and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
~Appointments will be managed to allow social distancing between patients. That might mean you are offered fewer options for scheduling you appointment.
~We will be taking temperatures at the beginning of your appointment.
~We recommend you bring your own mask to wear before and after your appointment.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Dr. Johnson, Dr. Bridgeford, and Staff

Hello Spring!

[03/17/20]   A Note to our Family of Patients:

Due to the recent dental guidelines regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) we have decided to close our office for all non-emergency dental work. We have done this to help do our part in the mitigation of the spread of the virus. We want you to know that we did not take this decision lightly and it is being done out of an abundance of caution. Although it may be an inconvenience to reschedule your dental appointment, we believe that it is important for the health and safety of all of our patients and employees to postpone these appointments. When the time is right, we will be available again, and look forward to seeing you! Thank you for understanding and stay safe!

Dr. Johnson, Dr. Bridgeford and Staff

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The impacts on your dental visits at our office will be minimal.
