Operating as usual

We are excited to announce we have reopened to serve our patients. Our top priority is the safety and wellness of our patients, their families and our staff. We’re paying special attention to every detail – from patient arrival, to procedure, to check out – and we are instituting new protocols for all appointments.
Our team will be reaching out to our patients over the coming days and weeks to schedule or reschedule appointments. Please be patient with us over the next few weeks as we work to contact patients to confirm appointments and get missed appointments back on the schedule. If you need to contact us give us a call.

We are often asked if it is okay for kids (and adults!) to chew gum. The answer is YES! In fact, the American Dental Association (ADA), says that although sugary chewing gum may cause tooth decay, sugar-FREE gum can aid in cleaning teeth, by increasing saliva in the mouth, which washes away plaque. **Chewing gum is NOT an alternative to brushing and flossing twice a day! #bubblegum #cleanteeth #sugarfree #brushandfloss

Strawberries contain a lot of malic acid, which acts to naturally whiten teeth. However, they also contain natural sugars, so after eating strawberries, it is good to drink water or brush your teeth! #whiteteeth #smile #oralhygienetips
