We continue to provide routine patient care following the recommendations and guidelines from the American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. As a healthcare facility, we still have enhanced infection control protocols in place. We require that everyone continues to wear a mask in our office & encourage all of our eligible patients to be vaccinated. Get more information here.
