We have officially reopened and are excited to once again be serving you with your dental care needs. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: We follow the latest and highest standards of infection control outlined by the CDC and OSHA.

The following enhanced infection control processes will now be implemented so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable:

 ~If you have a cough or fever you will not be seen. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment for a later date.

 ~Upon arrival to your appointment, you will be asked to sanitize your hands and also wear a face mask. A COVID-19 Screening questionnaire will be given and your temperature will be taken prior to receiving any dental treatment. If you have a fever of 100.4 or above, you won’t be seen.

 ~Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This may mean fewer options available for scheduling your appointment. Also, no companions unless strictly necessary, is preferred. We apologize for any inconveniences during this phase.

 ~Dental cleanings will be performed with the usual thorough care but with hand instruments only, followed by a manual polishing technique to complete your cleaning with the minimum production of aerosols. These are measures that were recommended by the CDC & OSHA.

 You can be assured safety measures will continue to be updated as  more information develops. We look forward to serving you,

  • "I'd rate them above 5 stars if I could! The staff is unbelievably kind and welcoming and they are experts in giving you the most comfortable experience possible. The facility is beautiful, clean, and calming, and I have never had a more comfortable and easy dental procedure than the one provided by Dr. Felix. She made my experience as painless as possible and shows true care about her patients and their day to day dental practicality, comfort, and appearance. I would never consider another dental office in the state ."
