    Our Stance on COVID-19

    We understand that this is an unprecedented time for many patients with the coronavirus still being an active concern. However, more than ever before, your oral health plays a crucial role in your overall health. The mouth is the gateway to the body, but when common oral infection and disease take hold, it impacts your immune system! This can make you more susceptible to becoming sick in the future. Your best defense is good oral health, and maintaining your regular dental appointments makes that possible. We are following all CDC guidelines to provide our patients and team with a healthy and safe environment to provide life changing dental care.
