During the COVID-19 pandemic,
dental offices are postponing routine care. Contact
us if you think you have a dental emergency to ensure
that you receive care that shouldn’t be postponed.
In the meantime, brush two minutes, twice a day
with a fluoride toothpaste and floss regularly.
Avoid sugary food and drinks to reduce the risk
of cavities. The pause in routine dental appointments
supports “shelter at home” policies
and helps “flatten the curve.” When
conditions change, we will again be available to
help you maintain your oral health through regular
preventive and treatment services.
