Dear patients.

We are happy to say that we are now open and operating under our full schedule.

COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we opened with carefully planned and revised office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. Our own families are also patients here, so you can be assured that we’ll be taking care of you just as well as we’ll be taking care of them.

For your peace of mind, the measures we are taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:

Upon Your Arrival at the Office

●     Patients will be screened BEFORE treatment and temperatures will be checked. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

●     ONLY patients will be allowed entry into the office. Parents and other family members will be asked to wait outside whenever possible.

●     Patients are asked to wait in their cars or outside the office until their scheduled appointment time.

●     The waiting area chairs will be spaced apart to allow for 6 feet of distancing.

●     We will ask that you continue to practice social distancing measures in common areas of the office, including the front desk.

●     The front door and the door between the waiting area and operatories will be propped open all day.

●     There will be no physical contact with patients with the exception of treatment.

During Treatment

●     All rooms will be COMPLETELY sterilized before each patient is seated, and public areas, including restrooms, will be cleaned and sterilized frequently throughout the day.

●     All operatories have high-volume air filtration and we have installed a whole office purification system. This system will kill the Covid virus along with other contaminates

●     Our team will STRICTLY follow guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, and ADA in regards to personal protective equipment (PPE) and office sterilization.

●     During patient care, goggles or face shields will be worn by everyone and changed between patients.

●     All surfaces that came in contact with the patient will be wiped with disinfectant including the patient chair.

Checking Out After Your Appointment

●    We will be requesting prepayments when we know the amount of payment which will expidite your visit 

●     All efforts will be made to complete scheduling in the back of the office so you can leave without stopping at the front desk

We are proceeding with an abundance of caution, but we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one.

We also realize that many of you have been impacted financially during this outbreak, and we have solutions to keep dental care affordable for you and your family.

To discuss these payment options, schedule an appointment, or ask us any questions you may have about your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 757-473-8482

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Full Mouth Reconstruction vs. Smile Makeover By drparr on January 23, 2019

Male with straight, attractive teethWhen a minor dental problem develops, treatment is usually pretty quick and simple. However, when multiple dental issues are present, you may feel as though you will never have a healthy, beautiful smile. But thanks to treatments like full mouth reconstruction and smile makeover, just about any smile can be restored.

A smile makeover combines cosmetic dentistry treatments to address aesthetic flaws, while full mouth reconstruction addresses oral health problems through a series of restorative dentistry treatments.

The experienced dental team at The Smile Center helps patients consider full mouth reconstruction vs. smile makeover treatment at our Virginia Beach, VA practice so that we can develop a treatment plan that best meets their unique needs and desires.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Candidates

Full mouth reconstruction is a treatment plan that combines multiple restorative dentistry treatments so that we can address a number of oral health problems at once.

Each treatment restores the strength and function of the teeth, eliminating any issues that compromise the health of the teeth or gums.

Ideal candidates for full mouth reconstruction may suffer from any number of dental complications, such as:

  • Tooth decay
  • Acid erosion
  • Chips, cracks, or fractures
  • Root canal infection
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth loss

Smile Makeover Candidates

A smile makeover is similar to full mouth reconstruction in that it allows our dentists to combine numerous dental treatments into a single dental procedure. However, smile makeover treatment consists of cosmetic dentistry treatments that will address aesthetic flaws and blemishes.

Ideal candidates for smile makeover treatment have dental imperfections such as:

  • Dental stains
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Gapped teeth or overlapping teeth
  • Crooked or twisted teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Small teeth

Benefits of Treatment

Both full mouth reconstruction and smile makeover treatment benefit patients by improving the appearance of the smile. Our dentists can correct oral health problems, or eliminate cosmetic imperfections that are preventing patients from feeling truly confident about the appearance of their smile.

Most patients walk away from treatment with the smile that they always wanted, but really didn’t think was possible.

One of the greatest advantages of smile makeover and full mouth reconstruction is that it can often be completed in just a single treatment session. By combining treatments, our dentists minimize the time that goes into repairing the smile.

Since multiple treatments can be completed at once, this may even save the patient money that they would have spent if everything was done individually.
