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!

What can a cosmetic dentist do for me?

Cosmetic Dentists Specialize in Making Smiles Beautiful

Focus on Cosmetic Care

While treating damaged teeth and inflamed gums often improves the overall appearance of your smile, restorative treatments may leave you wanting even better-looking results. Cosmetic dentists specialize in enhancing the aesthetics of your smile to give it that extra boost.

Visualization of Results

Because cosmetic care is meant to improve the appearance of your smile, it’s important to know what you can realistically expect from your results. Many cosmetic dentists use traditional or digital methods to provide a preview of your results during an initial consultation.

Many Available Options

Cosmetic dentists have virtually unlimited treatment options to fit your needs and budget. If you want straighter teeth but do not necessarily need orthodontics, for example, your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers

Professional whitening and other treatments offer much more striking results while avoiding tooth sensitivity and other side effects.

Digital Previews and More

Many of the tools a cosmetic dentist uses overlap with those of family, general, and restorative dentists. However, they may incorporate a number of specialty tools, including: 
        
  • Visualization tools: Digital smile previews and wax smiles (often called wax-ups) can allow you to see what your results might look like before you commit to treatment.
  • Advanced whitening treatments: By receiving teeth whitening from a cosmetic dentist instead of settling for over-the-counter products, you can achieve a significantly whiter smile in a single appointment. Your dentist can also customize treatment to avoid unwanted side effects.
  • Invisalign planning software: This software allows your dentist to take impressions for Invisalign aligners without the mess of traditional putty impressions. 
"Cosmetic procedures continue to be popular with patients seeking cosmetic treatments for a number of reasons including: to improve physical attractiveness and self-esteem (86%); for restorative or health reasons (46%); to look and feel younger (45%); and anticipated upcoming events like weddings (48%)." American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
