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!

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) focuses on treating diseases, injuries, and defects in the head, neck, face, jaw, and mouth.

OMS specialists are surgically trained in hospital residency programs, so they have unparalleled experience in a number of conditions.

Superior Surgical Skill for Safe, Precise Treatment

Advanced Surgical Training

Most oral surgeons undergo about four to six years of additional training in comparison to a general dentist. This includes participating in a medical residency program. As such, they are extensively knowledgeable in a broad range of conditions and are equipped with advanced surgical skills to address these issues.

Unparalleled Precision

Due to their extensive training, oral surgeons know the best techniques to not only ensure an optimal outcome but also minimize your risk of complications. Their surgical skill affords them the ability to make informed decisions when planning and performing your treatment for incredibly safe, high-quality care. For these reasons, dentists will typically refer patients to an oral surgeon for complex procedures.

Reconstructive & Cosmetic Capabilities

These distinctions are especially important for patients who have experienced facial injuries. Oral surgeons are typically capable of performing reconstructive and plastic surgeries to help restore your appearance after an accident. This is an important part of the healing process after trauma.

Tools & Technology Used by Oral Surgeons

Your doctor may use a number of tools to assess your condition:

  • 3-D printing
  • Cone beam CT imaging
  • Surgical guides for dental implants
  • Digital impressions
  • Digital x-rays
  • Intraoral cameras
  • Laser therapy

Using advanced equipment and techniques, oral surgeons can provide an accurate diagnosis, better treatment planning, and optimal outcomes.

The Value of Expert Surgical Care

"Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) has the specialized education and training in the complexities of the bone, skin, muscles and nerves involved, to ensure you get the best possible results. " American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Do Oral Surgeons Only See Referred Patients?

Since oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specialists, you will typically be referred to them by your dentist or general medical practitioner based on the severity of your condition. However, a referral is not required to see this type of doctor.
