Watch our Covid Video

We made it! Our office is open, and we are excited to see each and every one of you! You are likely to notice many changes in our office as a result of COVID-19.

IMPORTANT: Please read the entirety of this post so that we can be compliant with Phase 1 mandates.

  • Our waiting room/lobby will remain closed. We will not be offering refreshments, toys or magazines.
  • We have a new intake and checkout process. Check in will be curbside, an assistant will come out to get you at your appointment time. Everyone entering the office is required to furnish and wear a mask. Only patients with an appointment will be allowed in the building with 1 parent. We will be taking a temperature and pulse oximeter reading on anyone who comes in the building as well. Anyone who exhibits symptoms WILL NOT be seen.
  • Some insurances have temporarily offered to compensate for the additional cost of PPE required to operate safely during COVID. You may see this on your Insurance EOB’s, however, it will not result in any additional out of pocket for our patients.
  • We have installed many upgrades in the office for your safety as well as ours. Our office is now equipped with air scrubbers, enhanced intra and extra oral suction to minimize aerosol. Hepa filtration and hypochlorus foggers will be used to clean the air during and between patients. Additionally, we are utilizing the highest standard of PPE available. For those who do not already have masks for their children can obtain free masks through your local Health Department.

If we have not already reached out to you, please contact us for an appointment via phone, website or email (

Warmest Regards,
