Our staff are now taking weekly surveillance COVID tests to ensure that we are keeping our community safe.

Once your appointment has been made please ensure you, or those around you, have not had any fever, coughing, shortness of breath in the past 14 days. 

Upon arrival to your appointment:

2. We will then provide you with a mask, if you don't already have one, and ask you to continue to wait in the car until your dentist brings you in.
