Our dental office’s response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We know it has been a difficult couple of weeks, but we want you to know you are safe when you're with us. To do that, we are implementing some changes to our normal office policies to follow the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. Your health and wellness are our top priority.

Starting the week of May 11th, we will be back to seeing patients for routine dental care. That means we can finally start getting you back on track with cleanings, whitening, and Invisalign. As healthcare providers, that also means we will have to take extra precautions to ensure your safety. We want you to love your visit, and we will do everything we can to give you peace of mind so you can focus on the good stuff (the massage chairs, the Netflix, and the Dad jokes). The following are just some of our new office policies:

  • We are requesting that all of our new patients fill out your forms prior to your appointment. You can find these in the "Patient Resources" tab at the top of the page. Once you submit your information it will be safely stored in our system. This will limit the amount of time you spend in our reception area and keep patient to patient interactions to a minimum.
  • We love when you bring friends and family. Your people are our people. But for the time being we are requiring you to come alone to your visits. If you want or need to bring a guest with you, we would just ask that they wait in the car during your visit. We request that you continue to wear your face mask upon arrival, and limit your accompanying guest to 1, and only if they are essential to your care (e.g., a caregiver, translator).
  • There will be a touchless hand sanitizer dispenser at the front desk. Please use it when you arrive.
  • We have installed a medical grade air purification system.
  • We will be disinfecting all clinical and common areas that are contacted
  • We will be taking a quick forehead temperature on all patients and staff. If there are any special accommodations you need, please let us know prior to your visit so we can prepare. As always, we can't wait to see you, and we hope everyone is healthy and happy.

Note: If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or if you or those you are in close contact with have been exposed to COVID-19, contact our office and we will assist you with rescheduling your appointment for a later date to make sure you are free of COVID-19 symptoms. There will be no cancellation or rescheduling fees during this time. If you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to a country with outbreaks of COVID-19 or if you have been exposed to someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or quarantined as a precaution, wait 14 days before making an appointment to make sure you are free of COVID-19 symptoms.

Thank you for helping to flatten the curve, and we can't wait to see our community thrive again!

FAQ

About

How often do I need to visit the dentist?

This can be different for everyone. Most patients who are regularly seen will only need to come back twice a year (every six months) for routine check-ups and dental cleanings. If it has been a while since your last cleaning or if you have signs of gum disease, we’ll see you back sooner to stay on top of things.

Do you treat children?

Your family is our family. We treat children of all ages, and we want you and your family to have a single dental home. In the rare event that we need to refer for a specific procedure, we have an excellent network of pediatric dentists.

When should I take my child to the dentist for their first check-up?

It’s recommended we first see your child by their first birthday or six months after their first tooth is visible (whichever comes first). First visits are mostly about getting your child comfortable in the dentist's chair and educating you on home care. After that, we’ll see you every six months to stay on top of their development and keep them feeling comfortable and familiar in a dental setting.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

As soon as your appointment is scheduled online or over the phone, your new patient forms will be sent directly to you using the email you provided. Simply fill out the forms on your smartphone, computer, or tablet, and they are automatically added to your chart - it’s that easy. It even allows you to take pictures of your insurance card so we can do a complimentary benefits evaluation prior to your visit. So all you’ll need to bring with you to your visit is yourself, we’ll take care of the rest.

How long will my first appointment last?

Your first visit is all about getting to know you. We set aside 90 minutes for our new patient cleanings so we can make sure the appointment never feels rushed. We take digital x-rays and photos of your teeth, and we listen to what brought you to us. Your story matters, and we take the time to listen so we can best serve you.

How often should I change my toothbrush?

It’s recommended that you change your toothbrush (or toothbrush heads if you’re using an electric brush) every three months.

Do you make same-day appointments?

Always. Things happen, and we want you to know that we’ll be here for you when they do.

Where is your dental office located?

Our office is conveniently located at the intersection of Fairbanks Ave., Pennsylvania Ave., and Orange Ave. directly next to The Ravenous Pig. We are just blocks from Hannibal Square, Rollins College and Park Avenue. If you’re in the area, come say hi – we’re always happy to give an office tour and introduce you to our wonderful staff.

Where did you get your dental degree?

I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. During my years in practice, I’ve taken advanced continuing education courses in Invisalign, implant dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry.

Who is the best dentist in Winter Park, FL?

We were humbled to be honored by Orlando Family Magazine as a Top Dentist of 2020 in only our first year open. We were also nominated as “Best Dentist” in the “Best of Winter Park 2020”.
