Are You Delaying Your Dental Visits?
As the number of Covid cases continues to decline in our area, we are hopeful that we are turning the corner on this pandemic.
Many of you have delayed coming in for your periodic appointments due to the obvious concerns regarding this virus and the pandemic. As a reminder, we reopened our dental office in June 2020, incorporating all of the preventive measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Dental Association.
Since then, we have experienced zero incidence of Covid directly related to our office. A common experience of dentists across the United States, this is due to our team and our profession strictly following health and safety guidelines. At Quince Orchard Dental Care, our pre-pandemic protocol (masks, gloves, face shields and disinfectants) have always been in place to protect our patients and team.
We are concerned for our patients who have postponed their regular dental checkups. Coping with the pandemic has been stressful, causing so many people to clench and grind their teeth. This extra pressure can lead to cracked and damaged teeth, infection and jaw issues. We don’t want that to happen to you.
It really is important to have your mouth checked on a regular basis to maintain good oral health and prevent any problems from worsening.
We invite you to schedule a checkup appointment with our office. If you intend to return, we look forward to seeing you soon. If you have been keeping up with your preventative care visits, thank you for your trust in our dental practice. Together, we can safeguard your health.
Wishing you well,
The Quince Orchard Dental Care Team
