WE ARE OPEN: Hello to you all!

We hope this message finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months. Gov. Gavin Newsom took an additional step to slow the transmission of COVID-19 by closing indoor operations for many business sectors throughout much of the state. At this time, these restrictions do not affect the provision of essential health care services, including dental care.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our infection control processes are in place so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. Our office follows and exceeds the recommendations made by the American Dental Association(ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), OSHA and California Dental Association(CDA).

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff:

We are grateful for every one of our patients. We have had to cancel over two months of appointments and we appreciate your patience as we try to reschedule and accommodate everyone. In the coming weeks we will be calling you to get you back into our schedule. If you have a dental emergency and need attention sooner give us a call to see where we can squeeze you into the schedule.

We look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends. Thank you for your trust and loyalty. Be well and safe.

Our dedicated and motivated team has one primary goal—your utmost comfort! We feel it’s important that you understand the treatment that you will be receiving so that you can relax during the procedure. Our staff is eager to answer any questions regarding your dental care or dental insurance. Please feel free to share with us your needs and concerns, as we all are here for you!

Our patients benefit from single-visit restorations including crowns, inlays & onlays, white fillings and veneers using a very high-tech piece of dental equipment called CEREC. If you are in need of a dental restoration, chances are CEREC can provide it in just one visit. CEREC technology allows us to digitally scan the area of your mouth where the dental restoration will be placed, designing a replacement restoration right there, and finally milling the final restoration during the same appointment.
