Our Disinfecting Policies to Protect You During the Coronavirus Season
We have always made sterilization and disinfection of our office a priority. That in itself protects you from possible disease transmission during this outbreak as well as any viral season. Here are the policies that we have in place:
- We are asking every patient to wash his or her hands in our presence in the treatment room. That is for at least 20 seconds using soap and water.
- Our staff and doctors wash their hands in the presence of the patient at the beginning of every visit.
- We are cleaning our instruments in two areas after treatment. One is by the assistants in the treatment room. The second is by our sterilization assistant in the sterilization room. That is done under 2.5X magnification.
- We are disinfecting all common areas such as door handles, knobs, public surfaces both in the treatment rooms and the reception room and front desk area, bathroom faucets, toilet handles, seats, etc. on a frequent basis throughout the day.
- We use new masks and gloves for every patient.
- We cover all surfaces, hoses, and electronics with plastic wrap. The plastic wrap is changed between patients.
- We encourage you as well as our staff to avoid touching our faces.
- If you are ill, please reschedule your appointment with us. We are sending any patient or staff member home who has symptoms of illness.
We are happy to answer any questions regarding our disinfection and sterilization policies and look forward to making every visit to our office safe, comfortable, and effective.

A very satisfied customer. Both my kids come here for their orthodontist needs, staff is amazing, very professional, and very friendly.
Dr. J is the best dentist I have ever had. He was one of the first to use 3d printing from laser scanned teeth to make inserts, instead of using amalgam or paste based fillers, almost 10 years ago.
Top of the line service with great doctors! The employees made the dreaded dental visit 100% pleasurable. I would recommend this dental office to anyone & everyone!
This place is AWESOME!Great staff, always friendly. Needless to say they also do great work!
I cant tell you how amazing the whole team there is!!!! I went in for wisdom teeth removal...it was terrifying for me personally and not only did the ladys in the front put my mind at to rest but so did the surgeon. Not to mention the surgeon! He's absolutely amazing!

Cleaning and Prevention
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Cosmetic Dentistry has been in demand due to the need of treating discolored, chipped or missing teeth. Many people have high standards when it comes to their teeth. We all strive for a beautiful, healthy and flawless smile.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the avoidance and alteration of irregular teeth. Orthodontics also practice in the diagnosis and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities.
Periodontal disease (periodontitis) is the gradual condition which results in the recession of the gum or jawbone, and ultimately tooth loss. Periodontal disease may lead to severe health problems in various parts of the body due to the toxins found in plaque. When the gum tissues become inflamed, the destructive results include the irritation of the gingiva (gum tissue). This in turn causes bacterial infection (gingivitis) that results in the damage of the underlying bone and gum tissue.
“Periodontics” refers to the dental department that focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal disease. These experts have completed additional years of dental training and specialize in maintaining the function, health, and aesthetics of the jawbone and tissues.
