COVID-19 Information for Our Parents

As dedicated healthcare professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. We have always followed the recommendations of OSHA and the CDC for infection control and will continue to do so.  However, we want everyone to be prepared for changes to the ‘new norm’ for the safety of our patients and staff.

What You Can Expect at Your Visit

  • Our goal is to keep patients, families, and staff safe and to eliminate as much unnecessary contact as possible.
  • Upon entering the clinical area, all patients and any accompanying parents, will have their temperatures taken with a forehead scanning thermometer. If any person has a temperature over 100.4 F they will be asked to reschedule. 
  • Our staff will be wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) throughout the dental experience.
  • Your child will still get a TREASURE, but it will be brand new and not chosen out of the machine.
  • If you have any questions or concerns for the doctor, billing coordinator, or any other staff member please do not hesitate to contact us and let us know. 

Before Your Visit

  • If you have new insurance information, please call our financial coordinator Jennifer at (352) 241-6333 prior to your appointment.
  • If your child or any other family member has any signs or symptoms of illness, such as fever, sore throat, cough, muscle aches, or any other flu-like symptoms please call and reschedule your family’s dental appointments. 
  • Should your child have an underlying health condition, we recommend you schedule the first or last appointment of the day or consider postponing treatment

In the pediatric dental world, you have no idea how hard it is to not hug our patients and greet them with a great big smile! But your child’s safety and the safety of our Team is our #1 priority.  We will still do everything in our power to make your child’s experience magical!  If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at (352) 241-6333 prior to your appointment.  If you have any special requests we will do our best to accommodate.☺
