Upon strong recommendation of the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners, our office was closed from March 18, 2020 to May 17, 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We reopened on Monday, May 18, 2020. We ask for your patience and understanding as additional measures must be taken to protect our patients and staff from this ongoing threat. The following screening questionnaire will be used pre-appointment and at each dental visit to reduce the chances of treating infected patients. All employees will be screened daily using a similar questionnaire as well. We are following all American Dental Association and CDC recommendations for personal protective equipment and office/operatory disinfection. Rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to make your office visit a safe one.

Any other flu-like symptoms, such as gastrointestinal upset, headache
Have you/they experienced recent loss of taste or smell?
Are you/they in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients? Patients who are well but who have a sick family member at home with COVID-19 should consider postponing elective treatment.

diabetes or any auto-immune disorders?

Positive responses to any of these would likely indicate a deeper discussion with the dentist before proceeding with elective dental treatment.
