Happy Fall, everyone! Even though fall has not officially begun, we are super excited to get our fall decorations up around the office. We love fall but more importantly, we love sweater weather season! We are happy to celebrate new additions to our office family! Both Betsy and Natalie welcomed new additions this month! We are wishing each of them lots of rest!
With school starting, we want to give our patients updates to scheduling and safety protocols during the flu season. During this time, we have after-school and Saturday appointments available for all of our students. Although there may be certain appointments that will need to be during a weekday morning, we will try our best to accommodate. We promise to do our best to meet your scheduling needs.
With COVID-19 cases going up once again and the start of flu season, we continue to take our safety protocols seriously. The dental environment is one of the safest when it comes to COVID-19 protocols. As a profession, we have always been obsessed with infection control. We have multiple hand sanitizing stations and air purifiers throughout the office. Our central HVAC system is also amplified with extra filtering for everyone’s safety. Please wear a mask when you come, regardless of your vaccination status. We are doing our best to ensure we are respecting everyone’s safety during this time. And, since masking up is still normal, now is the perfect time to straighten your teeth if you are self-conscious about treatment!
As we start getting closer to the holiday season, we will be excited to share all of our favorite traditions. But for now, we are excited for National Coffee Day on September 29th! Iced coffee seems to be a team favorite across the board in our office, even when it's super cold outside. However, we do want to caution all of our patients that drinking coffee often is not great when it comes to staining teeth. For those in treatment with Invisalign, remember to take aligners out when drinking and eating. For this reason, try to avoid sipping beverages throughout the day to limit the amount of time your aligners are out of your mouth.
We hope to see everyone soon and cannot wait to see everyone’s beautiful smiles!
