Whether you want to schedule a dental cleaning, plan restorative care or take care of an emergency, call your dentist’s office to make an appointment and learn about the new safety protocols.

Here are some helpful questions to ask your dentist:

  • How quickly can I get an appointment in your office?
  • What changes have you made at the dental location that would limit the transmission of COVID-19?
  • Are there any dental procedures that I should wait to address?
  • Is the dental practice operating with special business hours?
