3 Important Tips to Maintain Dental Health in a Pandemic

The office of DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is open once again! We are here to serve our patients, following CDC guidelines, and we want everyone to understand how to take better care of themselves for safety and good health. While we have put in an array of new procedures to keep our patients and staff safe, we must limit the number of patients we are able to see each day. Yet, we are still focused on providing the highest quality services that will help everyone enjoy good dental health.

Our team understands that it is particularly important to maintain dental health as well as a healthy immune system during the pandemic.

Here are three important tips for staying safe and maintaining good dental health throughout the pandemic and beyond:

  • Continue to brush and floss thoroughly: Dental health can offer clues about a person’s overall health. Brushing twice a day for two minutes each time is highly recommended, not only for good dental health but also for a healthy immune system, which is so important now.
  • Schedule a checkup and cleaning: We know it’s been a while since our patients have been able to schedule non-emergency appointments. Now is the time to get that all-important checkup and dental cleaning. Our professional dental team have taken all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone can get the dental treatment they need to continue maintaining good dental health.
  • Be a patient with patience: To ensure everyone’s safety and well-being, our staff will be allowing for more downtime between appointments, to promote social distancing and to provide more time for proper sanitation of our equipment. We have also removed hard-to-disinfect items, such as magazines, from our waiting room.

Dr. Jim and his staff are concerned about every patient well-being. We are truly dedicated to providing quality dental care in the safest environment.
