Covid - 19 Update

     

Davis Dentistry will resume practice operations in compliance with relevant Executive Orders on Monday May 4th. We will continue to employ the enhanced cleaning and infection control protocols we implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We want to provide our patients and team members with the safest possible healthcare environment.

Our practice will be screening all patients and visitors to our offices. At Davis Dentistry team member will ask each patient/visitor a few travel-related and health screening questions, both prior to their appointment and upon arrival in our office; patients’ and visitors’ temperatures will be checked with a temporal thermometer. We are asking all patients to arrive 5 min. prior to their scheduled appointment. Patients who are at high risk for COVID-19, as determined by our office, will likely have their visit rescheduled. If you’re not feeling well, please contact us to reschedule, whenever possible, in advance of your visit.

All team members will be surveyed daily to ensure adherence with social distancing standards and status of their health. All team members will be in masks (or scarves for non-clinical team members). Importantly, all personnel in our offices will complete COVID-19 testing with the IGG antibody test as soon as we receive our supply of test kits (within 2 weeks).  The IGG test determines both the acute presence of the virus and whether our team members were exposed to COVID-19 previously.

Additionally, to reduce the risk of transmission to our patients and team members, as well as their families, the office has installed 4 very powerful HEPA h13 air filters.  These filters will remove all bacteria, viruses and VOCS down to the .3 microns keeping our working environment safe!

We appreciate your support of these infection control measures.  Your oral health is vital to your overall wellness and your ability to resist the impact of COVID-19, so we encourage you, if healthy, to maintain your regularly scheduled hygiene appointments with Dr. Davis and our practice. 

In good health,


Dr. Davis and Team

What Can You Expect at Your First Dental Appointment?

There are four main goals that Dr. Mark Davis has for your first dental appointment.

First, we ask that you give us a complete medical history, including a list of your current medications. Different conditions and different medications may require different treatment options for your future dental appointments, such as pre-medicating for certain conditions or the use of non-latex materials. While Dr. Mark Davis treats every patient with the same level of respect, we also will treat you as an individual with detailed attention to your specific needs and concerns.

Second, we will take a “full series” of radiographs, or “x-rays.” Even with the most thorough visual exam, Dr. Mark Davis can only see 25% of your tooth’s structure. As these pictures show, a tooth may appear to be healthy when you look at it, but the x-ray shows decay on the tooth that requires treatment. We have many patients who travel between multiple homes, and with our digital technology, we can easily forward any x-rays that we take to your other dental providers.

Third, you will have a comprehensive exam by Dr. Mark Davis. Not only will he look at the appearance of your teeth, he will also look at the function of your teeth, the wear of your teeth, your temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), and he will do a visual screening for oral cancer. In addition, the depths of the periodontal pockets around your teeth will be noted in your digital chart (“perio probing”). In order to discuss any areas of concern to Dr. Mark Davis or to explain answers to any questions that you may have, we may take digital photographs of your mouth. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words!

Fourth, our hygienists will “clean” your teeth. This part of your appointment will start with taking measurements and your gum and bone levels. Next, all of the plaque and tartar on your teeth will be removed, and then your teeth will be polished for that sparkly, shiny smile that you want!

And, of course, Dr. Mark Davis and his team members will be happy to answer any questions that you may have at any time.
