Now that San Mateo County is under the regional shelter-in-place order, we wanted to inform you that we will be remaining open. We are permitted to continue serving you under enhanced infection control guidelines, because dentistry is considered an essential service that is important to your overall health.
Dental Care is Vital to Your Overall Health
According to the American Dental Association, “Oral health is integral to overall health — staying well often depends on having access to health care, which includes dental treatment.” From gum disease, cancer, and diabetes, many diseases are interconnected with your oral health and hygiene. Coming in for your regular check-ups and cleanings are vital to keeping your body and your mouth healthy.
The dental health of American adults and children are currently already dire. In the United States, 40% of children will have tooth decay by the time they are in sixth grade and 50% of adults currently have some form of gum disease. If left unchecked, these diseases can lead to jaw bone loss and tooth loss. The good news is that these common diseases are largely preventable and manageable. In addition to regular brushing and cleanings, visiting your dentist regularly is an essential part of maintaining the health of your smile, and should not be neglected.
End of the Year Insurance Reminder
In fact most dental insurances recognize the importance of check-ups and many cover up to 2 cleanings and exams every year. Most insurance benefits will expire in less than 2 week, before it resets for the New year. These are benefits that you’ve already paid for! If you haven’t used up your dental insurance benefits including any funds left in your Flex Spending Account, schedule today before it’s too late.
Have We Are Keeping You Better Protected During COVID
Dentists have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to infection control. According to a survey of 2,000 dentists, that was taken after the initial shelter-in-place order was lifted in June, 99.1% of dentists reported no instances of COVID-19 infections.
Your health and safety has always been our top concern. In response to the pandemic, we’ve implemented enhanced infection control guidelines determined by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to make your next visit safer for you and our staff.
Watch our video below that demonstrates all the steps we’ve taken to make your next visit safer and more comfortable:
