Our Covid-19 Safety Measures

We are following advice and guidance from the CDC, State of MI OSHA and the Michigan Dental Association to keep you, our other patients and our staff safe from infection.

Our safety protocols include:

  • We will ask you screening questions during confirmation for your appointment and before we begin care.
  • We will continue to follow CDC and Michigan Dental Association guidelines and require all patients, visitors and staff to wear a mask inside our office.
  • We will be employing different clinical techniques and tools to reduce the production and spread of aerosols during your dental care. For some of our patients these techniques will not be new. We will continue to use air filtration in all rooms.
  • Our dentists, dental assistants and hygienists will continue to wear extra personal protective equipment including face shields and gowns.
  • You will be asked to report any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 to our office within 14 days of your visit.

Teaching St. Johns Area Students about Dental Health

A student’s thank you note illustrating Dr. Nick’s demonstration of how to properly brush using our very own “Ally the Alligator.”

This month both Dr. Nick and Dr. Jonathan were able to visit area classrooms and teach children about taking care of their teeth. Doctors discussed with the children how nutrition can affect dental health and gave the students tips on how to care for their teeth, including brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing. Thank you to Mrs. Casaletto’s Riley Kindergartners, Mrs. Daman’s St. Joe Bekindergartners and to St. Johns Little Wings/Adventure Club for having us!
