Hygiene and safety protocols implemented at Downtown Dental
We are very serious about covid-19 and have installed new precautions to help our patients and staff to stay safe.

We now have a virtual waiting room. When individuals arrive, they call us. We then give you the green light to come up so that there are not many patients waiting.

We take your temperature at the door and ask you specific questions related to covid-19: whether you have had any symptoms such as fever, loss of smell, loss of taste, etc.

In addition to the screening at the door, we will also have you do a pre-procedure rinse, and you wear a mask when walking through the office.

We offer hand sanitizer, and there are washing stations in every operatory so you can wash your hands.

We also thoroughly disinfect every room with hospital grade disinfectant. We spray the room with strong disinfectant, let it sit for 10 mins and wipe it down twice and between patients.

All of our instruments are sterilized in the autoclave. All of the transactions that happen are also done inside the operatories to minimize patient interactions.

Safety and hygiene measures to protect staff and patients including sterilizing all instruments; thoroughly disinfecting rooms; using air filters and Personal Protective Equipment like face shields, masks, gowns, gloves, and eyewear. These measures have helped us get ready to serve you since we opened. For instance, we have resumed dental cleanings with proper protection measures in place for patients and employees.

In the meantime, we advise you to focus on your oral health at home as proper gum health can play a major role in keeping flu- and other viruses at bay. It has been found that common oral bacteria linked to gum disease can suppress immunity, increasing a person’s susceptibility to cold and flu viruses. The benefits of oral intervention to improve patients’ respiratory health have been proven time and again.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones during these difficult times.

Stay safe; stay healthy!

Success Stories

I actually owe a debt to Downtown Dental because they caught my oral cancer. I went to them because I had a bump on my tongue and thankfully they ordered a biopsy immediately (same day). The staff has been wonderful to me (even sending me a get well card during my cancer treatment). They do great work - the crowns are made in the office to save you time - and they are very upfront on pricing. You know exactly what you will pay. They are also very flexible on appointments. And they validate parking! They also have taken COVID precautions very seriously. Very professional and well-organized. Highly recommend them.
The staff here on its own deserves the five stars. Everyone is so friendly and take there time to get to know you as a patient. There very easy to work with on what’s best for you in the long run with insurance and dental care. On top of them making you feel comfortable, you can tell that they actually care about you and your dental health. The parking is also super easy and they validate so you don’t have to pay. I’d highly recommend coming here!
I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
