Coronavirus Update From Your Dentist

coronavirus 1Dear Valued Patient,

The foundation of our dental practice is our long-term, honest, and trusting relationship with you, our patient. Our teams work hard on every visit to provide a clean, safe and welcoming environment where you can feel comfortable and appreciated. Every member of our team has been trained to ensure our facility exceed expectations on cleanliness and sterilization.

Our office is open and we are available to see you and your family. We understand and are aware, with all the news on the coronavirus(COVID-19), some of you might be nervous or have concerns about a visit to the dentist, at this time. We wanted to share with you what we are doing to provide an environment that is safe and allows you to continue with your appointments as scheduled:

  • We have taken a proactive stance since the beginning to be very transparent and forward-facing with communication with our teams and have thoughtfully followed WHO(World Health Organization) and CDC(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) best practices
  • We have doubled our already stringent guidelines on cleaning, sterilizing and disinfecting all common and patient areas
  • We have asked any employee or patient who is not feeling well or showing any sign/symptoms to stay home

Some additional steps we would like to reinforce and recommend for your continued health and to prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses include:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Consider alternatives to shaking hands.
  • Unless you are sick with cough, sneezing and fever, it is not advised to wear a mask.

 With so many news stories, it’s understandable to be concerned about the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Please know that the precautions our dentist/team already take every day to prevent the spread of infection in his or her practice also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you are ill with flu-like symptoms, you should reschedule your appointment.

If you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVID-19 (China, Italy, Iran, South Korea) or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution, wait 14 days until you see your dentist to make sure you have not caught the coronavirus. 

If you are healthy, there’s no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment.

It’s important to know that the majority of people infected with the coronavirus experience flu-like symptoms and then recover. Most people do not develop serious respiratory complications. 

Visit the CDC’s website for the latest information on COVID-19.

The safety and well-being of our patients and teams will remain paramount for our organization. If you have any additional questions or concerns please call us directly and speak to any of our trusted teammates or providers.

Best, 

The Team of Dr. Patel & Dr. Corbett

 

Spring Cleaning For Your Mouth…

flossing

When we think about spring we often associate it with “spring cleaning”. It is the perfect season to clean your home, refresh your space and start new with healthy habits/lifestyle. However, aside from cleaning and decluttering your home, you can also put priority in cleaning up your oral health. Below are some tips to make spring cleaning your mouth easy this time of year as well as save your teeth from any future harm…

Floss. In addition to regular brushing, flossing your teeth a couple minutes a day allows you to deep clean your mouth and remove harmful bacteria. The bacteria filled debris can lead to infection and an unhealthy smile.

Replace dental equipment. Replacing and investing in a new toothbrush can allow you to get even more cleaning power in your mouth. Also, opting for an electric toothbrush can impact your cleaning routine positively, by removing debris efficiently and with less effort.

Brush your teeth. It might sound redundant, but making sure to brush your teeth multiple times a day will save your mouth in the long run. Don’t forget to remember your tongue, inside of your cheeks and the roof of your mouth when brushing, as these areas tend to house bad bacteria. Finish by rinsing your mouth with mouthwash to ensure good breath and a clean smile.

Check-ups. Having your dentist clean and inspect your mouth at least twice a year is vital to your oral health. Your dentist will not only clean your teeth, but check for any changes in your mouth, gum disease, cavities, etc. Your dentist can also seal your teeth, protecting them from any plaque, tartar and bacteria build-up.

Your Dental Benefits Expire December 31st!

waste insurance

This year has flown right by, and 2020 is right around the corner. And in the bustle of election season and the holidays, you may have forgotten to get that last dental appointment of the year on the books.

With the new year approaching, you’re probably wondering how the new calendar will affect your dental benefits. How do dental benefits work, when do dental benefits reset – these are questions you’ve probably been asking yourself lately.

Most Dental Benefits Will Expire

The short answer to these questions is no, benefits for most dental coverage plans will not carry over into the new year.

At this point of the calendar, many patients will have reached their deductible, which is how much they will need to pay out of pocket before dental benefits kick in. For most coverage plans, once the new year begins, that deductible will reset, putting you back to square one in terms of what you must pay for dental procedures before insurance covers the rest.

In other words, if you don’t use it, you lose it!

Avoid Potential Painful & Worsening Issues

Another reason to consider getting your appointments in before the new year is the threat of delayed treatment leading to more painful issues and worsening diagnoses.

If you’re experiencing an oral-related issue—even if it seems small now—it could develop into something more serious down the road. The last thing you’ll want to do is spend the holidays away from home with a bad toothache, or worse.

In addition to issues developing into more serious, painful problems that physically hurt you, the cost of treatment for said issues can rise as well. If we catch a problem early on, chances are you will avoid having to spend more money on a costly procedure or multiple return visits.

The time remaining to take advantage of your 2019 dental benefits is growing short, but there is still time to make an appointment. Our staff at Center For Advanced Dentistry will do whatever we can to get you onto the calendar – so schedule online or call us today at 770-623-8750.

Help Us Support #TeamTrees

We need your help!
Our office has partnered with #teamtrees, an initiative that was started to plant 20,000,000 trees by January 2020.
teamtreeslogo
Help Us Support #teamtrees on
December 14th-15th, 2019 right here in Atlanta!
Team Trees, also known as #TeamTrees, is a 2019 collaborative fundraising challenge aiming to plant 20 million trees by 2020. The initiative was started by American YouTubers MrBeast and Mark Rober, and is mostly supported by YouTubers. All donations will go to the Arbor Day Foundation, a tree-planting organization that pledges to plant one tree for every U.S. dollar donated. The trees are planned to be planted starting in January 2020 and ending “no later than December 2022”. It has been estimated that 20 million trees would take up 180 km2 (69 sq mi) of land.
On December 14-15th (date subject to change), we will be coming together with other locals to start making the pucks that hold the seedlings that drones will be dropping over green space right here in Atlanta.
If you and your families are interested in joining us, please let us know as soon as you can! Details will be announced in the days to come.
We need as many people helping as possible! If you cannot stay the entire day, no worries! They will be capturing footage of volunteers earlier in the day.

Zoom In For A Whiter Smile This Holiday Season!

Zoom in for Whiter Teeth

 

zoom before and after

I am  here to address a topic that I think is timely for the upcoming Holiday Season and that’s brought up frequently by my patients.

There are many grooming habits that have become mainstays in our population. From deodorant to hair removal, we operate in a society that incorporates hygiene and appearance into our daily routines. Now that achieving a whiter, brighter smile has become the new norm, many people ask me, “Which is the best method to achieve and maintain a fresh, clean smile?”

I’ve researched various options and of course, as a dentist, many companies try to engage me in offering their products. But the one I feel is not only the safest, but the most effective and beneficial to my patients is the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening System. The process is painless and occurs in one visit, generally in less than 90 minutes. Teeth appear six to ten shades whiter (and sometimes more), and patients notice the results instantly. Even if you have highly sensitive teeth, ask me about products that are formulated to minimize sensitivity so you, too, can enjoy the benefits of a whiter brighter smile.

The color of our teeth dull over time due to age, staining foods and drinks such as berries, wine, tea, and coffee, and the natural life cycle of our teeth. Zoom! ™ is the perfect choice to instantly restore a brighter smile, essentially reversing those effects through one quick and comfortable appointment. We also offer special products and tips to help you maintain your newly restored smile.

The Zoom™ whitening process is safe and effective, but I want to caution you about one thing—and that’s the drive home. Patients who have Zoom! are so astounded by their instant and noticeable results that they can’t resist admiring their smile in their car’s rear view mirror after they leave the office. I know you won’t be able to help yourself, but save those pearly whites for your smile after you arrive home safely! You’ll have a killer smile, but I can’t guarantee it’ll get you out of a traffic ticket for inattentive driving.

As always, happiness is spread with a smile, make yours one you are proud to share! Take advantage of our Smile Special! We are now offering $50 Off In Office Zoom Whitening! Offer expires 11/30/19! We also have other take home whitening options available! Make sure to ask us about them!

For more information about how we can make you brighter, visit our website at HiTechSmiles.com or call 770-623-8750.

P.S- The end of the year is fast approaching. Use your dental benefits before they expire December 31st– If you don’t use them, you lose them! Call now to schedule your appointment while we have appointments available at your convenience!
