Just a reminder, we are open. We are continuing to follow the sanitizing protocols we established last year (see prior newsletters). You are still required to wear a mask when inside the office even if you are vaccinated, except when getting treatment (I do like to state the obvious).

As you can see, I am starting a blog, which will be not only about dentistry, but about the office, my team (The Ginger Snaps), and other random musings. I am hoping that I can make this entertaining and informative enough for people to want to read it. Or maybe provide some comic relief. Only time will tell if I will be writing this for an audience of one (my daughter) or an actual group of people.
I am open to topic suggestions, and please let me know if you like what you are reading. You can post your comments on our Facebook fan page (be gentle in your critiques, my ego isn’t huge). My writing style will be casual and possibly weird. So, while reading it, bear in mind that I tend to have a quirky sense of humor, and my intent is not to be insulting or belittling to anyone (unless you have something against gingers since I am a double-ginger; a redhead by birth and Ginger by name). Thank you for being a (potential) participant on this new adventure of mine!

We are all so excited about so many people getting vaccinated!!! ... read more »

We do numerous things to keep everyone safe: all of our regular pre-Covid infection control protocol plus our current Covid respiratory protocol (an hour between patients in every room plus cold fogging and disinfecting, HEPA filters, HVE’s for aerosols, closing doors during treatment,... read more »
I just 86'ed my first patient from my practice for refusing to wear a mask when in my office. He said it wasn’t a political but a personal choice and that he felt healthy and saw no point in wearing one. When I gave him a mask, he put it on but wrong; under his nose not over his nose.... read more »
