Is It Safe to go to the Dentist during Covid?

During these uncertain times, it seems that every step we take must be fully calculated in order to maintain the health of both ourselves and those around us.

While we have made changes in almost every aspect of our lives (grocery shopping, working, communicating with friends and family), one thing that can not be done through the computer or phone is attending the dentist for routine check ups or emergency visits.

The question that is sure to be on the tip of your tongue is: is it safe to go to the dentist during the coronavirus pandemic?

The answer? Absolutely, thanks to the precautions and dedication of our team of dental professionals here at Oakton Dental Center.
