We have missed you!
On Monday May 4th we will begin reopening our practice so we can treat the dental needs of our patients. After consulting with the American Dental Association and the Virginia Dental Association we will be scheduling patients for routine dental hygiene appointments as well as restorative treatment appointments. You will notice some changes in our office that we have made to insure that our patients and staff stay safe and healthy.
When scheduling and confirming appointments we will ask you a few screening questions about your current health, recent travels, and recent contacts with anyone who has been sick.
Starting Monday we will ask patients to remain in their vehicles and call us to check in for their appointments. We will come out to the front door to get you and bring you back to our treatment areas. Also we will only allow patients being treated to enter our building, so any other friends or family members will need to wait in their vehicles.
Inside our office we will make efforts to maintain separation between patients, and you will notice that our office staff will be wearing masks and glasses. We will discuss other modifications to our treatment procedures when you are in the office.
This Covid-19 pandemic has caused us all to make many changes to our routines, and we appreciate your patience with us as we modify our means of treating your dental needs in the safest possible manner. If you have any questions please call to ask. We are here to help and look forward to seeing you in our office soon.
So Many Blessings!
As you prepare for the upcoming Thanksgiving holidays be sure to stop and reflect on life's many blessings. Yes, eating plates full of food is a 'Turkey Day' tradition; however, spending time with friends and loved ones will leave a lifetime of memories.
We are very thankful for our wonderful family of patients who brighten our days throughout the year. Also we are thankful for such a hard working and loving dental team, and a harmonious work environment. Thanks Dr R!
In celebration of the Thanksgiving Holiday our office will be closing Tuesday November 26 at 4:30pm and will reopen Monday December 2 at 8:00am.
We wish for you a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday!
At the first-ever Players Weekend in August 2017, Major League Baseball players wore jerseys with their nicknames on the back. One player — Cleveland Indians shortstop, Francisco Lindor — picked the perfect moniker to express his cheerful, fun-loving nature: “Mr. Smile.” And Lindor gave fans plenty to smile about when he belted a 2-run homer into the stands while wearing his new jersey!
Lindor has explained that he believes smiling is an important part of connecting with fans and teammates alike: “I’ve never been a fan of the guy that makes a great play and then acts like he’s done it 10,000 times — smile, man! We’ve got to enjoy the game.”
We think Lindor is right: Smiling is a great way to generate good will. And it feels great too… as long as you have a smile that’s healthy, and that looks as good as you want it to. But what if you don’t? Here are some things we can do at the dental office to help you enjoy smiling again:
Routine Professional Cleanings & Exams. This is a great place to start on the road toward a healthy, beautiful smile. Even if you are conscientious about brushing and flossing at home, you won’t be able to remove all of the disease-causing dental plaque that can hide beneath the gum line, especially if it has hardened into tartar, but we can do it easily in the office. Then, after a thorough dental exam, we can identify any problems that may be affecting your ability to smile freely, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or cosmetic dental issues.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments. If your oral health is good but your smile is not as bright as you’d like it to be, we can discuss a number of cosmetic dental treatments that can help. These range from conservative procedures such as professional teeth whitening and bonding to more dramatic procedures like porcelain veneers or crowns.
Tooth Replacement. Many people hide their smiles because they are embarrassed by a gap from a missing tooth. That’s a shame, because there are several excellent tooth-replacement options in a variety of price ranges. These include partial and full dentures, bridgework, and dental implants. So don’t let a missing tooth stop you from being Mr. (or Ms.) Smile!
If you’d like more information about oral health or cosmetic dentistry, please contact us or schedule an appointment for a consultation. You can also learn more by reading the Dear Doctor magazine articles “Beautiful Smiles by Design” and “The Impact of a Smile Makeover.”
Starting A Little Bit Early...
The celebration for Dr. Reynolds' birthday has already started a week early! Our Business Office Manager Rebecca has amazing baking talents, and brought one of her creations to the office today. Dr. Reynolds says this is the best cake he has ever eaten, but says it's a Party Foul to surprise him a week early!
Thanks Rebecca and staff for the delicious cake and week-long Birthday wishes!
A new routine begins!
By now just about every student has started back to school after an awesome summer break. Dr. Reynolds was especially excited to have an end-of-summer visit by his brother and nieces who stopped by on their way home to Northern Virginia.
We wish all of our patients, students and teachers, a happy and successful school year! Work hard and make everyone proud. Oh, and don't forget to brush and floss!!
