We have received many questions about the coronovirus and our practice. I wanted to let you know that we are taking aggressive, thorough, and comprehensive measures to keep our office COVID-19 free. In addition to the standard hygiene protocols established by the CDC, American Dental Association and OSHA, which even in normal times we follow and adhere to with vigilance, we are also screening our patients for travel and flu like symptoms while cleaning throughout the day all of our public spaces -- bathrooms, reception, front desk, door handles, etc.
As you know, our professional staff always wear masks, gloves, and protective coats when interacting with our patients and all our equipment is sterilized. All exam rooms are thoroughly cleaned between each patient visit. Nothing is more important than our patient's health and dental health and we will do everything in our power to make our office an ultra-low risk environment.
If you currently feel sick, please reschedule your dental appointment and call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.
Please also reschedule your appointment if, in the past two weeks, you have either been in close contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19, or have returned to the United States from an area affected by the coronavirus disease. Right now this list includes China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. However, the list of countries continues to change, so it’s a good idea to check this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for updates on the affected countries.
If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to call us.
Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
At Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our patients.
Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of decay, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at your dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and observing proper oral hygiene are strong indicators for oral health.
We’re not here to tell our patients to abstain from sugar all together. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you, just be sure and brush properly. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.
