Do You Want Your Dream Smile this Christmas? Here Are Some Tips

Christmas is a bright time of year, especially because of the countless Christmas lights and the spotless snow. To make the season even brighter, you need a pristine smile. Having a bright and brilliant smile will help you have the confidence you need to talk, laugh and smile while you open your gifts and go to family parties.

To help you achieve the smile of your dreams this holiday season, our Paul R. Stanovick, DDS dental team encourages you to do the following things:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. It’s also recommended to floss your smile and rinse your mouth at least once a day. In addition to brushing, flossing and rinsing, you need to visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup. So if you’re due for your professional dental cleaning, schedule an appointment now.

-Take advantage of teeth whitening: For a stunning and beautiful smile this holiday season, take advantage of teeth whitening. There are many treatments available, but if you want a beneficial and successful treatment, talk to your dentist about a professional whitening treatment.

-Don’t open your presents with your teeth: Using your teeth as tools could damage your smile more than you know. This is why we ask you to avoid opening your Christmas gifts with your teeth. Doing so can chip and fracture your teeth.

-Get a smile makeover: If you’re embarrassed by your smile, now is the time to consider a smile makeover. There are many treatments available that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams, like dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, dental veneers and more. Call our office now if you would like to know what we can do to enhance the appearance of your smile.

Keeping Ahead of COVID-19

Providing a safe environment for treatment and control for infectious disease is always a priority at Paul Stanovick DDS. Our expansive reception area and large outdoor deck provides space to easily support regulations surrounding social distancing. The treatment rooms provide an extra layer of protection as they are sanitized between each patient and provide clean air through air purifiers located in each room. We encourage that all patients schedule for their essential or ongoing treatment. Proactively treating your dental needs will benefit both your health and reduce the need for corrective treatment over time. We do ask that any high-risk patients postpone any elective dental treatment at this time. You will see some changes during your next appointment as we have added precautions to protect patients and staff. All patients will be asked to fill out a COVID-19 screening form as well as have their temperature taken. You will be asked to enter the building with use of facial protection and asked to wear it until you are in the treatment room. Hand sanitizer is also available throughout the whole building for your use. You may notice that our magazine and children’s books have been removed from the reception area as they are harder to disinfect. We have installed plexiglass around our front reception area for added distancing between front staff and patients waiting for appointments. Air purifiers have been placed in every operatory with two larger purifiers in the front and back of the office. We have provided face shields, lab jackets and barrier gowns for all clinical staff. Our hours of operation will still remain Monday -Friday 8am-5pm. We are trying our best to re-appoint patients that missed March 2020 & April 2020 dental appointments. We are looking forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about treatment and the safety precautions we are taking here at the practice. If you would like to make an appointment you can give us a call or text 804.781.1919. Thank you for your patience during these changing times and for your trust in us with taking care of your dental needs. Sincerely, Dr. Paul Stanovick, Dr. Brant Stanovick, and Staff.
