Take Advantage of Summertime by Getting Your Families Checkups

Welcome to the dental practice of Paul R. Stanovick, DDS, where Drs. Paul and Brant Stanovick are pleased to provide comprehensive, family-friendly dentistry for our patients in Mechanicsville, Virginia, and the neighboring communities. While summer is typically viewed as a time when many families choose to vacation and relax from the daily demands of the school-year routine, it is also a perfect time to be seen for routine dental cleanings and checkups for you and your family.

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that patients who have routine six-month dental cleanings and exams benefit from improved oral health. Not only do these visits help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath, but they can help lower the risk for certain diseases such as heart disease and stroke. Why is six months the recommended time period for dental checkups? Well, during a six-month period, tartar build up will require a professional dental cleaning to remove it. In addition to cleaning those pearly whites, we also check to make sure the teeth and gums are healthy, and check for any other oral health anomalies.

So, if you like to plan ahead of end-of-year dental work to be done, or just want to take advantage of this summer season to get necessary dental work done, come on in and see Drs. Paul and Brant Stanovick in Mechanicsville, Virginia now.  You can reach our caring dental team by calling 804-781-1919 today!

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.
