Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! When you’re gazing at your partner across a candlelit dinner, you want your smile to sparkle. There’s still time to give your teeth some pampering before Friday the 14th! Read on to learn what we can do to help you love your smile.

Teeth Whitening

One of the quickest ways to enhance your smile is with professional teeth whitening. Here at Stono Dental Care, we offer two convenient and effective options:

  • Custom Trays offer a completely personalized whitening experience. Based on impressions, we’ll have custom trays made to fit your smile perfectly, minimizing or even eradicating the potential for gel leaks.
  • One-size trays are a quick, more low-cost option that also delivers safe and effective results. Just pick them up, along with the whitening agent, and you’re ready to go—no fittings required.

Other Cosmetic Services

While most other cosmetic services take more time to show results, let this be your motivation to get started on one or more of these fantastic improvements to your smile:

  • Dental Veneers are an attractive way to achieve a perfect smile.
  • Dental Implants are one of the most popular tooth restoration options around because of their natural look and feel. Once you have your implant installed, you’ll forget it’s not a real tooth.
  • We offer Invisalign® and Powerprox® here at our practice. Invisalign straightens your teeth using comfortable, clear aligners. Powerprox is a 6-month straightening technology. Both are great smile-changing treatments.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Stono Dental Care

The team here in Johns Island, South Carolina wishes you and your loved ones a delightful day, filled with lots of love! Remember, go easy on the candy hearts and chocolates. If you do indulge, have your toothbrush ready to polish up those pearly whites. And make sure you have your next cleaning exam on the books with us. If you don’t, it’s time to give us a call!

Senior and High-Risk Patient Hours 9 AM – 11 AM on Mondays and Thursdays

Over the next few weeks, we will slowly start to reopen our practice. As most of you know, most dental problems get worse overtime, and we want to treat dental issues before they become bigger problems. We want to ensure our patients that we are taking COVID-19 (and all infectious diseases) seriously and are adding extra precautions to protect you and our team.

We are offering special hours and accommodations for our senior and high-risk patients:

  1. Special hours: We are reserving 9 AM – 11 AM on Mondays and Thursdays for our seniors and high-risk patients.
  2. Mobile check-in: There will be no need for you to come into the waiting area. When you arrive, text 843-779-9096 or call 843-203-5429 to let us know that you are here. We will come to your car, bring you in the side door, and take you directly into a treatment room.
  3. First in room: You will be the first patient using the treatment room in at least 36 hours, since we are not normally open on the weekends or Wednesdays.
  4. Paperwork: Any paperwork that you need to complete will be sent to you via email or text so that you can complete it on your own device. We will also allow you to complete the paperwork in the treatment room using paper or a disinfected iPad.
5.
  5. Mask: If you do not have a mask, one will be given to you to enter and exit the office. Our team will keep masks on when we are within 6 feet of you. Since we will be wearing masks, please forgive us if it makes communication harder and please know that we are still smiling underneath.
  6. Closed rooms: Each of our treatment rooms are closed with walls and doors and have their own air return vent. Closed rooms are very effective at keeping potential diseases from spreading from room-to-room.
  7. Check-out: The check-out process will be performed in the treatment rooms. After you are finished, you will leave the office through the side door and avoid the waiting area.
  8. Additional screenings: We will be screening all patients and team members for travel, symptoms associated with COVID-19, and contact with anyone showing symptoms associated with COVID-19 or contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case. The temperatures of all patients and team members will be recorded.
  9. Mouth rinse: All patients will use a mouth rinse to destroy viruses and kill bacteria before treatment.
  10. Limit office traffic: We will require all non-essential families/friends to stay at home or wait in their vehicles during appointments.
  11. Infection control: We will continue our normal practice of following universal precautions, as we always do. This means after every patient, the room will be disinfected with chemicals that have been shown to be effective against the coronavirus in 30 seconds (Optim1), the instruments will be sterilized, and our team will continue to wear appropriate protective equipment such as mask and gloves.
  12. Addition cleaning: More frequent sanitation processes for the reception area and bathrooms.
  13. Suctions: As many of you know, we have always used special suctions. Not only do these suctions isolate the area being worked on and protect patient, they also prevent the spread of disease.
  14. Clean air: We have added additional air purification systems to our office.
  15. Stono Dental Care is taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our patients and team. Thank you for your patience and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

    Take care,
    
Andy Game, DMD, MBA
