Since there isn’t currently a cure for the Coronavirus, the effort to flatten the local curve is in place throughout Dallas and Fort Worth. While most people stay indoors and many businesses close for the time being, there are still essential needs that must be met. For businesses that remain open during shelter in place mandates, attention to detail and how they approach their services is essential.

FastNewSmile® is one such business that is still open for essential services and is dedicated to providing the best care in a sterile environment. Here is even more information about how we are saving smiles and promoting general health during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Emergency Dental Services

While we usually schedule dental implant appointments, the team at FastNewSmile® understands that there may be some emergency dental needs that can’t be met by the standard dentist right now.

We are pleased to offer our help with our emergency dental services at our Fort Worth and Dallas locations. Our socially distant screening process helps us identify true needs and allows the operation of services like:

  • Emergency tooth extraction
  • Root tip extraction
  • Failing dental implants
  • Infection
  • Abscessed teeth

Following Essential Guidelines

The development of the coronavirus pandemic changes on what seems like a daily basis. We’re here to meet every change head-on and follow the essential safety guidelines put in place by the CDC and WHO.

When you come in for a visit with FastNewSmile®, you’re guaranteed that we are putting our best practices in place for our patient’s safety. Our biggest goal with curbing this disease is being proactive to the possibilities of infection. This means that we don’t let our staff work a shift if they are feeling ill or presenting any symptoms of sickness.

We also take every precaution and pre-screen our patients to ensure that they aren’t sick or at high risk of obtaining COVID-19.

Equipment Sterilization

Not only does our staff follow a strict hygiene and hand-washing policy, but we also keep our office and equipment sterile for every patient we help.

We thoroughly clean each piece of equipment between patients and disinfect key aspects of our offices that include:

  • Doorknobs
  • Countertops
  • Lightswitches
  • Office and waiting room furniture
  • Bathrooms

Remember, we’re always here if you need us.
