NEW SAFETY MEASURES



•  Our waiting room is closed to help ensure patients maintain a safe social distance. Please call or text Marlee at 360-734-2822 when you arrive. We will take patients directly back to treatment rooms to ensure safe physical distancing.
•  As always, treatment rooms and equipment are disinfected before and after every patient. Instruments are cleaned, then sterilized with steam.
•  We are conducting paperless pre-visit screenings for all patients with upcoming appointments.
•  Our staff are up-to-speed on COVID-19 symptoms and utilize recommended Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
•  We will meet you outside where your temperature will be taken prior to being brought into the building. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or other COVID-19 symptom your appointment will be rescheduled.
•  Only patients, or patients plus one critical caregiver, are allowed into an appointment.
•  Please wear a mask to your appointment, and leave it on until you are in the treatment room. If you don't have a mask, we will provide one.
•  We have implemented digital tools for check-in as well as contactless payment methods to reduce germ spread via clipboards, pens, and money.
•  We've added time between appointments to allow for sanitizing and to keep patients apart from one another to avoid high volume or density.
•  Any patients or staff who were diagnosed with COVID-19 must have an all-clear notification from their physician before entering our facility.
•  We ask that all patients use the hand sanitizer provided at the front door upon entering. It will also be available in other areas of the office.


As always, our main concern is the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at any time.
Tooth Extraction
An extraction is the permanent removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Teeth may need to be removed for many reasons:

• Broken or badly decayed
• Abscessed (infected)
• Overcrowded teeth removed for orthodontic treatment
• Impacted wisdom teeth
• Severe gum disease<

There are two major categories of extraction: routine simple extractions and surgical extractions.

Routine Simple Extraction
A routine simple extraction is usually performed in our office under local anesthetic. This applies to a tooth that is fully visible in the mouth and can be easily grasped by forceps. In some cases, depending on location of the tooth or a patient's health history, even a simple extraction may need a referral to the oral surgeon.

Surgical Extractions (Wisdom Teeth)
A surgical extraction is done by an oral surgeon under some level of sedation. This applies to impacted teeth, teeth that are badly broken down or difficult to extract, most wisdom teeth, and when extracting multiple teeth.
