Patients must now present negative COVID-19 test results if undergoing aerosol generating procedures.

Patients undergoing aerosol-generating procedures who do not have negative COVID-19 test results available on the day of their appointments, will be required to participate in rapid COVID 19 screening before treatment.

There will be a $13 charge for the Rapid COVID-19 Screening. This charge will be added to your overall billing invoice.


Typical patient procedures that require rapid screening:

      • Fillings
      • Crowns
      • Sealants
      • Cleanings using special instruments (like a Cavitron)
