To our Friends and Families of Affiliated Dental Specialists:
In these troubling and uncertain times our hope is that you and your family are safe and healthy. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, your dental team is making adjustments to keep you safe. Our office unfortunately will be unable to see you for any regular appointments through the month of April. This may change but Pediatric and Orthodontic appointments are all canceled unless it is an emergency.
We continue to be available for emergencies during this shelter at home period and are making plans to continue your treatment as soon as possible. Our hope is to open our schedule as soon as we can and look forward to seeing you!
Please stay in touch via social media and our website.
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for announcements regarding your care.
Thank you for your understanding, patience, and flexibility during this unprecedented time. Our Affiliated family wishes you well. Stay healthy and please brush and floss your teeth!!!

First Dental Checkup

Well-Baby Checkup 2020

Dr. Orbon, Dr. Maddox and Dr. Paula suggest that you bring your child in for a well-baby visit after the first tooth comes in, and no later than the first birthday.  The Doctor will check for cavities and any other problems, and will show you how to clean your child’s teeth properly and how to handle habits like thumb sucking.
Think of the appointment as a happy and fun experience.
