Dental Care and COVID19: What You Should Know

Taking care of your oral health is very important, and regular visits to a dentist, combined with good oral habits, keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. Bao Nguyen, DDS and Michael Florman, DDS are highly skilled and compassionate dentists who provide a full range of dental care services in their Huntington Beach and Santa Ana, California, offices. 

Local, caring dental team

At Morning Dental, our purpose is to support you in your oral health by providing high quality professional dental services in a safe, supportive, and comfortable environment. We know that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a huge effect on the lives of our staff and our patients. We want you to know that we are committed to doing everything we can to keep everyone safe during this time while providing the best care possible. 

Right from the beginning of the pandemic, we have been seeking guidance from local, state, and national health authorities, including the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and professional organizations such as the American Dental Association. We have been following their requirements and recommendations for how we can safely operate our dental office during the pandemic. 

Our top priority is the safety and health of both our staff and our patients, and we are proceeding as carefully as we can. We know that all our patients rely on us to provide quality dental services, and we want to provide those services in the safest and most comfortable way possible. 

New procedures and sanitation protocols

We are continually examining our procedures in order to provide the greatest safety for our staff and patients. We understand this may create some anxiety and confusion, but we are doing it so that we can keep you safe. We are here to answer any questions you have, and provide you with the best guidance along the way. 

We will comply with any mandates by authorities to temporarily close our clinic if needed. When we are permitted to be open, we are instituting a number of measures to prevent any transmission of the virus between our patients and staff. 

These safety measures include social distancing of a minimum of six feet between people when possible, and wearing masks and gloves. Although careful cleaning of our clinic has always been a top priority, we are now taking extra cleaning precautions to ensure that all surfaces that are touched are thoroughly disinfected on a regular schedule.  

We are in touch with all patients to let them know our current status and to communicate anything you need to do in order to comply with new procedures. Since this is a rapidly changing situation, we will continue to keep our patients informed along the way. 

If you have questions about the status of an upcoming appointment, or have other concerns, call our Santa Ana or Huntington Beach office, or use our online appointment booking tool.
