Dear Patients:

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. Please be patient with us as we all adapt to this new “normal”. 

For example:

· Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. 

· We ask that you wear a facemask in the office, if possible, but NO GLOVES.

· We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

· You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. 

· Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

· We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. 

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Keep Smiling!

Dr. Dowell and Team 

What to Expect on Your First Visit to Dowell Dental Group

Your smile is unique, and you need a unique blend of treatments to maintain optimal oral health. As your family’s general dentist, our doctors will listen to your concerns and custom design a treatment plan to resolve all areas of concern. Our caring and compassionate team will offer tips for home care, setting the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. With a wide array of general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and orthodontic services, we can deliver the exceptional results you deserve, often without sending you to outside practices for treatment.

Your First Visit

Your first visit will be catered to your unique needs! We don’t bully our patients into procedures with which they don’t feel familiar or comfortable. Our number-one priority is addressing your concerns. Our team here at  the Dowell Dental Group will ask you questions, so we can learn your reason for visiting us. The rest of your appointment will be developed according to your requests. It may include a comprehensive examination, including X-rays, periodontal analysis, an oral cancer screening, and treatment recommendations. If you’d like, your professional cleaning can be performed during this visit, as well.

Our progressive, fully digital practice has 5 convenient locations in Carrollton, Minerva and Dover. Call today to schedule your appointment or consultation. We look forward to bringing out the best in your smile.

We hope you never experience a dental emergency, but if you do, we’re here for you. Our Dowell Dental Group doctors are available around the clock to help in the event of an emergency. Please call our main line for more information.
