Prioritizing Our Patients' Health & Safety 

Dear patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
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. For example:
 
• If you are sick or concerned you might be sick, please cancel your appointment. You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last minute.
 
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. When you get to the office, you are asked to remain in your car and call our office number 972-412-5064. A staff member will come out to you and you will be asked those same screening questions again and have your temperature taken before entering the office.
 
• If you are a new patient, we would really appreciate you using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to your appointment.
 
• We will ask you to immediately wash your hands with soap and water when you enter the office.
 
• 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. There will also be very few chairs present to avoid crowds in the waiting room. Computers will have disposable covers and counter tops, door handles, waiting room chairs and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.
 
• 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 also ask that only the patient, and in necessary cases a legal guardian, enter the office. Older children and adults are requested to experience their appointments alone while family members remain in the car and/or waiting room.
 
• 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. To make an appointment, please call our office at 972-412-5064 or visit our website at www.mymouthdental.com.  
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Montoya and Team

Fluoride Treatments

Children and some adults are particularly susceptible to tooth decay, which can compromise teeth and be a hassle to address.

Fluoride protects teeth from erosion and, in turn, reduces the risk of cavities.

That sounds great! But how does it work?

How Fluoride Keeps Teeth Strong

Prevents Decay

By making teeth more resistant to the acids found in plaque, fluoride can protect you from cavities and reverse early decay.

Provides More Concentrated Treatment

Though fluoride is often found in toothpastes and mouth rinses, it is delivered at a higher concentration in professional gels, solutions, and varnishes

Protects Adults and Children Alike

While most often recommended for children, fluoride can benefit adults who are more vulnerable to cavities, including those with gum disease, dry mouth conditions, or restorations.

If You or Your Child are Prone to Cavities, You Have the Power to Fight Them

*According to research on children and adults published by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Why Pay for Preventive Care When I Can Treat a Cavity?

The cost of a typical fluoride application is about $30 to $50. In contrast, fillings generally cost about $90 to $250, and crowns about $500 to $2,500 per tooth. 

While a crown can take up to two weeks to fabricate and place, varnish takes only a few minutes to apply.

Choose Your Method of Delivery

Fluoride treatment comes in many forms. If you would prefer to avoid trays and gel, your dentist can use varnish. This is gently painted on the front, back, and top of teeth and will harden in seconds. The entire procedure takes no more than two minutes. Simply leave the varnish on for six hours (you can return to normal activities immediately), and remove it with a toothbrush later in the day.

Fluoride treatment is a quick and easy way to protect the health and longevity of your or your child’s smile. At such a low cost, it is a no-brainer! Talk to your dentist today to learn more.
