Dear Valued Patient:

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 stay 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:

- 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 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. To make an appointment, please call our office at 704-364-9000. 

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

Nominate a Community Hero! By Dr. Bobby Porter on December 09, 2020


You may have noticed some posts we have made to recognize individuals at our office who have been doing amazing things in Charlotte, NC. So far, we have recognized four people who have gone above and beyond for their neighbors and strangers, and have devoted themselves to serving others. Everyone at Porter Dental Group has been inspired by these outstanding people, and we have felt a responsibility to share their stories during the past months. This holiday season has created new challenges for many, and our office is committed to focusing on the good in our city. 

With inspiration from our team, we created our Community Hero program to help formally recognize outstanding individuals in Charlotte, and share stories of people who truly embody the title. Our lives have been enriched by hearing first-hand accounts from these heroes, and we want to show our appreciation. We think good news and deeds deserve recognition, and we want to use our Facebook, Instagram, and website to help these messages reach others. We believe we have only reached the tip of the iceberg with Community Heroes, and we want our patients to have opportunities to make nominations for people they believe deserve special recognition. Amazing things are happening every day in our local communities, and we want to hear more about it!

To nominate someone you think deserves to be honored as a Community Hero, click the link at the bottom of this page and complete the form. Selected Community Heroes will be offered a free dental cleaning, x-rays, dental exam, and we will share their stories. We want to continue recognizing Community Heroes for years to come. We would love to hear what our patients think about our Community Hero program! We welcome you to reach us at, (704) 364-9000, or let us know at your next appointment.

If you missed any of our past community heroes, you can click their names to read more: Michelle Kruse,  Josh Meadows, Jenny Meadows, and Andrea Hinton.
