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.

Sincerely,

Dr. Porter and Team

Your Smile Must Be Healthy Before You Can Undergo Cosmetic Care

It is essential that the foundation of your smile is in good health before you begin cosmetic treatment. Your smile should be free of gum disease and decay. However, Dr. Porter provides comprehensive dental care at his practice so he can efficiently address any concerns.

While certain cosmetic procedures can treat oral health conditions such as cracks and dental misalignment, they may not always be sufficient. For instance, while Invisalign can straighten most patients' smiles, traditional orthodontics may be necessary for severe malocclusion. Likewise, porcelain veneers may not be recommended for a tooth that is significantly weakened by damage. Instead, a porcelain dental crown or even a dental implant may be the best option. During your dentistry consultation, Dr. Porter will perform an in-depth evaluation of your oral health and recommend the best treatment for your needs and goals. 

We Make It Possible to Afford the Smile You Deserve

Since insurance does not typically cover this type of dentistry, many patients are worried that it is a luxury they cannot afford. However, that is not the case. Several financing options can be applied to your treatment to reduce your overall out-of-pocket cost. In addition to CareCredit®, we also offer in-house financing. Additionally, Dr. Porter can tailor treatment to suit your budget, from more cost-effective materials to an alternative procedure.
