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

Dr. Porter is a wonderful dentist. I have been going to him for the last 8 years. Dr. Porter and his staff have always explained all procedures or courses of treatment, so I know what needs to be done. He has a machine which makes crowns right in the office so you don't have to come back! I also like that they start at 7:00 am and I have come many times before work. The staff is always very friendly.

Cleanings and Exams

Tartar, tooth decay, and other dental issues can easily develop unnoticed even for those with the best oral hygiene practices. Regular dental cleanings and exams eliminate tartar and allow your dentist to catch any issues that may surface in the earliest stages, when they are easiest and most affordable to treat. This benefits your overall health, as the bacteria in plaque and tarter can cause gum disease, which has been linked to heart disease and other serious health conditions. Dental sealants can be applied to prevent decay, and fluoride treatments can help protect teeth against acid and bacteria. This is also a good time to discuss any oral issues or cosmetic dentistry questions you may have with Dr. Porter.

Oral Cancer Screening

Identifying any signs of oral cancer early is essential to your well-being. It is recommended that patients are screened annually for oral cancer. Unlike most other oral health issues, cancer symptoms may not be noticeable until the disease has progressed. Catching oral cancer early can often prevent the cancer from spreading. Dr. Porter can conduct a visual oral cancer screening at your next visit to ensure your health is in good standing.

Cutting-Edge  Technology

To provide the finest dental care to his patients, Dr. Porter uses the highest-quality materials and the latest technology. Breakthroughs in modern dentistry such as dental implants offer more durable, natural-looking results than ever before. Other tools, like diode lasers, improve your overall health while greatly reducing treatment and recovery times.
