Dear Dolan Dental family and friends,

As the world begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, one question that we are often asked is “Do you think it’s safe to go to the Dentist?” Our immediate answer is a resounding, “YES!”

Dental offices are one of the SAFEST places you can be. Dentistry is a profession of obsessive-compulsive cleaners. Dental treatment rooms are cleaned with bactericidal and virucidal cleaners before & after each patient visit. We utilize barrier protection to prevent germs from spreading when we touch things. All instruments are heat sterilized and used only on you before they are sterilized again. In addition to utilizing many disposable products, we wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the safety of our patients.
