We are quickly approaching completing our 4th month since the resumption of full time essential treatment...after 2 and 1/2 months of emergency care only. We continue to make your safety and health our number one priority. Our hygiene schedule has been reduced to allow for extra time to disinfect each operatory between patients. We continue to vigorously screen everyone through our COVID - 19 questionnaire, including all staff members, to minimize any potential exposures. Our staff meets daily to assess and mitigate any and all possible risks to our staff and patients. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about our new procedures and protocols designed to ensure everyone's safety. Thank you for your understanding and tolerance of the inconveniences these procedures may cause for us all.

CONGRATULATIONS, DR. TEAGUE!!

A former president of the North Carolina Dental Society, he has a lifetime of awards and service demonstrating his dedication.
