Office Visits at Lee Family Dental

MANDATORY GOVERNMENT CLOSURE

As of March 19, 2020 Governor Inslee issued a proclamation that dental offices are to immediately prohibit all treatment that requires use of personal protective equipment or PPE (masks, gloves, etc.) effective until May 18, 2020. This is due to a critical shortage of PPE for hospitals.

 

The exception to this is "any dental care related to the relief of pain and management of infection."

If you have a dental appointment scheduled with us between March 19th and May 18th is is unfortunately cancelled until further notice.

 

 We are doing our best to stay up to date on this changing situation while still providing care to those with true emergencies.  We will continue to update you with further changes to this Proclamation.

Even our office has experienced difficulty in ordering necessary PPE so we are taking this situation seriously by limiting use. 

 

Currently we will be taking calls and seeing true emergencies M-F from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. This is subject to change. Please call us to hear details on those changes.

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.

Lee Family Dental is your experienced  Bellingham, WA  Dentist . Call our office today to schedule your first appointment!

Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.

During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then, the doctor will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have. At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, checking your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:

  • Your completed patient information form
  • Your insurance card

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
