Coronavirus update: 3/18/2020


Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply 
committed to keeping everyone safe.
In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily  close our practice until further notice. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance  on social separation. If you have an appointment scheduled with us this week, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.
We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the
 situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.
Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and
our community in mind.
We wish all of you continued health and strength during this challenging time.

    I just moved to the area and needed a new dentist and found Dr. Alston. I have been to her twice so far and it has been a great experience.
