Dear valued patient:

In an effort to support national efforts to fight the COVID- 19 pandemic, our practice is taking the following steps to help assure your health and well-being and that of our community:

We are following directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a way to limit patient and staff exposure to this virus.
Your health, and the health of our dedicated staff, matters to us, so going forward we will suspend all non- emergency care for three weeks.
Patients will be seen only for urgent and emergency dental needs.

We will contact you soon to reschedule routine hygiene appointments. If you are already scheduled for an urgent issue, we will contact you the day before your appointment to discuss your health status, health screening protocols and confirm whether the appointment should be kept. Of course, please call us right away if you have a dental emergency or need immediate care.

The safety and well-being of our patients continues to be our primary concern. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 nationally and within our community and keep you up-to-date regarding our plans to reopen for business as usual.

I urge you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We can be reached by phone at 717-755-4143 or by email to singhsikander@hotmail.com and will respond as soon as we can.

Thank you,

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and water. Minerals are added to and lost from a tooth's enamel layer every time we eat and drink through the process of demineralization and remineralization. Demineralization occurs when acids formed by plaque bacteria and sugars break down the tooth's enamel. Remineralization occurs when the minerals such as fluoride, calcium, and phosphate in the foods and drinks we consume redeposit into the enamel layer of the tooth. Too much demineralization with not enough remineralization causes decay ("cavities"). Fluoride helps to protect teeth by making them more resistant to the acids that cause tooth decay. In addition, fluoride treatments can sometimes reverse early tooth decay that has not yet broken through the enamel layer and decrease sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
