An Important COVID‑19 Announcement

Hello Taylor Dentistry friends and family!

We are happy to share the news that we are re-open for business per the recent Phase 1 announcement by Governor DeSantis! With this exciting news comes some expected changes at our practice and how we will go about patient care.

Please continue to be patient with us as we work to re-schedule the over 300 people who had their appointments cancelled due to the mandatory shut down. That is a lot of patient appointments to reschedule! Also, you may have a few minutes more wait time upon arrival depending on Covid questions and clearances and because we will minimize how many people are in the office at a time.

Alachua County is recommending residents wear masks. We welcome you into our office with your mask on and will simply have you remove it once you are seated in a treatment room for your care. A limited number of patients with masks will be permitted to wait in the lobby.

If you arrive and do not have a mask, we will simply ask you to wait in your car until one of the team is ready to call you in. We have a small quantity of masks right now and cannot give them away.

It is also extremely important NOT TO WEAR GLOVES into our office. We don’t know where those gloves have been! We have ample hand sanitizer throughout the office.

Here is a brief review of several changes that are already in place or will soon be in place:

  • You will notice our team members in more layers of protective gear! That means we will have to smile with our eyes since you won’t be able to see the smiles on our faces! Also, handshakes and hugs will unfortunately need to be avoided. Feet or fist bumps will be welcomed!
  • You will be asked “Covid-19” clearance questions either by phone, by a text link sent with your appointment reminder, or by a team member upon arrival to the office.
  • We will do pre-procedure mouth rinses to help minimize bacteria in the mouth prior to initiating care. Many of you were already in the habit of doing this in the patient restroom. We will now be having you do this in the treatment rooms too.
  • Our hygienists will be implementing some fun new gadgets for your cleanings and periodontal care that aim in reduction of aerosols. Most of what hygiene will implement are measures that have already been in place for treatment rendered with Dr. Taylor. We will now broaden that out for hygiene patients as well.
  • We will soon have air purifiers in each room! This is something we are very excited about since they are not only designed to cut down on viruses but also create a general improvement in air quality for our team and patients.

Fortunately, dentistry is a profession that was already very intentional about disinfection and sterilization. If you have specific questions, please ask so that we can give you comfort and peace of mind for your care.

Implant Dentistry

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.

Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.
