COVID-19 Update

Pure Dental Health is dedicated to helping our community during this time. We are seeing patients for emergencies BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call our office to schedule your appointment.

We’ve made a decision based on ADA and CDC recommendations to postpone elective procedures for at least one week, however, we are still seeing patients depending on your need.

According to the association, emergency dental care include:

  • Any treatment for pain, swelling or infection
  • Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
  • Loose or displaced restorations

Refrain from coming in if you have:

  • A fever
  • A cough or shortness of breath
  • A history of significant chronic illness
  • A compromised immune system
  • Or if you or a family member:
    • Are considered high-risk
    • Have traveled to a location with a level 3 travel health notice
    • Have traveled in a airplane in the past two weeks
    • Have been previously asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine
    • Have had close contact to an individual diagnosed with the COVID-19 infection

We are also scheduling virtual exams. You can meet with a dentist from your home. This service will allow you to have a virtual exam with your dentist via video call. This service should be available by 3/20/20. When calling, notify our scheduler if you would like to schedule a virtual appointment and they will take your name and number and get back with you with available times once this service is live.

We will be posting updates as we have them.

Close to 37,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral and pharyngeal cancer this year alone. Of the patients diagnosed, 8,000 will die and 18,000 will die within 5 years. The mortality rates for these types of cancers are higher than many cancers that are commonly screened for including cervical cancer. Pure Dental Health provides the recommended yearly oral cancer screenings for patients in Buckhead and the greater Atlanta metropolitan area as part of their general dental care.

Screening patients for oral cancer every year helps us detect oral cancer as early as possible so we can catch the disease before it is too late. Early detection of oral cancer facilitates early and aggressive treatment and can lead to better outcomes and survival rates.

It is also important to communicate with your dentist or a physician if you notice continued changes in your mouth or throat. This could include swelling, sores (ulcers), numbness or difficulty swallowing or chewing. However, it is important to note that oral pain does not always occur with oral cancer. For this reason, it is very important to receive annual screenings even if you are not having any symptoms.

At our Buckead dental practice, patients receive oral cancer screenings in the comfort of our clean, contemporary office where they enjoy amenities including valet parking, flat screen televisions, hot scented towels and blankets, noise cancelling headphones, a beverage station and an Internet Bar. Dr. Scott also provides sedation dentistry to keep patients relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures.

We look forward to getting to know you and to helping you take care of your smile.
