So many things have changed over the last few months, and we know you’re just as ready as we are to “get back to normal.” But it’s still important to honor the recommendations set by our state and city leaders as well as the American Dental Association (ADA) and Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC). We want to keep you and your family safe while still taking care of your oral health. You may have a few questions about what that looks like, so we’re here to answer them.

There are many benefits to using mouthwash as long as you use it the right way. We’ll answer all your mouthwash questions so you can clean your teeth and gums effectively.

Are you ready to gift yourself with the smile of your dreams but don’t want braces? The beauty of Invisalign is fast-working, reliable technology that straightens your teeth and corrects your bite without any metal. The only evidence is a straighter smile. At Anderson and Atkins DDS, we are proud to offer Invisalign to our patients. We’re here to answer your questions and help you determine if this treatment is best for you.
