New Year’s resolutions are a nice tradition: the idea that we can all set a goal to do something better in the following year. But how often do you set a goal to take better care of your teeth? Many people set goals to improve their education or to volunteer more. And of course, a lot of people resolve to lose weight and eat healthier.
Good news! You don’t necessarily have to set a goal of taking better care of your teeth because it might come naturally. Here are some New Year’s resolutions that will work to improve your dental health:

The Dental Care Center team wishes you a happy and healthy 2020!
With the recent concerns of the spread of COVID-19, Coronavirus, we at The Dental Care Center, wanted you to know that we are doing everything possible to keep our employees and you, our patients, safe while delivering the best dental experience possible.
Effective immediately through April 15th, the services offered by The Dental Care Center will only be available to those experiencing dental emergencies.
Our offices may be operating under a modified schedule so we ask that you contact our office to schedule an appointment. All non-emergency appointments will be scheduled after April 15th. If you currently have an appointment scheduled with us, a member of our team will contact you to reschedule.
We have a full team in place via phone or live chat to assist patients with scheduling future appointments.
We are monitoring and following all guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which includes taking the necessary steps to reduce the threat of COVID-19 exposure to employees and patients. Rest assured that we ALWAYS employ the highest standards of disinfection and sterilization to protect our patients from any potential contamination or infection. These regular procedures have been supplemented in recent days due to added concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus. In addition to our usual procedures, we will perform infrared temperature screening for patients and team members effective immediately. We have also increased the frequency of cleaning duties to disinfect shared surfaces in the waiting room and around the office such as counters, doorknobs, and seating areas. We are requesting that patients limit the number of family members that accompany them to their appointment. We are also screening patients as they make appointments to try to identify high-risk individuals and carriers before they even enter our office.
At the Dental Care Center, we want our patients to feel confident that their safety is our top priority and that we are taking reasonable measures to make this office one of the least likely places to be exposed to this new threat.
We are committed to serving you and your families. You are our patients, part of our family, and together we will get through this situation.
