Going to the Dentist During COVID-19: What’s Different?

Going to the dentist during COVID-19 will be very different from what we are used to. More importantly, at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry, our biggest concern is the safety of our patients and team. Because of this, we have dedicated time and effort to ensure that we have all of the necessary precautions in place to see patients. The situation is constantly changing. As of now, here are some of the guidelines that we are following:

  • Upholding high sterilization standards, as always
  • Using UV sanitizers to help clean more effectively
  • We are asking everybody to wear a mask and wash hands upon entry where we will check temperatures
  • Parents will fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire before visits
  • Our office is very large so we can practice social distancing easily
  • We have sanitizers throughout the office
  • One-way traffic for patients/parents to come in and leave through different exits
  • Paperless forms that can be completed on tablet that will be cleaned after every use
  • Daily temperature checks and health history reviews for our employees
  • Our uniforms have always been laundered on-site, which is now required
  • All employees will wear the necessary protective gear

Great Grins: Going to the Dentist During COVID-19

We are following these guidelines and other recommendations (from the ADA and other organizations) closely. This way, we can still see patients at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry. We will make necessary changes as the situation develops. Please call us if you have any questions.

Your child’s dental visit will look different, especially to little ones. Before the visit, try to talk to your child about possible changes. Explain that the dental team may look different, but it is for their protection. It can still be a fun trip to the dentist!

If your child is having a true dental emergency, contact Great Grins Children’s Dentistry at (520)325-4746. Please remember to stay safe and stay home if you are sick. We are in this together. We look forward to seeing you soon.


3 Ways to Relax: Ideas for Kids and Adults

3 Ways to Relax – Ideas for Kids and Adults!

We gathered a list of simple ways to relax for anybody who needs it. Many things are changing and change can come with stress for both kids and adults. At Great Grins Children’s Dentistry, we want you to SMILE even through tough events. For that reason, we decided to put together a small list of ideas to help you and your little ones unwind.

Move Around

Exercising is a great way to get your mind off of things for a little while. Don’t worry – you don’t have to run if that’s not your thing! Try going for a walk, or even playing with your pet. Tucson can get pretty hot, so you can try working out inside. If you have the space, jump roping is a great idea. Kids can play hide and seek or try exercises like jumping jacks.

Hit the Books

Still haven’t opened that book you’ve been meaning to read? Now is the perfect time! As for the little ones, check out our book ideas here. We’re a kid’s dentistry so, naturally, our favorite books talk about teeth! If you are feeling too distracted to read, try keeping a journal instead. This way, you can write down your thoughts and transfer some of those distractions to paper.

Listen to Music

Sometimes we forget how relaxing it can be to just lay down and listen to music. Take some time to listen to your favorite songs and disconnect for a bit.

We know that uncertainty can come with a lot of different emotions. That is why we want to make your experience in our office as stress-free as possible. Remember that Great Grins Children’s Dentistry is open and we are taking precautions for the safety of our team and patients. We are closely monitoring any changes or recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA). Please call (520)325-4746 with any questions.
