During this unprecedented pandemic, people still have many dental needs. They understand the importance of maintaining teeth cleanings several times a year. Some people need to tend to their dental implants or have their gums checked because of swelling. Some people have emergencies such as a painful tooth which needs to be extracted. Many who need to go to the dentist are fearful of human contact during the pandemic. Florida Smiles Dental is dedicated to a clean and safe environment and makes sure their staff is checked daily before entering the office. Their dental offices perform teeth cleanings, dental crowns, veneers, teeth whitening, braces, Invisalign & the treatment of gum disease.
