Morfas Family Dentistry has always practiced to the highest levels of disinfection but several new steps have been added for safety.  These additional layers, however, will never affect the personalized care that we have always given our patients.  Hopefully soon, we will be able to go back to our jobs and careers and rebuild our lives.  My team and I can’t wait!

In the meantime, should you have any dental emergencies that need attention, I will be available for limited treatment or referral at 322-9905 from 9am until noon Mon-Friday.

Until then, stay healthy and stay home!
