Our Response to Covid-19

As always our health and well-being of our patients is our primary focus. First I want to assure you the clinical treatment areas are being handled exactly with the same sterilization techniques that have always been in place. Additionally we have removed all magazines and brochures from the waiting room . All waiting area surfaces are disinfected every 30-60 minutes. We will not allow any employee or patient to present to the office with any signs of illness. All of our office staff will have been tested for the COVID-19 and the hygienist and Dr. McConnell will have the N95 mask.  Our hygienist also uses a release, high-speed evacuation system, which removes all airborne pathogens during routine cleanings. We will monitor all of our patients with a  temporal thermometer as well as our staff daily.  In addition to the steps we have already taken we have installed HEPA air purifiers in the office which cleanse the air to get rid of impurities . We are open for dental emergencies and hope to be caring for our patients for routine care by the middle or end of May. We can have our patients wait in their cars until their appointment time.

Our dentist is skilled in the use of lasers for treatment and procedures. In fact, Dr. Peter McConnell is one of the few in the state to practice laser dentistry. He uses the Powerlase® AT laser to benefit our patients. Lasers offer greater precision, decreased bleeding, and lesser discomfort following a procedure. However, one of the most significant benefits of laser dentistry is the virtual elimination of pain. This, in and of itself, has the advantages of reducing the need for anesthesia and shots, which means patients do not have to worry about needles.

Providing our patients with pain-free dentistry is essential to our dental practice. This applies to adults as well as children. We take away one of people’s biggest fears when it comes to dentist visits – that of pain. Procedures done with lasers are virtually painless, so our patients welcome their use in treatment.


Dr. McConnell has more than 35 years of dental experience, allowing you to feel confident when seeking treatment at our facility. As a matter of fact, many of our patients have been coming to us for a number of years – a fact that in which we take a great deal of pride.

You find that same loyalty and longevity in our staff of dental hygienists, assistants, and office managers. Through our restorative, cosmetic dentistry, we are here to enhance the health, well-being, and self-esteem of our patients. We invite you and your family to become patients of ours.
