Coronavirus Updates

Time to start thinking about “What’s next?” 

Hopefully we will be entering Phase 2 very soon and this will signify that less of the virus is around, but we still need to keep our guard up! Let me share with you exactly what we have done to protect us all.

One of the major improvements we have done is to install 4 Reme Halo air purification systems to protect the entire office. 

These units have the following features and benefits:
• Dual ionizers to reduce airborne particulates (dust, dander, pollen, mold spores)
• Kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses
• REME® reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet.
• New zinc ions kill 99% of viruses on surfaces
• Unlike portable units that are limited to the room in which they are placed, the REME HALO® provides whole home and building purification.
• Easily integrated with your existing HVAC system. The unit doesn’t take away living space and operates silently.
• Two (2) quick release features for easy, no tool, cell replacement
• Incorporates an adjustable shroud around the REME® cell, which allows customization of the advanced oxidation plasma output.

It has the following applications:

• U.S. Military approved for mold reduction in field hospitals.
• U.S. and International Hospital approval for the fight against infectious diseases: 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA).
• Major U.S. city school reports 20% reduction in absenteeism.
• Tested and approved by the Chinese Government for protection against the deadly SARS virus.
• Approved by the USDA, FSIS, and FDA for use in food processing plants. Employed to reduce microbial contamination of food being processed.
• Cruise lines use it as a safety measure against Norwalk Virus outbreaks


The REME HALO® can be installed in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications where a ducted HVAC system exists. Here are some examples:

• Single family homes, apartments, condos
• In hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and doctor’s offices
• Schools, daycare centers, colleges and universities
• Fitness centers, locker rooms, athletic facilities
• Office buildings
• Veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, kennels,
• Hotels, motels, and resorts.
• Food processing and manufacturing plants/facilities
• Restaurants, diners, and bars
And to review, some changes and protocols you will see when it is time for your next appointment:
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • Other than when you are having dental treatment, wear a face mask at all times.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • We will take your temperature with a hands-free forehead thermometer.
  • Once seated in the dental chair, we will ask you to gargle with hydrogen peroxide.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines,  since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Please ask Elena or Bonnie for cups.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
Types of appointments we are now scheduling
  • Emergencies of any kind
  • Patients in which treatment may have been delayed, but could cause more damage by waiting any longer
  • Patients in the middle of treatment and any delay would cause more problems
  • Hygiene appointments for all patients that have active periodontal disease
  • Anybody that has had gum disease in the past, and could develop an emergent problem if a cleaning appointment  is postponed any further
  • As always just call if you have any questions on what can be done at this time

We Offer Several Options for Financing Dental Care


During your initial consultation, Dr. William Papadopoulos or Dr. Pilar Sanchez will thoroughly go over the cost of treatment so that you can make informed decisions when financing dental care at our Brookline, MA, practice. There are a variety of factors that can affect the total cost of your treatment, and it is important to keep in mind that your insurance may only cover a portion of your treatment. At Beacon Place Dental Group, we accept all major credit cards and provide you with several different financing options to help make your treatment as affordable as possible. 

Factors Influencing Your Dental Care Costs

It is important to keep each of these in mind as you estimate your total costs for your treatment.

  • Specific Procedure: One of the primary factors is the specific type of treatment or procedure you have done. Getting a dental crown is a lot less expensive than replacing several missing teeth with dental implants.
  • Combination of Procedures: In some cases, combining treatments or procedures can save you money and time. Dr. Papadopoulos can help you determine which specific combination of procedures will benefit you most while staying within your budget.
  • Restorations: The type, material, and number of restorations you need can all affect the cost of your treatment. Some materials, while more durable and more aesthetically pleasing, are more expensive than others. Additionally, treatment requiring a full implant-supported denture may cost more than an implant-supported bridge or traditional dentures.
  • Insurance Coverage: Your insurance may not completely cover your treatment, and in some cases, it may provide no coverage at all. It is important to check with your insurance company prior to scheduling treatment to find out what is covered and how that will affect your costs.
At Beacon Place Dental Group, we accept all major credit cards and provide you with several different financing options to help make your treatment as affordable as possible. 

Discussing Budget During Your Consultation

Dr. Papadopoulos or Dr. Sanchez will perform a comprehensive exam during your consultation to evaluate your oral health. At this time, he or she will discuss your goals for treatment and your budget with you. It is important to speak frankly about your budget, as they may be able to make an alternative plan that meets your needs. They will outline each of the procedures  recommended to improve your oral health, and they will give you an estimate for the cost of each procedure. Dr. Papadopoulos or Dr. Sanchez will ensure you fully understand the costs associated with each procedure prior to your decision. Based on this information and information from your insurance provider, you can make an informed decision about your dental care.
