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


What is Trial Smile™

Have you considered porcelain veneers to improve your smile? Do you wonder what your teeth would look like with porcelain veneers? Trial Smile is a service we provide that makes a mock up of what your smile would look like with veneers. This gives you the ability to take your future teeth for a test drive. Trial Smile is a non-invasive, simple, pain free and a temporary way to see how your teeth would look with porcelain veneers.

After meeting with your cosmetic dentist and having a proper consultation we perform Trial Smile, which offers a temporary look at what you'd look like with porcelain veneers.

This is how Trial Smile works:

Step 1- A blue print of your desired smile is given to a dental laboratory artist, who will use models of your teeth or digital images to create your design. At Beacon Place Dental Group, we use a design technique called "Digital Smile Design" to create your blue print, "your smile, your face", that is designed based on your facial esthetics.

Step 2- This design is then transferred to your models, by using wax, the laboratory dental artist sculpts the wax to form the shape of the new you.

Step 3- Create a silicone index which duplicates the wax form

Step 4- Inject tooth colored material into the form which is then placed over your teeth to create an overlay on top of your existing teeth. This will give you an idea of what your veneers may look like.

Now, keep in mind that your teeth are not being altered in any way, so if your teeth are too big or too long and need to be shorter or smaller then this will not work.

Once you had a chance to admire what could be done, this temporary overlay is peeled off.
