Give Kids a Smile Day is an event Cleona Dental started in 2010. Give Kids a Smile Day is usually held in the month of February in honor of Children’s Dental Health Month. This event has been held at our office from 2010-2012, and we expect to continue the event annually.
This special day is meant to help less fortunate children in our community who are not receiving dental care. Thanks to the generosity of our dental team we were able to provide valuable dental services to area children over the last 3 years events at no cost to the child. Services completed included: Exams, Cleanings, Fillings, Extractions, X-rays, Sealants & Root Canals.
For more information about this yearly event, please contact our office!
Give Back a Smile Program
Dr. Frederick Johnson has completed quite a few “Give Back a Smile” cases over the last few years.The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation’s (AACDCF) Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program provides dental care at no cost to survivors of intimate partner violence who have received traumatic dental injuries to their smile-zone as a result of abuse. Dr. Johnson has donated his time and talents to restore or replace damaged teeth on some of these victims.
Bruises and scars fade, but broken teeth cannot repair themselves. The GBAS program is the only nationwide program serving this unmet need.There is a screening process and domestic violence victims must apply for the GBAS program service through the AACD.Kudos’ to Dr. Johnson for helping to restore some of these victim’s smiles.
While many things have changed over the last couple of months, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
That's why our staff is taking every precaution to make this office as safe as possible for our patients. You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment including:
Our office will communicate with you before your appointment to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
When you arrive for your appointment, don't enter the office. Call us and an escort will come down to take your temperature, ask you COVID-19 screening questions, and then walk you to the office.
If your temperature is over 100.4 we will need to reschedule your appointment.
We are only allowing the actual patient to come up to the office unless you are a child under the age of 18 (then one parent will need to come to the appointment), or a patient that needs assistance (then one caregiver may come to appointment).
We ask that a mask be worn to all appointments to keep other patients and our staff safe in the spreading of COVID-19.
Please use the provided hand sanitizer 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.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys, and so forth since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients.
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.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
