Guerrino Dentistry is taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety and health of our patients, visitors, and employees during this COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, we are working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( to monitor the situation.

Our dental specialists and on-site staff members are trained on proper handwashing techniques and will wear clean pairs of gloves throughout their shifts. For safety reasons, Guerrino Dentistry will request employees to return home if they show the slightest sign of illness. We would like to also remind our staff members to call in prior to their shifts if they are unwell.
