We know that the Coronavirus is of growing concern to our community, country, and world. As schools close or move to distance learning and all sporting events and large gatherings in the country cancel or postpone, we feel it is important for us all to learn the facts about Covid-19 and practice appropriate protective measures while avoiding unnecessary fear and panic. The CDC has extensive information available on-line, which is being updated daily. They have released a set of simple guidelines for the workplace, school, and home that will help to keep you protected and to mitigate the spread of the virus. Here is a link to those guidelines:
It is up to all of us to wisely slow the spread of the virus, without stopping all aspects of life as we know it. During this time, we ask that all patients or their immediate families who have had a known exposure to the Coronavirus or who demonstrate symptoms including fever, cough, or shortness of breath please contact the office to reschedule your appointment. Studies are currently being conducted to determine the period of time patients are contagious from point of exposure through a point past the disappearance of clinical symptoms, but this timeframe is still not fully known at this time. Until this period is known, we recommend a full 14 days elapse after known exposure or cessation of clinical flu-like symptoms before you return to the office for any non-urgent care. This corresponds with the current recommended quarantine time after known exposure to Coronavirus.
Our goal is to make our office one of the cleanest, safest places you can visit so as to continue to provide excellent care for our patients.

Dr. David Hall, Jr. is a general dentist who graduated from UNC Dental School in 1996. "My father was an architectural illustrator, so I grew up seeing and understanding both function and beauty in nature and in buildings. When I graduated dental school, my first passion was in beauty. I took courses in cosmetics in New York where I was able to learn from some of the nation’s best in smile design.
As my practice developed and my experience grew, I realized that function and the hinge from which our mouth swings needed more education. With this in mind, I’ve studied in Florida with Pete Dawson to learn more about function.
My passion now is to blend what I’ve learned into the ability to diagnose and think long-term about what is in the patient’s best interest. It’s easy to cut down teeth for veneers and improve beauty quickly, but if the function is not studied, then the length of time or the function of those teeth may be in jeopardy long term. Dentistry today is amazing and exciting, but patients have to understand the consequences for what they are investing in.
My office is geared towards education of our patients so that they understand what good dentistry is before work is done. We want patients to have the beauty and function of their teeth for a lifetime. We want patients to value their good health."
