Our office is temporarily closed to routine patient care in order to comply with state and federal mandates in place to combat the Covid-19 crisis. We will remain closed until health officials give us clearance to resume normal operation. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Even though we are not seeing patients during this time, we are still here for you if you need anything. We would love to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns or if you just want to say hi. Text us anytime! Our office hours will be reduced, but we will be checking messages and emails regularly.

For Our Current Patients
Currently, appointments in our office are limited to orthodontic emergencies only. Even though your regular appointment may need to be postponed during this time, you can help keep your treatment on track by avoiding hard and sticky foods and keeping your teeth clean. Without repair appointments available, breaking a bracket could set your treatment back, and keeping your teeth clean will ensure the best possible result.
If You Are Experiencing a True Orthodontic Emergency:
The American Association of Orthodontists has defined an orthodontic emergency as acute issues involving pain, infection and trauma (not routine loose or broken brackets). Dr. Kofford will be available to address such emergencies in the office as needed. To help determine the need for an office visit, ask yourself if you can wait two to three weeks for an appointment. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to text call us!
If You Are Experiencing a Non-Emergency Problem:
Telehealth appointments with Dr. Kofford or one of his assistants can be made to address non-emergency concerns or to provide guidance on managing a problem with your treatment at home. Please text or call our office to schedule.
If You Are Wearing Elastics (Rubber Bands):
Dr. Kofford recommends that you continue your elastic wear for six weeks from your last appointment, then reduce wear to nighttime for one month. If you still have not been seen in the office, then discontinue wear until your next appointment.
Thank you for your understanding as we all work to get through this together.
Wishing you and your family health and look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces really soon!!
