Update: Thank you all for understanding at this time. We want to be as helpful as possible even during the COVID 19 pandemic.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has revised the guidelines for dental practices following a successful meeting with the Pennsylvania Dental Association and other leaders in the dental community. The new guidelines replace those issued on March 22nd and allow dentists to provide emergency dental care as needed.
Routine/elective/cleaning appointments are still not allowed and we are calling patients as needed to reschedule appointments. There is not time table yet for this restriction to be lifted.
If you are in pain, suffering or have an urgent need, please contact us and we will do what we can to help. Our office number is 724 728 0970.
We continue to ask you let us know if you have had any respiratory symptoms or fever, have traveled to a virus hot spot, or have been in contact with anyone who has displayed symptoms.
Keep flossing and brushing. We want to make sure you stay healthy, happy, and keep smiling. We will all get through this.

What's New in Dentistry?
Researchers Find Associations Between Gum Disease And Several Health Problems.
The Washington Post (10/1, Levingston) reported that researchers are finding potential links “between gum or periodontal disease” and several different types of health problems. Although “experts are far from understanding what these links might mean,” the “links between gum disease and diabetes, at-risk pregnancy, heart disease and stroke have been so consistent that some insurers offer extra preventive periodontal care at little or no cost to people with those conditions.” The article pointed out that according to the CDC “nearly half of all Americans age 30 and older have some form of gum disease; in people 65 and older, 70 percent have some degree of periodontal disease.” The article noted, “Signs of gum disease include bleeding, red or swollen gums; areas where the gum seems separated from the teeth; bad breath; and loose teeth, which can cause changes in your bite, according to the American Dental Association.”
MouthHealthy.org also provides information for patients gum disease, heart disease and oral health, and diabetes and oral health.
Clayton Dentistry offers dental care that puts your comfort first!
On your first visit, you will have an opportunity to provide them with a full health history.
Your new patient visit will start with a comprehensive examination by one of our dentists. This includes a review of your medical history, your dental history, a discussion of your concerns for any immediate problems and a thorough look at your entire mouth. Radiographs (x-rays) are usually required and often models of your upper and lower teeth may be made in cases involving complex solutions to your needs.
Be sure to look over and complete your new patient form (available to download on the right) and provide any information to medical questions and a list of your current medications. Recent dental x-rays from previous dental visits can often be helpful; please bring them with you if available.
A personalized treatment plan will constructed based on your needs. Typically, six month checkups are available to help your teeth stay cleaner and last longer. It is during these ongoing visits that we may identify any serious dental problems that are developing.
Make sure to tell us of any medicines you’re taking, any fears or anxieties you may have, and any concerns you have about your dental health care, especially if you are pregnant, at each visit.

How dental insurance works:
Dental insurance plans are typically an agreement between your employer and an insurance company. Your employer and the insurance company agree on what your plan will cover and benefit amounts.
If your insurance is self-funded, then your insurance plan is an agreement between you and an insurance company.
Keep in mind that most dental insurance plans make it easier to pay for dental care, but your coverage is not based on what you need or what your dentist may recommend. It is based on how much your employer pays for the plan.
