UPDATED on 01/03/22:
COVID-19 PCR Testing/Rapid Testing is available at Live & Smile Dental
Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases and the difficulty in obtaining timely tests, we will be including a COVID-19 Rapid Test/PCR Test with your scheduled dental appointments. This is NOT mandatory, but strongly encouraged, especially with aerosol-generating procedures. With COVID-19 Rapid Tests, you are able to get your results within 20 minutes. With COVID-19 PCR tests, you are able to get your results within 24-48 hours. We are hoping that this approach will make testing more available to our patients and do our part to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Arrive 25 minutes before your scheduled dental appointment to ensure we can process the Rapid test before your dental appointment. If you arrive less than 25 minutes before your appointment, we can still administer a PCR Test (results in 24-48 hours). If you arrive less than 10 minutes before your scheduled dental appointment, we most likely will not be able to offer you either COVID test.
