A Note about Coronavirus

We want to thank each of you for your continued support and well wishes.
Dr. Zapatero has been in contact with leading dental infection control researchers.  Current studies from around the world have clearly shown that there have been ZERO transmissions of ANY diseases (bacterial or viral) linked to aerosolized particles produced during a dental procedure. NONE!  Universal precautions already in place have kept both patients and our staff safe.  We have more than a thirty-year safety track record and continuously implemented new safety control measures.  That being said, we have taken additional measures to enhance our protocols. We will continue to monitor the data and research because we understand that one day a link "MAY" occur.  Everyone's well being is our concern.
