Your emergency dentist for kids in Katy, Dr. A, would simply wash his hands, put on a new pair of gloves, and place his mask on, ready to care for your loved one’s smile. Many things have certainly changed since then, but the importance of maintaining your child’s oral health hasn’t. At Happy Chompers Pediatric Dentistry, we’ve implemented some new protocols to enable everyone—patients and team members alike—to stay healthy throughout these turbulent times.
