What Our Marietta Dentist is Doing to Keep Patients Safe During COVID-19

Dental Care Center at Kennestone is committed to providing safe, quality care for our patients in an environment that protects your family and our staff. Here’s what we’re doing to make that possible:

Reduced Staff On-Site
Right now, we’re not scheduling routine or elective procedures, such as cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, or care that can be put off until a later time. That way there are fewer people on site and we’re able to better maintain appropriate social distancing. Once things start to settle down, we’ll probably start making changes to the schedule to lower the number of people coming in and out. As always, everyone will continue to wear PPE in addition to our front office staff.

Restricting Care to Emergencies Only
For the time being, the ADA and state dental officials have advised dentists to only provide emergency services to their patients. So, if you’re in pain and require immediate attention, rest assured that you can contact us at any time. Even if it looks like our office is closed, you can reach one of our staff 24/7 by calling us.

Minimizing Interactions
It’s true, things look a little different right now. When you visit Dental Care Center at Kennestone, you’ll “check in” by calling us from your car instead of stopping by the front desk. We’ll meet you at the door and escort you straight in, preventing any unnecessary social interaction with too many other people.

Providing Palliative Care
If you don’t require immediate treatment but you do have a tooth that hurts, be sure to call us. We may recommend an over-the-counter or prescription medication to help in the meantime.

Dental Care Center at Kennestone is always here to answer your questions. If you need assistance, please contact us today.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
