Covid-19 Office Update

To our Valued Clients and Friends:

Our team here at Paramount Dental Center sincerely hope that your summer is offering you smiles and laughter, and that you are keeping safe and healthy. It has been a joy to have seen so many faces since we reopened in May, and we feel such great honor to serve you and your family these last few months.

We wanted to take time to communicate to you that we continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and its impact in how we deliver the safest dental care possible in our offices in Seattle and Kirkland. As you know, we have implemented many changes in how we operate our dental offices. We continue to add and improve on these safety measures as we learn new insights. You can learn about these safety measures below.

We feel confident that we can deliver dental care in the safest manner. We believe that dental care is vital in achieving and maintaining total health and immunity to any form of illness. That is to say that we believe the services we provide are unequivocally essential.

We are excited to be part of your community in Seattle and Kirkland. We are excited to be doing what we love. We are excited to serve.

Daily non-toxic HOCl fogger is one of many precautions we take for a safe and clean space. The disinfectant fog reaches multiple surfaces in a room providing a thorough approach for sanitizing.

This eliminates the need for a second visit- we deliver that final restoration to you in the same visit.
