To our wonderful patients and their families,
We miss you all and hope you and your family are in good health. Michigan has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your child’s dental health, safety and overall well-being.
On May 21, Governor Whitmer made the announcement that dental offices can start to resume routine care. We are SO excited to see everyone again!
We have been working very hard to gear up for a reopening, but it will occur in stages. In the initial phase, we need to focus on those patients who have emergent dental needs. During this first phase it will be necessary to see a reduced volume of patients on a daily basis. This is needed to comply with new guidelines on social distancing and infection control from state and national agencies. We will do our best to accommodate as many patients as possible but this may mean a need to reschedule your child’s appointment. We will begin making phone calls next week for rescheduling and greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during this process and our transition into this new normal. Once we have contacted you and have been able to schedule/reschedule your child’s appointment, we will send you an email with what to expect when you arrive and during their appointment. Please allow us to reach out to you, this will keep our phone lines open and expedite the process as we work hard to reschedule everyone!
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your previous visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when your child receives care, it’s both safe and comfortable. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and your child, safe in our practice. Please email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you, our patients, neighbors and friends back very soon.

When was the last time you looked at your tongue? A healthy tongue should appear pink and should be covered in small, evenly sized nodules, which are called papillae. If your tongue changes in color, texture, or size, this could be a sign of an underlying health...
Such a welcoming atmosphere, GREAT first impression!!

Dr. Port is a joy and her staff is absolutely amazing!!
Dr. Port is a joy and her staff is absolutely amazing!! My boys have been coming here from out of town for years and it is worth the drive. My little one is completely relaxed and at ease and my big boy is all smiles after his visit. We’ve been through a cavity with one and braces with the other and their teeth are healthy and look great and they are well cared for. I would recommend Dr. Port to friends and family any day!
