A toothache or other mouth pain can make it difficult to get through your day (or spoil your sleep) during the best of times. But during COVID-19, you might think you don’t have options to address your dental issues.
Even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to not put on hold preventative and restorative dental care that can affect your health in major ways both currently and down the road.
CareSouth Carolina’s Division of Dental Medicine is working hard to provide a safe experience for its patients and is currently seeing both adults and children in its Bishopville Pediatric Dental office under the leadership of Dr. Joshua Hubbard. Dr. Hubbard graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.
Inside the office, CareSouth Carolina is taking proper precautions by spacing out appointment times so that patients aren’t in the waiting room at the same time, proper PPE is always worn, COVID-19 screenings are done of both staff and patients before entry and each room is thoroughly cleaned after use.
In addition to the work being done at the Bishopville Pediatric Dental office, CareSouth Carolina now has dental teams working in several schools in Chesterfield County. Through the ‘Miles of Smiles’ program, CSC is able to see students on a dental mobile unit (DMU) at their schools who may not have access to dental services otherwise.
If a child does not attend a school in Chesterfield County and would like to be seen, their parents or school nurse can contact CareSouth Carolina to schedule an appointment and they can be seen on the DMU.
Currently, CareSouth Carolina is doing exams and x-rays on DMU and will be working to get hygiene going soon.
