We express gratitude and appreciation to you for entrusting the Smile Institute of Family Dentistry with
your dental care. In this time, gratitude and appreciation are sentiments that may be less popular as
people are feeling a great deal of despair, anxiety, frustration, and uncertainty.
The pandemic has affected the healthcare industry in tremendous ways. For dental practices, staffing
shortages have had a severe impact since many hygienists were forced to retire or some stepped away
from the industry after evaluating the risk-reward factors.
As a result of the work force shortage, our practice has had to reserve fewer appointments. We ask for
your patience. If you have an appointment reserved to see Dr. Mims, try your best to keep that
appointment because her next available reservation may not be for several months.
We encourage all our patients to optimize their health by consistent home care habits to include twice
daily brushing and flossing.
Although uncertainty is occurring all around us, one thing will not change, Dr. Mims and her team love
seeing our patients and we are committed to provide 5-star service. Thank you for choosing us. We look
forward to seeing you at your next dental visit!
