Greetings to all from Lawrence Dental Excellence!!,

As you are all probably aware, the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, after thorough consultation with the Department of Health and the State Board of Dentistry, shut down dental offices, effective March 19. Since that time, we have been complying with the Governor’s order – remaining open for emergency procedures only to do our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and to deliver a different cleaning method for the dental operatory.

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Health revised its COVID-19 Dental Health Care Personnel guidance on May 8 to reflect the Governor’s strategic phased reopening plan. The revised guidance lifts the prohibition on “elective” (non-urgent) dental procedures. What does that mean for you and your family? We are ready to see you now for a vast array of dental services and needs!

Throughout this process, our goal has been to do no harm and to protect our patients (and ourselves), just as some of us did way back in the 1980s when we faced a similar crisis with the AIDS outbreak. Our precautions changed; all procedures necessitated the use of gloves and face protection. So, we continue to follow this rapidly-changing situation and continue to put the safety and health of patients and staff first. The revised guidance further directs dental providers to apply their clinical judgment, knowledge of COVID-19 cases in their respective markets, patient and staff needs, and availability of necessary supplies when assessing whether to move forward with non-urgent and elective dental care.

As we open our doors for non-urgent and non-emergency care, we are continuing to abide by the evolving regulations issued by the state of Pennsylvania to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth. Rest assured that we are also abiding by infection control protocols as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Your health is in good hands, regardless of the needs and goals that may lead you to our office.

After the dental office closure was announced, I had asserted that by the middle of May, much of this would be behind us – that we could then continue to provide what we have always provided: excellent, health-centric dental care. We are right on schedule, and we are here for you. We look forward to hearing from you and reconnecting with you and your family.

Be well and we will see you soon!
Stephen M. Lawrence, DMD and Team


Renew your smile with Dental Veneers in Kingston, PA

 Have you ever heard of someone getting a smile makeover? Chances are, they were getting porcelain veneers. The cosmetic dental procedure can correct gaps in your teeth, teeth that are stained, oddly shaped, or chipped. Veneers can even be used to cosmetically enhance a crooked smile. The highly effective, popular solution gives patients in Kingston, PA natural looking results for a truly beautiful smile. Patients who are tired of being embarrassed by tooth imperfections should schedule a consultation for veneers at Lawrence Dental Excellence.

It Begins with a Consultation

 Once you’ve made the decision to consider veneers for teeth gaps, discolored teeth, or other problems, you’ll begin by sitting down for a consultation with Dr. Lawrence. During this visit he will discuss your vision for the ideal smile, review before and after photos, and recommend options that will complement your facial features, skin tone, and overall appearance. Once this is complete, we can design a treatment plan for your new smile. All our veneers are made of high-quality materials at an experienced dental laboratory.

Preparation for Veneers

 Once your new veneers have been designed, the teeth will be prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel. Impressions are taken for the lab and temporary veneers are placed on top of the teeth. These temporary veneers will protect your teeth while you wait for your final restorations to be ready.

Getting Your New Smile

 During your last appointment, Dr. Lawrence will take off the temporary veneers and attach your final porcelain veneers to your teeth. He will check your bite and can make small adjustments to the veneers if necessary. When it’s all complete, you’ll walk out of the office with your brand-new smile, eager to show it off to the world.

Dr. Lawrence was professional

Dr. Lawrence was professional, his staff was excellent and he completed the work I needed done in one sitting.
