 Starting Monday, May 18th, 2020, Dr. David L. Woodruff, D.D.S., will reopen for full-time patient care. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing all our patients soon. As a result of the current global pandemic, the office has adopted additional practices recommended by the ADA to ensure safe care for all patients. Please review the below (new) office policies and contact our office with any questions: 

  •  Patients/visitors will be required to wear a face mask to enter the office. 
  • Patients/visitors will be required to use hand sanitizer provided at the front desk immediately upon entry. 
  • Patients/visitors must use social distancing while in the office. 
  • Patients will be required to answer a series of pre-screening health questions in advance of any appointments. The same questions will be asked again upon arrival at the office. 
  • Patients' temperatures will be taken upon entry. Patients must register a temperature lower than 100.4oF. 
  • Patients should arrive no earlier than five (5) minutes prior to appointment time. 
  • Patients are asked to come to appointments alone when possible. Companions are asked to remain in their vehicles if possible. 

Please be patient with us. We are contacting patients who's appointments had to be cancelled over the past few months.
