Per directives from the CDC and California Dental Association, we are suspending all elective treatments for 2 weeks.  We are still available for urgent care. Once it is deemed safe to resume treatment, I would like our patient family to know the steps we will always take to keep you, and us, safe.  They are in fact the measures that are practiced day in and day out, hour after hour, consistently over many years time that have always kept us and our patients safe from infectious agents.  The novel Coronavirus currently infecting thousands worldwide can be killed on surfaces just as other Coronaviruses that cause cold or flu illnesses, and appears less hardy than other pathogenic viruses like Herpes or Hepatitis. It is, however, easily transmitted due to it's incubation period, and that people may be infected but have no or only mild symptoms. With the high-level surface disinfection and instrument sterilization employed after each and every patient encounter, disinfection of non-clinical areas like counters and desks, the use of personal protective equipment, and skilled staff that rigorously practice infection control as a way of daily life, you can be assured of safety when being cared for.  We have enhanced our daily routine by more frequent disinfection of non-clinical areas so door pulls, counters, chairs, and items touched by patients are always clean.  We ask you to use hand sanitizer, or wash in the restroom with soap and water, when you first arrive for an appointment, and again as you leave.  Your ability to have quality care in a clean, safe environment always has been and will be our unified goal as a care team. 
    Since we currently do not know when agencies may give a go-ahead to resume regular elective care like checkups, you will be contacted some time before your upcoming appointment and be re-scheduled for the next available times, likely in July or August.  Remember that urgent care needs will still be addressed, and we will be here for you. 
Stay Safe, keep washing your hands (and THEN use your picks!)

Daniel C. Dozier, DDS

Dr. Dozier was born and raised in Stockton. After graduating with honors from UC Santa Barbara, he attended Emory University School of Dentistry in Atlanta and received his dental degree in 1983. Subsequently, he completed a General Practice Residency at Valley Medical Center in Fresno, gaining valuable additional training in Anesthesia, the treatment of medically-compromised patients, and the management of traumatic injuries. Upon returning to Stockton, he was privileged to continue the private practice of the retiring Dr. Robert Eakin. 

He maintains a special interest in Cosmetic and Restorative procedures, and also enjoys providing care to children. According to Dr. Dozier; "Kids are completely genuine, and expect the same in return. You can't fool a kid, they can smell a phony a mile away." Through regular continuing education courses and his membership in the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Joaquin Dental Society, and the San Joaquin Restorative Study Group, he strives to maintain the highest standards of personal service for the family of patients who have entrusted him with their care.
