I came in for my twice annual cleaning. I did not feel any anxiety about the shield-less dental assistant working on my teeth. American Family Dentistry (AFD) advertises that it has multiple protective devices in its buildings to control viruses and bacteria (I had COVID months ago...and do not intend to get vaccinated). I feel that AFD 'follows the science' and provides the best practices for disease prevention required. As for the dental work itself, it was the fastest I have ever had for cleaning. The dental assistant answered my numerous questions with a friendly, 'not-knowing-everything' attitude. I will continue to use AFD as my primary dental care provider.
