Greetings from Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney
Drs. John Pinnix and George Betancourt would like to extend our sincerest best wishes to you and your families. We hope that you continue to navigate these most difficult times with strength, perseverance and the promise that we will all soon return to 'business as usual'.
Please note, the purpose of this email is not to go into detail about our office protocols during the current COVID- 19 response. We always have and will continue to maintain the highest level of aseptic and sterilization techniques. Regarding our office hours, we are presently closed as a result of recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the American Dental Association. For patients with upcoming appointments, trust that we will communicate directly with you via phone call to reschedule them as we learn more about our current situation.
For the time being, we want to extend to you, our patients, the helping hand you need during these times for all things dental. While we may be limited in terms of office hours and available services, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt remain available to you via other modalities. For example, we ask that you please find and follow our social media pages, pinnixandbetancourt on Instagram, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney on Facebook, and @BlakeneySmiles on Twitter. We will use these social media outlets as a means of communication and also a way to provide a Question & Answer forum for general questions anyone may have.
For personal/private needs related to ongoing treatment or your dental health, we will be available to schedule a virtual consultation. This may be accomplished via FaceTime, Zoom meeting or other platform whereby we may have a face to face encounter. These will be available to you, our patient, as a courtesy.
These are unprecedented times for us all. We strive to be on the front edge of the capabilities and service we provide our patients. Much of that depends on our availability and communication. We are here and we will, across any medium possible, provide the guidance you need during these difficult times. We ask that you please reach out to us either via email to the office (email@example.com), one of our social media platforms, or our phone line from which you can leave a message. We will make every effort possible to get back to you in a timely manner.
From Drs. Pinnix, Betancourt and our entire staff at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we hope you and your families manage the COVID-19 pandemic with an abundance of care, caution and respect for the well being of our community.

Amanda: Dr. Betancourt's great. He is amazing. He's great with his patients, he's great to us, he's amazing at what he does. Maria: One thing that I really like about Dr. Betancourt that I don't see anywhere else is that he really takes the time to sit down with each individual patient to find out their needs and their goals. Clare: Just visiting with him, I think, was just the most amazing part of working with him, is that he really cares about you as a person. It's, "What can I do to make this person's quality of life better, to make them feel better about themselves?" And it's just a joy to come in. It's not all about the teeth. It's about the person when you're dealing with Dr. Betancourt, and I think that makes such a huge difference. John: He's all about quality. He takes the time to make patients comfortable. We do a lot of complicated dentistry and he takes the time to meticulously explain and make them comfortable with the procedure that's being done. Amber: I would say he probably is the most compassionate dentist I've ever worked for. He really, truly cares about how they feel when they walk out the door, if they're truly happy with the dentistry that we've provided to them. He's great to us girls. We couldn't have asked for a better dentist to work for. He's just really been a great employer.
