Great News! We have officially received word that Alabama dental offices can start reopening tomorrow! Along with this news came a list of Covid-19 inspired requirements that each office must abide by to help ensure the safety of staff and patients while in the office. We will be working diligently today and tomorrow to implement these protocols and plan to start seeing patients on Monday, May 4.

I know many of you are anxious to schedule your next appointment, whether it be to continue treatment already in progress, have a loose bracket or wire poke repaired, have your braces or Invisalign treatment started, have you braces or invisalign removed because treatment is complete, or schedule a New Patient appointment for yourself or your child. As a result, we anticipate a high call volume over the coming days. Please bear with us! If you call and do not receive an answer keep trying, or simply leave a voicemail and I assure you we will call you back. If you are already a patient of record and had an appointment scheduled during the shutdown we will be calling you to reschedule your appointment over the coming week. Since no two orthodontic treatments are the same and some require more attention than others, these patients will be given priority when scheduling appointments.

If you are not yet a patient in our office but would like to schedule a New Patient appointment with us please call 256-638-9800 (Rainsville) or 256-575-2410 (Scottsboro) and one of our amazing staff will be happy to help!

We look forward to seeing you all again!


Dr. Carter, and the Carter Orthodontics Team.
