COVID-19


At the direction of the Alabama Department of Health, the ADA and the CDC, our office will close on Thursday, March 19th @ 12 p.m.

We plan to reopen on Monday, April 13th @ 8 a.m.

The nature of our work causes us to be at a very high risk of exposure. While we employ precautions to keep everyone safe, it has become necessary to postpone ALL NON-URGENT dental appointments. Additionally, we will not be able to take any new patients at this time.

We know these changes create a hardship but we are committed to protecting our patients, our staff and our community.

If you have questions or a dental emergency (urgent symptoms), you can contact us at baggettdental@gmail.com.
