We are currently operating under limited conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are in pain or have a dental emergency, please call Dr. Bunting directly at 215-264-9660 and we will schedule a virtual consultation. We don't want anyone to be suffering from pain, swelling or dental infection at this time.
We are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe. Upon careful evaluation of the American Dental Association recommendations, CDC guidelines, and mandate from our Governor, we have decided to restrict treatment to virtual consultations through June.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We feel that an abundance of caution is necessary at this time. If you have an upcoming preventative hygiene or non-urgent appointment, we will be contacting you to postpone your appointment until after Mid June.
Please take care of yourselves and your oral health, and share your smiles with those around you. :)
Dr. Bunting is available for any emergencies that may arise. Please call Dr. Bunting directly at 215-264-9660. We are all in this together and look forward to seeing you all soon!
Stay Well and Be Safe! ♥
Dr. Steven Bunting, Designer of Smiles

What Designer Of Smiles is Doing to Ensure Your Safety
Steven Bunting, DDS
We are taking precautions to help protect you, the community and ourselves. Your safety and health have always been and remain our top priority.
Reception and front offices are disinfected at least twice a day. We are cleaning all surfaces, furniture, floors, couches and electronics with top-grade disinfecting wipes and sprays.
Patient care rooms are cleaned and sterilized after each patient. Surfaces, electronics, floors, computer mice and keyboards are cleaned with medical-grade disinfecting cleaners. All instruments and equipment are first cleaned and then sterilized using a heat and pressurized autoclave process.
Provider and Patient Protocols:
- All providers disinfect their hands upon entering and then again before leaving the clinical suite.
- Patients are asked to use Clorox AloeGuard Antimicrobial Soap on their hands upon entering the clinical suite
- Patients are asked to rinse with Peroxyl upon sitting prior to any dental work.
- Patient and team safety equipment will be sterilized prior to each procedure.
We are asking patients and people who accompany patients to call the office ahead of their appointment and inform us if they have any symptoms of any respiratory infection (cough, runny nose, fever). We ask you to reschedule until the patient is symptom-free for 14 days. If family members are sick, we ask you to reschedule until everyone is symptom-free or has been ruled out by medical testing to be free of communicable viruses.
This is a developing situation, and we will be monitoring CDC guidelines and recommendations continuously. We are committed to providing an environment for optimal health for you and your loved ones.
