I hope this letter finds you well. Though it has been a difficult 2020, we at Eunson Dental are happy to report that we have persevered, successfully and safely caring for the more than 900 members of our patient family. This time for us has been one of extreme gratitude, recognizing how lucky we are to have the faith and trust of so many of you. It is amazing what three months of forced closure will do to help you recognize what brings you joy! For us, our joy is in our relationships with all of you.
For those who have visited the practice in the last six months, we thank you for your confidence. Your overwhelmingly positive feedback has kept our engines running! Though our days have never been more difficult, and we miss the handshakes and hugs, we also recognize the services that we are providing help our patients’ immune systems remain strong. Maintaining healthy habits is one of the best ways to combat disease during this challenging time, and we are thankful to be able to play a role.
Though our processes (and our apparel!) are different, the high quality of our care remains the same. For your safety, we will continue for the foreseeable future to exercise the following COVID safety protocols: performing digital surveys, phone and on-site screenings, minimizing patient-to-patient interaction by redirecting traffic flow in our space, and eliminating waiting room usage with strategic scheduling. In order to minimize airborne contaminants, we ask you to wear a mask and encourage you to bring to your appointment only items that are vital, e.g., keys, method of payment, and phones for scheduling. Though these safety measures do require extra time and effort, they help keep us and those in our care healthy. We appreciate your understanding, and we will continue to perfect our processes as we stay updated on the science of COVID-19.
Good news! Eunson Dental is pleased to introduce two new members of our team: Cindy McLaughlin and Dawn Wyzen. Both are great additions to Eunson Dental; their dental assistant know-how and extended education and training in additional dental procedures such as placing fillings, tooth polishing, and application of sealants and fluoride are invaluable.
Cindy was born and raised in Springfield, Pennsylvania, where she graduated from Springfield High School. She worked as an office manager and bartender for many years before returning to school to obtain her Expanded Functions Dental Assistant license. Cindy works side by side with Dr. Eunson, and she is committed to providing quality care to all our patients. She strives to make every patient feel comfortable and content while in the office.
Dawn is a graduate of the Dental Assistant, Radiology and Expanded Function Dental Assisting programs at Harcum College. She’s been working in the dental field for nearly 25 years. Dawn is passionate about helping patients feel comfortable during their appointments and improving their oral health.

Alas, we say a fond farewell to Joann, my longtime chairside dental assistant. Every day Joann brought a great attitude, skills and kindness to care for our wonderful patients. So often I would hear ‘You two work so well together.’ I fully credit that to Joann - she always anticipated what I would need next and had it ready to go. She made it a priority to always do her best for our patients, our team and our practice. Patients were well cared for both in the chair and with all the follow up that goes along with more complex dental visits. After 10 years, Joann is retiring and looking forward to spending more time with family and friends. Both personally and professionally, we will all miss seeing Joann in the office!
As always, please feel free to reach out if you have questions about our current methods and practices. We recognize and respect everyone’s feelings regarding their personal safety and comfort in seeking care, and we hope we can be a resource for information and guidance. We trust that soon we will be able to see you all again without the threat of COVID’s wrath. Until then, be well and enjoy the changing seasons out your window!
Dr. Eunson and the entire team at Eunson Dental (Chris, Jess, Kelly, Vicky, Whitney, Cindy and Dawn)
