In an effort to get to know more about the people who make Round Rock such a great place to live, I am resurrecting a series I did years ago called “5 Questions With….” As I did in the past, I will be asking a few questions of interesting people of Round Rock – people who work hard behind the scenes, people who strive to make our city great, people who make fun events & places possible in our city, and just cool folks you need to know.
But I wanted to take it a step further and reach out to as many businesses owners in Round Rock as I can. I want to catch up with them to learn how their business is doing under these conditions. And see if & how we can help keep them in businesses. I think you will be happy to hear some of the unique ways that businesses have adapted to the changes or are making plans to offer new products and services once they do open.
I have worked with Wildflower Orthodontics for the past few years and I have to say, they are one of the most fun Orthodontics offices I have ever seen!! And they didn’t let this pandemic slow them down! Take a look at all the fun hey have been proving their patients with…..atleast until they can get back to straightening teeth (but I’m hoping the fun on social media doesn’t stop!).
What is your business?
Wildflower Orthodontics. Specializing in braces and Invisalign since 2005.
What is the status of your business now?
Closed except for emergencies. We’re working hard to make the necessary changes that will allow us to reopen as soon as it’s safe.
What do you miss most about your business?
We have a lot of fun at our office and it is hard not being able to interact with our Wildflower family.
What are the plans for the future for Wildflower Orthodontics?
We are committed to providing a safe atmosphere for our patients and staff. To that end, we’ve invested in an air filtration system, vacuums to reduce aerosols, and will reduce the number of patients in the office at a time, along with following all of the OSHA and CDC guidelines. We’re also offering virtual consultations so we can get to know each other without the fear of virus transmission. This way our patients & the people of Round Rock can still get the smile they want in a safe environment while still having fun & listening to good music in a relaxing atmosphere.
What has been a few of your favorite “at-home” activities during this time?
We’ve started a new series “Cooking with Dr. Giasi” which you can find on our social media accounts. We feel that staying connected with our patients (while talking about something other than orthodontic treatment) is important and beneficial during this time.
Bonus – what’s the first thing you will do once the Stay-at-Home mandate is lifted?
Commit to the care of our current patients while also letting prospective patients know that it’s safe to come to our office and receive treatment.
