CELEBRATING SMILES COVID-19 UPDATE
Celebrating Smiles is proud to help the fight against Covid-19 by offering Rapid Covid-19 testing. The testing and analysis takes place completely OUTSIDE our dental office. A team member will meet you at your car. A sample is taken from the ANTERIOR nasal cavities so it is more comfortable. The sample NEVER comes into our dental office.
The Cue testing system utilizes a thermonuclear technology to detect SARS-COV-2 RNA. The Cue test has 98-99% sensitivity and specificity for the virus. You may receive your results within 30 minutes via text, email, or a phone call. For more information about Cue Testing click here.
The cost of the test is $150 and must be paid before your test. We can provide a medical claim form for you to seek reimbursement from your insurance company.
