COVID-19 Protocols

We wanted to update you on some changes we have made due to COVID-19. Although many things have changed, one thing remains the same, our commitment to your safety. Some changes you will notice at our office include:
• We will ask you COVID-19 screening questions and provide instructions for your visit when confirming your appointment.
• The Minnesota Board of Dentistry continues to require All persons (vaccinated and unvaccinated) to wear a mask in dental offices.
• We are not currently offering coffee, magazines or children’s toys in our waiting room as those items are difficult to properly clean and disinfect. The number of chairs in our waiting room has been reduced.
• Plexiglass panels are installed at check-out stations.
• To optimize infection control, we are selecting one dentist to perform all hygiene exams on rotating days of the week. This change only affects which dentist examines your teeth during your cleaning. As always, you choose which dentist completes your dental work. If you strongly prefer to see a certain dentist for your exam, simply schedule your cleaning on that dentist’s exam day. Our dentists have consistent clinical practice philosophies, so you can be assured of uniform treatment recommendations and care.
