COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Clinics Temporarily Closed until April 6

 

Dental Associates Patients:

We understand and respect that many of our patients are concerned regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Wisconsin and beyond. We are continuing to closely monitor the situation with your overall health and safety in mind. 

From March 18, to April 6, 2020, our clinics will cease providing care for all elective procedures including hygiene appointments, routine procedures, and orthodontic care. Four clinics will be able to provide emergency care by appointment only, including oral surgery to active patients of record. 

Our team made this difficult decision based on the recommendation from the American Dental Association (ADA), Wisconsin Dental Association (WDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our priority is ensuring the health and safety of our staff and patients, and all decisions made are surrounding this effort. At this time, we plan to reopen all clinics on April 6, 2020, but will notify you if this date changes. 

 

What if I have an appointment between March 18 and April 6? 

If you have an appointment for the following care between now and April 6, a member of our team will be calling you to reschedule your appointment. 

  • Dental hygiene appointments 
  • Routine exams 
  • Orthodontic care 
  • Elective procedures that can be placed on hold, including, but not limited to, teeth extractions and root canals 

 

How we’re protecting our patients 

If your oral health care needs determine a visit to our clinics is absolutely necessary, please know we are taking every precaution to protect your overall health and wellness to uphold our mission and treat everyone like family.  

Clinic cleanliness and sanitization: 

  • We will clean commonly used spaces every hour. This includes reception desks, waiting areas, and wash stations. 
  • We will sanitize restrooms more frequently. 
  • We will refill hand sanitizer fixtures throughout clinics more frequently. 
  • We will continue to be vigilant in the sanitization and cleanliness of our operatories. 

 

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate additional measures to support our patients and communities as needs arise.
