While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

The routine in our clinics will be slightly different than it was before.  As with many businesses, you will notice a few changes.  These changes are for the safety of you, your children and our staff.  We closely follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), OSHA, MN Board of Dentistry, and the American Association of Orthodontics.  

Updated Office Procedures

  1. We ask that each patient arrive AT their appointment time and not before or after. Patients can come directly to the office where an assistant, who will be with them for their entire appointment, will greet them.
  2. Before each appointment, you will receive a text with a COVID-19 screening to complete prior to the patient appointment, or a COVID screening questionnaire (click to download and print) which can be completed for each patient. All patients and escorts will have their forehead temperature taken and recorded. Anyone that has a temperature above 100.4 ◦F will be asked to exit the office and reschedule their appointment.
  3. We ask that anyone entering the office wear a mask at all times unless asked by a staff member to remove.
  4. The brushing areas will be closed. Please thoroughly brush prior to your office visit. We will have each patient swish for 60 secs with a hydrogen peroxide rinse to reduce oral microbial population.
  5. We will update you with patient report cards to keep you informed about treatment progress.
  6. Our reception area has been greatly reduced. We will no longer have magazines, toys, or cell phone charging available and our coffee service is suspended.
  7. Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing when you are inside the office. This might mean that you may be offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We have opened additional days at our Stillwater office location to minimize schedule disruptions.
