The latest guidance from the Wyoming Dental Association (WDA), American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recommend dental offices limit patient care to emergency treatment only (i.e. significant pain, trauma, infection) for the next three weeks. It is possible that this time period may be lengthened or shortened depending on events that transpire over the next three weeks.
We are available for emergency treatment. If you have a dental emergency or need dental advice, please call our office.
As things evolve, we will be using County10 and our social media to share any new information.
This decision was not made lightly, but it is necessary in order to protect our patients, staff, and community as a whole. We are hopeful that this course will allow for the most rapid return to normalcy in our community.
We will continue to evaluate the situation and determine when it is safe for us to return to our normal business operations.
