Dental Clinic Update
The Dental Clinic is now open for routine care and hygiene appointments. Call the clinic to schedule an appointment at 541-888-6433. Due to continued concerns over COVID-19 transmission in our community, we will only be able to see a limited number of patients each day. For us to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff, we will have all patients remain in their vehicle and call the clinic from their car upon arrival. There are currently four designated parking spaces for “Dental Patient Parking Only.” Please be sure to use one of these four spaces. A staff member will then come to the vehicle and complete a COVID-19 screening process. All additional paperwork will be filled out by the patient in their car after the screening process is complete.
It is mandatory that all patients wear an appropriate mask when being escorted into the building, as well as all times while in the clinic other than when dental work is being performed. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you. In addition, you will be required to wash/sanitize your hands.
We will not be allowing anyone to enter the building on their own, nor will we allow anyone to wait in our waiting room. We are asking all patients to call the dental clinic after your appointment to schedule further treatment needs.
These measures are being taken to lessen the potential for exposure of COVID-19. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these unprecedented times.

What is a Dental Health Aide Therapist? DHATs work under the supervision of a dentist and are part of the larger dental team which includes dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants. By the time they begin practicing, dental therapists have more clinical experience in their small number of procedures than dentistry school graduates.
Dental therapists are experts in routine and preventive care. They are trained to provide 46 procedures, but in addition to providing routine care, dental therapists play the critical role of patient educator, bringing greater awareness to the importance of good oral health.
