Covid-19 Update

April 24, 2020

We are excited to announce that we will re-open for dental care starting Wednesday, April 28th! Governor Polis announced that our state is transitioning from the “Stay at Home Order” to a “Safer at Home Order”. Earlier this week Larimer County also approved dental offices to re-open as long as pre-cautionary measure have been implemented. We have implemented their recommendations as well as our own procedures to keep everyone healthy. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety! Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and this is one area where we are constantly making improvements.  Besides our infection control procedures we have made several other office changes to keep you safe. We understand that some of you may want to delay or reschedule your appointments and we are happy to do this for you. Please give us a call and we will find a time that is convenient. With our additional safety procedures in place and your cooperation we feel that we can provide great care in a safe environment.

 Firstly, how we schedule patients has changed. We are staggering the schedule to limit the number of people in the office as well as to promote social distancing. Of the 5 treatment rooms we have, we are currently only using 3 to increase the distance between everyone. In the reception area we have spaced our chairs out, leaving 6 feet between them. You may notice that this area will no longer have magazines, coffee, or bottled water since these items are difficult to clean and disinfect. When checking out we have taped blue squares on the carpet letting everyone know where to stand. This will help keep both other patients and employees a safe distance apart. In between appointments we are using hospital grade disinfectant to clean all surfaces in both our treatment rooms as well as in the front office, bathrooms and reception area, and these areas are being disinfected on the hour.  

Meet Andy Maples, DDS

Loveland, CO dentist, Dr. Andy Maples

Dr. Andy Maples earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the Creighton University School of Dentistry. He received several awards while at Creighton including: The Inaugural Dr. Simpson Award for Excellence in Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry, The Department of General Dentistry Award and The American Association of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Award.

Dr. Maples is a dedicated lifelong learner including studying at the Kois Center. He has completed numerous hours of continuing education and advanced dental study. Dr. Maples has been especially interested in continuing his study of implantology and other aesthetic restorative dentistry methods.

He and his team have received several recognitions, including: 

  • 5280 Top Dentist (2017): To receive this award, Dr. Maples and his team were nominated by peers and acknowledged as top providers based on the quality of their care, use of in-office technology, and patient results. 
  • Best of Loveland (2017-2018): During this city-wide competition, patients nominated Dr. Maples and his team for the award, and West Lake Dental received the most votes both years. 

In June of 2018, Dr. Maples also received his fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry. In order to reach FAGD status, a general dentist must: 

  • Be recognized by other general dentists as a leader 
  • Exemplify the importance of quality continuing dental education 
  • Complete a minimum of 500 continuing education credit hours 
  • Pass a comprehensive exam
  • Be a member of the Academy of General Dentistry for three continuous years 

While the state only requires dentists to complete 15 hours of continuing education to maintain their license, Dr. Maples usually completes over 100 hours per year, far exceeding these standards. 

Dr. Maples grew up in Colorado, and he earned his undergraduate degree from Colorado State University. An avid outdoorsman and fitness enthusiast, Dr. Maples enjoys hiking fourteeners and competing in triathlons. Besides being outdoors, spending time with his wife Lauren and kids Collin and Mia is what he enjoys doing the most.
