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.  

Your Loveland Emergency Dentist is Here for You!

If you or a loved one is experiencing severe oral pain or trauma, please don't hesitate to contact Loveland emergency dentist, Dr. Andy Maples and the rest of our team. At West Lake Dental, we provide a variety of services designed to effectively treat everything from minor decay to multiple missing teeth. Better yet, we do our best to see every emergency case the very same day as your initial call so that you can experience the relief you deserve.

In the time between your initial call and your arrival at our office, there are actions you can take to preserve the health and vitality of your injured smile. Here are some valuable tips for the most common dental emergency cases we see:

Broken Tooth

Rinse the tooth with warm water and then hold a cold compress on your cheek as you make your way to our office. This should help to reduce any swelling that may occur.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If you still have the tooth, rinse it very carefully to remove stray debris while making sure that natural tissue stays attached. Once this is done, attempt to place it back into its socket. If you can’t, put the tooth in a cup of milk and make sure to bring it with you to our office. There, our team can determine whether reattachment is possible.

Bad Toothache

Are you sure that a piece of debris isn't causing the discomfort? Rinse and floss the area thoroughly to make sure. If the pain persists, contact our office so that we can schedule an appointment.

Lost a Temporary Crown

Do you still have the temporary? If not, gently dry the affected tooth and apply a small amount of toothpaste or dental wax to the top so that you can reattach it. This should provide you with some relief until you’re able to be seen.

Schedule a Same-Day Appointment

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, don't hesitate to contact West Lake Dental for the advanced care, friendly staff, and quality attention you deserve. We’ll do our best to see you as soon as possible!
