Covid-19 Update

August 31, 2020

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and 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 continually making improvements.  Besides our standard 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.

 Some of our new procedures:

We complete a pre-screening questionnaire the day before all appointments. We ask our patients to wait in their car until the time of their appointment so that we limit the number of people in the office at any given time. We take temperatures as soon as patients arrive in the office and require all patients to wear masks while not in a treatment room. The clinical team wears two masks as well as a face shield to protect our patients. And, we have reconfigured the front desk to include plexiglass barriers and “stand stations” to show where patients should stand to follow social distancing requirements. 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. Finally, Dr. Andy regularly reviews the latest updates on how to best manage patient safety as we learn more about the virus.

We look forward to continuing to provide you with great care in the safest way possible during these unique times!

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!
