Notice to Future Patients

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions, we are not accepting new patients at this time.

Your appointment may be affected. Please read all this information carefully.

If you currently feel sick, please reschedule your dental appointment and call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.

Please also reschedule your appointment if, in the past two weeks, you have either been in close contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19, or have returned to the United States from an area affected by the coronavirus disease. Right now this list includes China, Iran, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong. However, the list of countries continues to change, so it’s a good idea to check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for updates on the affected countries.

To reschedule an appointment or if you have questions, call our main phone number at 402.280.5990.

If you are in pain or have an infection you will be seen in our Acute Care Clinic or we will provide you access to an emergent care facility. Also, you have the option of utilizing our After Hours Extraction Only Clinic on Tuesdays or Fridays from 6-9 pm if you are experiencing pain or swelling.
