An Update On COVID-19 From Personal Care Dentistry

These past weeks have been challenging ones. We know like all of us, you are focused on keeping your families safe while balancing your daily life. COVID-19 has every one of us in protective mode.

We have suspended all hygiene services and all non-emergency dental procedures until some time in May. We are taking these measures as part of our efforts to protect your health and the health of our employees, and based on advice from the Minnesota Board of Dentistry. We have been contacting patients who had hygiene dental visits scheduled before then to reschedule their appointments.

However, we will be accepting dental emergencies. We will have a small dental care team available to help you if you’ve cracked or lost a tooth, if you have an infection, or a sudden onset of pain in your gums or mouth. We are seeing emergency patients on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we are seeing emergency patients from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. To schedule an emergency appointment, please call our office between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at (651) 636-0655 and we will work to get you scheduled for an appointment. We WILL NOT be accepting walk-in dental emergencies – you MUST CALL and make an appointment. In addition, one of our staff members will be monitoring a cell phone until 9 p.m. on weekdays and on the weekend for dental emergency calls after hours.

Wishing you the best in the weeks ahead,

Dr. Walter Hunt, Dr. Kyle Hunt, Dr. Andrew Heinisch and the team at Personal Care Dentistry
