Dentistry at the Center is temporarily closed to non-emergency care per the Minnesota Board of Dentistry

As expected, the guidance regarding COVID-19 is rapidly changing. The two governing bodies for dentistry in Minnesota (the Minnesota Board of Dentistry and the Minnesota Dental Association) have issued an official joint statement. They are strongly recommending that all dentists practicing in Minnesota suspend nonessential dental care for the next 14 days to help slow the spread of the virus.  

 

We are taking this recommendation very serious and we want to do the right thing for our community. This means that Dentistry at the Center will be open for emergency care only. This helps prevent our hospital and urgent care clinics from becoming overwhelmed. Patients who present with a dental emergency to our clinic will be screened for the COVID-19 virus per the CDC recommendations. 

 

Please call our clinic at (320)762-5216 if you have any further questions or a dental concern. We are doing everything we can to help our community with this crisis!
