3/20/2020 Update

To our patients and friends,
Dental Health Care Center is available to our community.  We are currently seeing dental emergencies only until further notice in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.  If you do have a dental emergency or questions about your dental needs, please call us at 612-861-7109.  At this time our team is responding to phone calls and emails.  We want to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by limiting contact and providing responsible care during an unprecedented time.  If you have a scheduled appointment, one of our friendly team members will be reaching out to you.
Our decisions are made in accordance with recommendations by the MN Board of Dentistry and the recent update to Governor Walz’s Executive Order.  We will notify you as appropriate to safely provide needed care.
In gratitude,
Drs. Woell, Rhode, Thao, and the team at Dental Health Care Center

3/12/2020: To our patients and friends – We are open for business as normal.

At Dental Health Care Center we are closely monitoring the public health news, particularly the novel COVID-19 outbreak. We want to assure you that the safety of our patients and team members is our first priority.

In addition to following the latest information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC), we are staying up to date on the latest guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Minnesota Board of Dentistry. In an effort to keep everyone safe, and in accordance with CDC guidelines, we are asking our patients with a respiratory infection and flu-like symptoms to postpone non-emergency treatment until no longer contagious. If urgent dental treatment is needed, please contact us so that we can work on a case by case basis to determine appropriate treatment and safety precautions.

We want to extend our sincere thanks for your understanding as we learn more about the virus each day.

In gratitude,

Dr. Woell, Rhode, Thao, and the team at Dental Health Care Center
