Yes, we are still open. However, due to the governor’s most recent Executive Order (No. 20-10) dentists across Oregon are required to postpone all elective and non-urgent dental procedures at this time. The intention of this drastic Order is to preserve limited personal protective equipment (“PPE” – gloves, masks, etc.) supplies for medical practitioners working directly with Covid-19 patients and others with potentially life-threatening conditions and to help limit the spread of Covid-19 as much as possible. According to the Order, "A procedure or surgery is exempt from the limitations set forth in paragraph 1(a) of this Executive Order if a three-month delay in the procedure or surgery would put the patient at risk of irreversible harm."

Criteria for determining whether irreversible harm exists include but are not limited to

  1. threat to the patient’s life.
  2. threat of irreversible harm to the patient’s physical or mental health.
  3. threat of permanent dysfunction of an extremity or organ system.
  4. risk of metastasis or progression of staging.
  5. risk of rapidly worsening to severe symptoms (time sensitive).” We are here to help you as much as we are allowed.

Please contact us at the office (541)273-6100 if you are experiencing any emergent, urgent, or time sensitive dental issues.

If you are uncertain if your condition qualifies as an exception to this Executive Order, please contact us and we would be glad to help make that determination. These are challenging times. We hope you and your families are well and appreciate the measures you are taking to help limit the spread and impact of this challenging new virus.

Dr. Moore and Dr. Fox would like to let you know that we are attempting to follow the “Best Practices” recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) as it pertains to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this point, the OHA is attempting to minimize the spread of the virus by limiting exposure. Because it is nearly impossible to tell when an individual is infected, we are currently treating patients as if all are currently infected with the virus. If you have any symptoms that could confirm that you are currently infected or have been in contact with anyone who has been infected, we would ask for you to stay home and reduce the risk of transmission.

We are attempting to keep our facility as clean as possible. We are also attempting to protect ourselves and our staff from acquiring (and subsequently transmitting) the virus. Dentistry fits into the category of high risk due to our proximity to the patient and exposure to fluids. We will do everything we can to minimize aerosols and the potential for fluid transfer.

Until the OHA suggests that we close or eliminate “non-essential” visits, we will continue to be here to serve our patients and will update you should our situation change.

Clean Teeth in Six Seconds. Too Good to be True?

September 30, 2013
The makers of a new 3D printing product claim they can fabricate a custom toothbrush that will clean teeth completely in just 6 seconds of biting down on the device.  An interesting idea, only time will tell if the toothbrush proves to be as effective as currently popular toothbrushes or becomes cost effective enough to reach a mass market.
