COVID-19 Updates

*4/2/20

Dear Patients,

We would like to update you on recent recommendations put forth by Governor Evers and the
Wisconsin Dental Association. They are in agreement in that we will continue to postpone
elective dental care until April 24. Please know that we are still available for dental
emergencies and if you need to contact us our office number is 715-381-5556.

We will contact patients who have scheduled treatment on a week by week basis to get you
rescheduled at a date that we will hopefully be seeing all of our wonderful patients again. We
miss all of you and hope to see everyone soon!

Dear Patients,

Your health and wellness is our top priority. With new recommendations coming in on an

almost daily basis in the ever changing COVID-19 spread, we are constantly reviewing ways to

help keep our patients and communities safe. As health care professionals, we are trying to

make well informed decisions that will protect our staff and patients.

 

As of March 17, our office will be following recommendations put forth by the American Dental

Association and Wisconsin Dental Association this week which is to postpone any elective dental

procedures but be available for emergency dental care for the next few weeks. Our office will start

these policies starting on March 18 until April 5.  We plan to resume normal patient care starting

April 6 but will notify you of any changes. We apologize for inconveniences this may cause in your

daily schedules.

 

We are looking to slow the spread of COVID-19 and hopefully we can work together to keep

our communities healthy. Please call our office at 715-381-5556 in the event of a dental

emergency.

Dear Valued Patients,

Your overall health and wellness has always been our highest priority. We appreciate the growing
concern with COVID-19 within our communities. After evaluating the most current information
and reviewing all published guidelines, we remain confident in our ability to provide dental care
in a safe and healthy environment at Grandview Dental.
We are implementing the following additional precautions and recommendations to our patients
and team members in light of COVID-19.
1. We recommend any patient stay home if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
• Use your best judgment. If you are sick, we will help you reschedule. If you are uncertain,
please call our office prior to your appointment.
• If you plan to attend your appointment and would feel most comfortable calling from your
vehicle when you arrive, we will mark you as “here” in our computer system and will call
you back when your room is ready so you can go straight from the vehicle to your treatment
room.
2. We continue to maintain a clean and safe environment complying with OSHA and CDC
infection control guidelines.
• We have standard protocols in place to disinfect all surfaces and patient contact areas. All
instruments used during patient care are sterilized and those instruments/products that cannot
are safely disposed of after use. We continue to use personal protective equipment (e.g.
masks, gloves, safety glasses) to keep you and our team members safe.
• We have expanded and increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection of all common
areas and facilities.
• We have temporarily removed items that post a risk for cross-contamination (e.g. magazines,
toys, floss samples) from our common areas.
3. We support a healthy work environment for our employees. We have asked our staff to not be
present at the office if they are experiencing any symptoms.
We are closely monitoring updates updates from the Centers for Disease Control, the World
Health Organization and the American Dental Association and will continue to seek guidance
from these agencies and local public health officials. With new information we will make the
necessary adjustments to our operations and will keep you informed of any changes.
Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in the care you receive at Grandview Dental.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office.

Dr. Chris Buege
