COVID-19 Update

Minnesota Governor Walz, in agreement with the Minnesota Board of Dentistry, has closed down all dental clinics in the State of Minnesota for all Non-Emergent Dental Treatment to preserve the state’s PPEs (personal protective equipment) for hospitals and critical health care workers. This mandate will be in effect for the duration of Minnesota’s Stay At Home Order.

As a result, we are mandated to close our doors until April 13, 2020. 

*** We will be taking care of our patients experiencing a dental emergency during this time

During the closure we will be available on a limited basis and we are offering the following services:

  • If you have a dental emergency: Call the office number at 651-322-7373 and you will be instructed on how to reach the dentist on call that day
  • For Non-Urgent questions, concerns, comments: 
    • ​We will reply to you within 24 hours Monday-Friday
    • Email us at: [email protected]
    • Call us and leave a voice mail message at: 651-322-7373

More information about COVID-19

The MNDA requested that dental offices close to non-essential and non-urgent patient needs. Summit Dental will be open for emergency and urgent needs only starting on March 17th through April 13th. We understand that this is an inconvenience and will work to reschedule your appointments as soon as possible. We will likely add additional hours once it is considered safe to return to normal operations.

With so many news stories, it’s understandable to be concerned about the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Please know that the precautions we already take every day to prevent the spread of infection in our practice also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19. This change is not related to any increased risk in our practice but due to the public health need to reduce people being out and in contact with others.

It’s important to know that the majority of people infected with the coronavirus experience flu-like symptoms and then recover. Most people do not develop serious respiratory complications. 

Those most at risk of becoming seriously ill are elderly people and those with underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease, among others. Children, thus far, have been largely unaffected.

Here are a few things you can do on your own to help keep yourself and those around you healthy:

  • Wash your hands frequently, or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent ethyl alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes or nose to reduce the spread of germs.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow. Infections like the coronavirus spread through the tiny droplets in coughs and sneezes.
  • Stay home if you feel sick. If you have flu-like symptoms or otherwise feel unwell, stay home and rest. Call your dentist to reschedule your appointment for a later date. This will reduce the risk of spreading your illness.
