DDS Dentures + Implant Solutions® has provided millions of patients with access to affordable dental care in a safe and caring environment. That’s something that has never changed – and something that never will. As we continue to monitor COVID-19 in real-time, we remain committed to ensuring everything we do is grounded in the safety and well-being of our patients, staff and the community.
With consideration for state “stay-at-home” order status, dental service mandates, including recommendations of the American Dental Association, and the availability of Personal Protective Equipment, many of our practices are safely open and providing care for patients.Visit our Frequently Asked Questions section to learn more about what we’re doing to keep you safe.
The current status of our locations consists of the following three scenarios:
Safely open for your care.
Some of our practices in states where “stay-at-home” mandates have been lifted are open and operating under new enhanced safety protocols, which include: use of Personal Protective Equipment (surgical masks, face shields, gloves, gowns etc) as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), additional stringent cleaning and sanitation procedures, and implementing social distancing guidelines.
Safely providing emergency care only.
Some of our practices are open for emergency care only, as they follow state and local “stay-at-home” orders that have not been lifted. If you have a dental-related emergency, we urge you to call your local practice. View emergency guidelines
Some of our practices are temporarily closed as they follow state and local “stay-at-home” orders that have not been lifted. We will continue to monitor the local status and open each practice only when it is safe for patients, staff and the community. For existing patients, these practices continue to meet your emergency care needs. Please call your local practice if you have an emergency. View emergency guidelines
