To Our Dental Group West Patients,
As we navigate through this pandemic, we want to inform you of steps we are taking to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19. As always, we continue to follow strict safety precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Starting May 1st, we will be open for our regular business hours and will be ready to meet all of your dental needs. New safety protocols have been instituted to ensure both you and our team are safe. With all of this in mind, we kindly ask you to reschedule your appointment if you are sick, have recently traveled, or have been exposed to anyone who is sick. Please contact us and we will be happy to accommodate you. There will be no penalty charge under these circumstances.
What to expect when you arrive for your scheduled appointment:
WHEN YOU ARRIVE - Upon arrival, please remain in your vehicle and call our receptionist at 419-539-2168. When we are ready, we will call you back and meet you at the front door. We will utilize a contactless thermometer to check your temperature. Of course, if you have a fever, we will ask you to reschedule.
LIMITED CONTACT WITH OTHERS - We have adjusted our schedule in order to limit the number of patients in the office at one time. This will honor the CDC social distancing guidelines.
DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT – The doctors and staff will be wearing the federally mandated array of personal protection for your safety and ours. This includes eye protection, a mask, gloves and appropriate scrubs. We have intensified our disinfection protocols for the entire office. Treatment room disinfection and sterilization protocols will be strictly adhered to.
We appreciate your understanding and support during these unusual times. Monitoring of CDC guidelines as well as the Ohio State Dental Board recommendations is ongoing.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon! Stay healthy and well.

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?
From an unexpected opening in your calendar to the need for urgent treatment for a painful toothache, there are a plethora of reasons you may want to schedule a same-day visit. The quickest way to get an appointment scheduled is to call our office. That way, one of our fantastic team members can provide you with instant help. However, if you’d prefer to request an appointment on our website, you are welcome to do that as well. Once you’ve submitted your information, our staff will reach out to you with personalized times that work for your schedule.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
Searching “dentist near me” in Google may initially seem like the best way to find the answer to this question. However, looking through pages of search results can quickly become overwhelming. That’s why we recommend defining what you are looking for first. Is it a practice that accepts your dental insurance? One that offers sedation dentistry to help with your dental-related anxiety? From there, you can focus on the feel of the practice by reading their patient reviews and team bios. Feel free to look at photos and watch the videos on their website so you can get even more insight into what it’s like to be a patient at their practice.
What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?
Over the years, the misconception that dental care is expensive has grown. In reality, neglect is expensive. Not attending your biannual checkup and cleaning may initially seem like a great way to save money, but the short and long-term consequences can be disastrous for your oral health and your wallet. Plus, many dental insurance plans cover up to 100% of the cost of preventive care. And, if you don’t have a dental plan, there are always low-to-no interest financing options that can break up even the most extensive treatment into manageable chunks.
What Level of Education Is Required to Be a Dentist?
To practice dentistry in the U.S., dentists must first complete their bachelor’s degree before earning their Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from one of the 67 accredited dental schools. During this time, they receive extensive training both in and out of the classroom to ensure maximum proficiency. Each year, they must continue to stay abreast of the latest technology and techniques by completing numerous continuing education hours.
