Covid 19 Update
Doty Island Dental is currently closed to all elective dental treatment. We are still available for dental emergencies, such as pain or infection. Call our office to contact us with all emergencies.
Per guidance from the American Dental Association issued on March 16, 2020, we have been asked to close for all non-emergent treatment. The ADA requested an initial closure of three weeks, which would give us a tentative re-opening on May 27, 2020. We will be calling patients scheduled during this time period to reschedule. We realize this is an inconvenience, and we sincerely apologize. If you have a dental emergency such as pain, infection of loss of a temporary please call the office, we will either be in the office or you will be re-directed to a secondary number. We are still here to help.
Per updated guidance from the Wisconsin Dental Association, elective care is suspended for the duration of Governor Ever's "Safer at Home" directive. We will be rescheduling patients on a rolling basis, and have a tentative reopening date of May 27, 2020.
