Again, your health and safety and the health and safety of others are important to us.
The CU Dental clinics are open for limited care. If you have an upcoming appointment, a member of our CU Dental team will reach out to you by emailing and calling you.
We are doing a phased reopening, so we will have limited availability and will be handling more urgent needs first. Our student clinics will be providing limited routine dental hygiene appointments. Our other clinics will resume this treatment at a later date. Again, we will notify you via email or phone—when we are providing more treatment options.
If you do come to our clinic, you will see some changes at your next appointment. We did this for your safety and the safety of our dental providers.
Added Safety Measures
Your health and safety remain our top priority. We know this is a time of uncertainty. We want to assure you that we are following our local, state, and federal health authorities' guidance when it comes to proper safety protocols.
What to Expect Before/Day of Your Appointment
Appointment Confirmation: Our office will contact you two days before your appointment to confirm.
Health Screening Questions: We will also call you the day before your appointment to ask health screening questions and going over pandemic safety protocols.
If your answer is “yes” to any of the following, please contact your clinic to reschedule:
Have you had ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS (not related to hay fever or seasonal allergies)?:
- Have you had close personal contact with known or suspected COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days or anyone who is symptomatic? If yes, what is the most recent date on which that patient had contact with someone who has been diagnosed?
- Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
- Do you have an essential accompanying visitor at this appointment? If yes, what is the relation to the patient?
Virtual Check-In: On the day of your appointment, you will need to call your clinic before exiting your vehicle or being dropped off for your virtual check-in. Virtual check-in will happen 15-30 minutes before your appointment, depending on your clinic. You’ll be asked those same health screening questions again.
Be Prompt: We ask you to be on-time for your appointment. If you’re late, we may need to reschedule your appointment. Please call your clinic if there is an issue.
