COVID-19 Update

On March 20, 2020, Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued a far-reaching Executive Order that requires Oregon dentists (along with other medical providers including doctors and veterinarians) to cease providing non-urgent care for their patients.

We are still open for emergency dental treatment.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, or have any questions, please call our office as soon as possible.

Your safety and health are our top priorities. You can rest assured that our office is safe and sterile, as we will continue to follow strict guidelines set forth by the CDC and American Dental Association for sterilization techniques and precautions. These protocols are in place to protect our patients, and our team from transmission of disease and get the care you need. Even in time of crisis, it’s important to not let a dental emergency go untreated and potentially worsen the problem.

If you have a scheduled appointment for non-emergency treatment with our office, we will contact you to reschedule your appointment.

Our office is available to you during this time for questions or concerns. If you reach us after hours, or during a time when we experience a heavy call volume, please leave us a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.

We hope that these emergency measures will soon not be needed, but until then we will continue to follow guidelines set forth by the CDC and The American Dental Association. We will continue to update you as we have more information, so please continue to check our website for more information.

Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. Rod Johnson, Dr. Joel Fast, and Dr. Rima Shaer, general family dentists serving Tigard, Durham, Bull Mountain, King City, and area
