Effective March 18, 2020

We have been closely monitoring the updates related to COVID-19. With the recent development of community spread in our area, we will only be seeing patients with emergent needs. All elective and non-urgent care will be postponed. This comes from the recommendation of the American Dental Association, the Iowa Dental Association and the Iowa Dental Board.

This has been a very difficult decision for us, but with careful thought and deliberation on our responsibility as healthcare professionals and our duties and commitments to our patients and their families we feel this is the best decision.

Dr. Riley will be available and on-call to triage and treat emergencies as needed. Please call our office at 515.369.2039 and use the telephone prompts.

If you have an appointment in the coming days, our staff will be reaching out to you.
