NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE
Dear valued patients and families,
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff, and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe.
In light of the evolving pandemic and out of consideration for the safety of you, your family, and our staff, we are following the ADA and IDA recommendations and closing our practice for the next three weeks to non-emergency issues. If you have an appointment scheduled during this time, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.
Dr. Herrick will be on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, please call our office as you normally would and we will assist you, or call (515)709-9513, our emergency line.
We did not make this decision lightly. Our team will be monitoring this ongoing pandemic and evaluate when it is appropriate for us to return our normal business hours.
Thank you for your understanding of this situation and we look for to continuing to meet your dental needs in the future.

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It's a major cause of tooth loss in adults and because it is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth, causing tooth decay. The warning signs of early periodontal disease (at this stage called gingivitis) are gums that bleed easily, and are generally red, swollen, and tender. The disease at this stage is reversible and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily brushing, rinsing, and flossing.
Remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day, clean between your teeth with floss daily, eat a balanced diet, and schedule routine dental checkups to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles! We're always accepting new patients. Give us a call to schedule your visit today!
