West End Dental Inc Reopening
West End Dental is excited to begin seeing patients safely. These are unprecedented times, and we want to reassure you that we have taken every precaution to ensure your safety and wellbeing during your visit.

•  Taking temperatures and pulse oximetry measurements of every patient and caregiver before they enter our clinic.
•  Screening each person entering the building for any symptoms and redirecting them if symptoms are present.
•  Modifying our waiting rooms and how we deliver care to honor social distancing.
•  All caregivers will be masked as well as patients anytime they are not receiving treatment.
•  Increased cleaning procedures, frequency, and improved products for cleaning
•  We also request that patients please arrive as close to their appointment time as they can and that they please not bring additional persons to their appointment if possible.

We ask that you understand that our provider's time is more crucial than ever and request that you be prompt to your appointment, arriving no sooner or later than your appointment time. Understand that if you cancel your appointment less than 48 hours in advance or are more than 15 minutes late to your visit, we may charge your account a $50.00 non-refundable fee.

icon quotes

"West End Dental and Dr. Krippaehne have been my go-to for many years now. Their front office is extremely professional, letting me know any changes with my insurance coverage or providing estimates for work. The office has been remodeled to minimize Covid risk. My appt this week felt safe from start to finish. I wasn't a huge fan of going to the dentist before seeing Dr. Krippaehne at West End. He's done a significant amount of work for me and it's always top-notch." ~Matthew B.
