West End Dental Inc and Dr. Krippaehne’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak:
The American Dental Association has recommended and the Oregon Governor has ordered that all non-emergency procedures by dentist cease. The order is an attempt to preserve protective equipment, such as gloves and masks for the COVID-19 patients.

In an attempt to keep any dental emergency out of our hospitals' emergency departments, dental offices are encouraged to treat dental emergencies through virtual communication when possible.

In response, West End Dental Inc and Dr. Krippaehne are fully prepared to provide teledentistry to those in need, including new or established patients.

If you or someone you know has an urgent dental concern, please contact Polly (office manager) on her cell phone 503-267-4893 to schedule a teledental visit with Dr. Krippaehne.

If you would like to contact our office with a non urgent matter, please call the office at 503-224-7815. You may also fax or email with non urgent matters. Fax 503-222-0029, email info@west-end-dental.com.
