Dear Valued Patients and Friends,

It’s an incredibly busy time of year! Graduation, prom, baseball games – you name it, we are all living in a (somewhat) post COVID era. While it is exciting to finally be getting together again with loved ones, COVID precautions remain in Minnesota medical facilities, including our dental office. We continue to follow guidelines of the Minnesota Department of Health, which includes keeping masks on while in the office, except on the patient while completing dental procedures. We thank you for your understanding and diligence with keeping up with this protocol.

Today's newsletter is full - just like your summer calendar is starting to be! Here you will find our 2022 Eggert Family Dentistry Scholarship recipients, Blog articles about Trauma (including a very special Patient of the Month) and Oral Cancer Awareness, as well as an important announcement regarding missed or canceled dental appointments.
Lastly, if you haven't already scheduled your family's summer recare visits, call our office at the number below or follow this link to schedule online.

Oral Care for Cancer Patients

Eggert Family Dentistry Announcement
Information on Missed Appointments/Late Notice Cancellations
With the busy time of year (and with illnesses, including COVID, still going around), we understand it can be hard to sometimes honor your scheduled dental appointments. We ask, however, that you do all you can to keep your previously scheduled appointments. As you have likely heard, there is a severe shortage of workers throughout the nation. We have been hit especially hard in the dental industry. Every dental office we know, including ours, is understaffed at this time. This means that every appointment is precious and we cannot have appointments go unfilled. When you miss your appointment or even if you give us some notice by way of a cancellation call, it takes us a lot of time to piece things back together. This is time we would much rather devote to providing you with impeccable customer service!

Unfortunately, with all the increased costs for products and labor we have had to bear, we have no other option but to start consistently charging for missed appointments or appointments canceled with late notice. We thank you for your understanding of this matter. We look forward to serving you this summer!
We're Honored to Celebrate All Our Grads and Dads This Month! πŸŽ“πŸ‘¨
