Dentists battle through backlog

It may take a while for some patients to get back into the dentist's office. Outside of emergency work, dentist offices like Smile Designs of Door County in Sturgeon Bay were closed for nearly two months due to COVID-19 and have been spending the last six weeks catching up on cleanings that were missed. Dr. Gina Grenfell says they are using extra personal protective equipment, spacing out appointments, and doing health screenings to keep her staff and her patients safe. She hopes people are comfortable seeing their dentist again.

Grenfell appreciates her patients being flexible with their appointments, even if their next visits could be months past when they are usually scheduled to take place.
