Donovan Dental Clinic Update

Dear Families,

I realize it has been quite some time since we shared any updates on the Dental Clinic. We opened again for appointments in September 2020, post the Covid closure. We have been and we continue to follow Covid procedures and seeing residents in cohorts. We are generally doing one area at a time and working our way across campus. We realize this will take some time. We started with Shannon and we then moved to Marian Center. We have seen some Village residents. They will then see CILA, McAuley, Mercy Glen, and Quinlan before we start the next round.

We currently have a dentist two days a week and currently Dr. Ashley is on maternity leave (congrats, it's a boy, Joey!). Dr. Jennifer is picking up her day for now. We do hope we can get back to a dentist three days a week. They are still taking emergency dental issues if it can wait until the dentists are here. They are working hard to get all residents at least one cleaning this year. We would love to do two cleanings a year but we are not there at this point. Several families are using outside dentists at this point.

We will continue to provide updates, especially if we are able to expand services. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
