July 2021

Dear Valued Patients:

We hope you are enjoying your summer so far! We are touching base to give you some updated information about our current COVID-19 protocols, as well as some scheduling information.

As you know the mask mandate has ended in Wisconsin. However, the CDC and Wisconsin Dental Association are still recommending healthcare facilities, including dental offices, continue with COVID-19 protocols. At this time we are asking our patients to continue to wear masks during their visit to our office. Upon your arrival we will continue to do a temperature check and ask the COVID pre-screening questions. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as your health and safety are very important to us!

Since the pandemic started, our nation has been dealing with supply and staff shortages in many industries. The dental industry is no exception. Our industry is currently experiencing a major dental hygienist shortage. We ask for your continued patience while we seek an additional hygienist to help us with our backlog of patient appointments. Your dental hygiene is very important to us. Please know that we are working hard to get everyone scheduled in a timely manner.

It is especially important that you make every effort to keep your scheduled appointment, but in the event that you need to reschedule, please let us know more than 24 hours in advance so we may accommodate those that have been waiting. And if you happen to know of a dental hygienist who is seeking employment or looking for a change, please send them our way!

We are so thankful that you have continued to trust us in caring for you and keeping you safe during your visits with us. We always say that we have the best patients around, and that is the truth!

Warmest Regards,
Dr. Showalter, Dr. Trimbell, and your Rock River Dental Team

Think of Brightening Your Smile? Here’s What You Need To Know

Having a dazzling smile is always a huge plus. Teeth whitening has gained popularity over the years and currently is one of the most sought-after services within cosmetic dentistry. Who doesn’t want a whiter brighter smile?

How Does It Work?

Teeth whitening removes stains from your teeth so that you can have a bright and white healthy smile. All teeth whitening products have hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. This is the bleaching agent that works by releasing free radicals when applied to your tooth’s surface. The free radicals then break down the stains, making your teeth whiter and brighter.

Why Professional Teeth Whitening?

Many over-the-counter whitening products are not as effective because their chemistry is either very weak and cannot bleach the teeth for sufficient amounts of time or they are very strong and dangerous to use and ingest. Professional teeth whiteners are safe, effective, and done under the supervision of a dental professional. It is worth the extra cost to visit the dentist to get long-lasting, safe results.

At Rock River Dental we not only want you to have a healthy mouth, but we also want you to love your smile! Please ask which treatment may work best for you to brighten and whiten your smile!

What Our Patients Are Saying

“Rock River Dental goes the extra mile! I recently went in to get whitening trays. The top tray ending up being just a little off. Instead of sending me home with whitening trays that wouldn’t work as well, they remade the top tray! These folks are committed to giving the best results and making sure you will be happy with the end results.” – Mariah

“I went there for the 1st time today. Haven’t been to a dentist for a long time. I was pleasantly surprised. The front staff was helpful and friendly. The hygienist was knowledgeable, kind, and did her job well. The dentist was friendly, did a good job explaining my teeth and the problems not going has caused without a lecture and was able to come up with a plan for me that I can deal with. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that doesn’t like to go to the dentist, and hasn’t been to one for a long time. I will be telling everyone about this place.” – Wayne
