Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental is excited to announce that under Amended Public Health Order 20-29 we are now able to see voluntary, elective services and non-emergency appointments!!
Even though we will be open, strict safety guidelines and procedures must be followed to help protect you and our staff.
Please carefully follow all verbal instructions from our staff, the posted signs as you come in our door, and additionally whatever you might feel as necessary for your own personal situation.
We have devised our guidelines and procedures to the best of our professional judgment. However, even the best precautions cannot completely eliminate the risk of disease.

You should understand and accept that when you seek treatment at our facility.

A few of the practices included in our safety procedures will be a continuation of social distancing, strict and proper hygiene procedures, and using face coverings, masks, gloves, and other PPE.

As an Example, among other precautions and not limited to this list, are: All CDC, CDPHE, Executive Orders and OSHA standard precautions will be strictly adhered to.
