I am quite pleased with my periodontal care with Dr. Rush. He is very comforting and I feel as though I can trust what he says. The dental technician is amazing that I have seen the last few times. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The office staff is very welcoming and accommodating with scheduling. I barely get set down in the waiting room before being called back. I really appreciate your awesome service!

- Donna K.

I had gum regression on some of my lower teeth due to grinding. Dr. Rush was able to fix my problem in a painless process. I felt normal in a week and have had no issues in the year since my procedure. The professionalism of Dr. Rush and his staff is outstanding. I would recommend his services to anyone with a periodontal need!

- Mark L.

I recently had free gingival grafting performed by Dr. Rush on four of my lower front teeth. I could not be happier with the results! Dr. Rush is well trained, highly skilled, and caring. He readily answered my questions about the procedure and was clear about what to expect and follow up care. Dr. Rush had excellent rapport with his surgical assistant, and his office staff was knowledgeable and welcoming. I strongly recommend Dr. Rush and his professional team for any periodontal procedures.

To Our Valued Patients:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. The coronavirus has impacted all of us over the last few months and we are looking forward to resuming a more normal routine. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care and we appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Your periodontal health is very important and we are aware that delaying regular maintenance and care has not been ideal. We have appreciated your patience and are happy to say that we are planning to gradually reopen our office for patient treatment as of 5/19/20. We will begin to schedule hygiene appointments in June. Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we are ONLY opening because we have carefully planned and revised our office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. Our hours of operation will remain the same (Tuesday – Friday from 8:00am - 5:00pm with occasional Saturday appointments).

As we begin to see patients, we will be increasing our level of infection control. Our office has always followed the infection control recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), American Dental Association® (ADA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Our office is following the latest recommendations from these organizations regarding the coronavirus. We also want to make you aware of some precautions and extra measures that our office has implemented. For example:
  • Our office will be communicating with you before any appointment to ask some screening questions. These same questions will be asked again BEFORE entering the office. To see a sample of the questions, please click here.
  • Temperatures will be checked prior to entering the office. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.
  • ONLY scheduled patients will be allowed entry into the office. Any visitors will be asked to wait in their vehicle.
  • Patients are asked to arrive at their scheduled appointment time and wait in their vehicle until they have been notified to come into the office.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the office.
  • Masks will be required (and provided as needed) for all patients to wear while in the office.
  • All counters, surfaces and door handles will be disinfected after each patient.
  • Medical grade air purifiers will be placed in each treatment room and throughout the office that filter particles smaller than the size of the coronavirus.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for adequate social distancing between patients. This may result in fewer options available for scheduling.
  • As we have continually done in the past, all personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by our clinical staff (gowns, gloves, masks, face shields) will be new/clean for each patient.

We are proceeding with an abundance of caution and we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one. We appreciate your patience and loyalty as we navigate this difficult time.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Dr. Seth Rush & Staff
