To our Sawtooth Dental Patients,
With the current situation unfolding in regards to the coronavirus we want you to be aware
that we are, as we always have, abiding by strict guidelines of infection control that are
recommended by the CDC and the American Dental Association. We use hospital grade
disinfectants in every operatory after each patient is treated and have strict protocols in place
to ensure proper sterilization of equipment. Your health as well as our team members is our
top priority. We have made a few temporary adjustments to our office protocols to ensure
illness doesn’t spread which are as follows;
1. If you (or have been closely associated with someone that has) have had a fever ,
cough, chills, or mild flu like symptoms please call and reschedule your appt when
you have been symptom free for 14 days. Please do not come to the office when
you are sick.
2. If you or someone you have contact with has traveled to a high risk area outside of or
in the United States please call the office to reschedule your appt when you have
been symptom free for 14 days since returning from travel.
3. We will be screening all patients at check in for fever or cough
4. We are ensuring all areas, including the waiting rooms and bathrooms have hand
sanitizer available and are routinely disinfected throughout the day multiple times.
5. We have removed all magazines and kids toys from the waiting areas
6. Please do not bring extra people to your appointments. If an adult needs to be here
with a minor please limit to 1 adult.
7. We are ensuring that if any staff member is showing signs of illness they will not be
in the office but remain at home until they are feeling better.
Thank you for your trust in us and continued support. We are committed to your overall health and
safety and will keep you updated as any changes may arise.

Sawtooth Dental is awesome! I had to have a filling replaced because it chipped. Byron was amazing and I hardly felt anything when he administered the shots. He remembers me each time I visit and engages in friendly conversation which helps alleviate any nervousness. All staff is very personable, and the quality is exceptional. I actually just recommended my chef to your office. I am also considering transferring my children to your office but unsure if you are ok with an 8 year old and 12 year old. They are currently at a children's dentist office, but we never have the same hygienist or doctor each time they go.' Thank you!
As a prior dental assistant (from long ago) I've only had a cleaning; which was THOROUGhLY done. The necessary time was take to clean, scale, polish and visually examine the entire mouth for cancer. The exam also included checking for abnormal swelling, gum health, along with verification of breakage, gum loss, decay, breakage, and inspection of tongue. In other words, this exam covered any and all concerns a person could voice. I have never been so pleased with such an extensive profilaxis in over 20 years. The staff is excellent, fun and understanding of needs. This not only includes reception -- it also includes doctors, billing and overall staff. Yikes! I'm too happy to go on..................
Professional, but warm. Dr. Sorenson was pleasant and very thorough as well as polite and respectful. All the staff were friendly and helpful! Best dental experience I’ve ever had despite the work that needs to be done. Excellent value for the VIP plan.
