Hermanson Orthodontics

COVID-19 UPDATE

4.2.20 6:00 P.M.

Hermanson Orthodontics will remain closed through April 30th.

Governor Reynolds has again extended her State Public Health Emergency Declaration. This latest proclamation prohibits all dentists and staff in the State of Iowa from performing any elective dental procedures at this time to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to preserve the personal protective equipment that is needed to protect healthcare workers from infected patients. This mandate will remain in effect until April 30th at 11:59 pm. Until then, we will be tending to true orthodontic emergencies only. This situation is challenging all of us, and we hate that it is causing delays in our patients’ treatments. We understand, though, that Governor Reynolds has taken this action to protect our patients, our team, and our communities. We urge everyone to wash hands frequently, to practice social distancing, and to hunker down at home so life can return to normal, and we can start working on your smiles again as soon as possible!

Retention

After the braces are removed, the retention phase of your treatment will begin. This phase of your treatment is just as important to your long-term result as the active treatment is. It is the nature of teeth to move whether you have had braces or not. By wearing your custom-fit retainers as recommended, you can keep your smile looking great forever.
