The Resource Center’s Jamestown Dental Office will resume offering complete dental services Monday, June 8.

At the direction of New York State and the American Dental Association, the office had been open only for emergencies and telehealth appointments since mid-March because of the pandemic. During the shutdown, staff have been making preparations in order to be able to operate safely once the practice reopened. Steps taken to ensure the safety of patients and staff include enhanced air filtration; placement of plastic barriers between each room; limited seating in the waiting room; and development of a plan to sanitize all areas in each treatment room after every patient visit. Patients will continue to be screened for COVID-19 upon entering the building.

All dental employees underwent two days of training this week on ADA and Centers of Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
The dental office, located within TRC Community Health Center at 890 East Second Street, will be open Mondays through Thursdays. New patients are being accepted. For people who are not able to come to the office for assessment and treatment, telehealth appointments will continue to be provided.

The Resource Center has been providing dental services to the community for more than 25 years. TRC Dental offers complete dental care, including state-of-the-art equipment, digital x-rays and electronic dental records, and the practice has an assistive lift for patients with physical limitations. TRC Dental is able to bill most insurances.

For the time being, The Resource Center’s Dunkirk dental office will remain closed. North County residents are welcome to come to the Jamestown Office.
