Dr. Resch has temporarily closed both of his orthodontic clinics, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
Given the outbreak of COVID-19, the MN Board of Dentistry made the difficult, but important, decision to postpone any non-emergent appointments. You can be assured that this decision was not made lightly but was made to protect patients, staff and families. Given the closure, you may have a few questions.
Will this delay my treatment?
We know part of a successful orthodontic treatment is showing up for your appointments. If that’s not an option under these unusual circumstances, it’s okay. No need to worry. Though your appointments are scheduled to achieve maximum success, this hiccup shouldn’t have much of an impact on your overall treatment plan. Given the situation, we will work hard to get your treatment plan back on track when we reopen. You can help keep treatment on track by following your orthodontist’s directions, avoiding hard and sticky foods and keeping your teeth clean.
My staff will contact you to schedule an appointment once we know more about when the office can reopen. Information regarding this will be available on our Facebook, Instagram, and website. A timeline as to when we reopen may be up-in-the-air, but you can rest assured Dr. Resch is making decisions with your best interest in mind.
My orthodontist said they will continue “essential dental care.” What does that mean?
If you have an urgent need during this time, such as pain or injury, we will be available for emergency appointments. Please contact our office to determine the best course of action for your specific situation. Dr. Resch will also be available via virtual appointments.

There’s a lot of uncertainty right now, but what’s one thing we know for sure?
Dr. Resch is looking forward to seeing you back in the office soon!
