CU Dental’s Coronavirus Precautions

Patient Information

​A Message to Our CU Dental Community - 3/23/2020

CU Dental is canceling all dental appointments until Tuesday, April 14. 

As you may have seen, Colorado Governor, Jared Polis, signed an executive order temporarily suspending elective and non-essential surgeries and procedures. The order is to help preserve important medical equipment to combat COVID-19. The executive order is already in effect (Monday, March 23 to Tuesday, April 14) and includes dental.

Once we have a better idea of when we will re-open, we will contact you to get your appointment rescheduled. 

Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.

A Message to Our CU Dental Community 3/17/2020​

The health and safety of our patients, students, faculty and staff, is the top priority of the CU School of Dental Medicine.

With the continued spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) throughout Colorado, the CU School of Dental Medicine has suspended routine dental care and our walk-in urgent care clinic. 

Emergency and urgent care, which is open to current/active patients, will be by appointment only with pre-screening via telephone.

Emergency or urgent issues include:
  • ​Swelling of gums, face, or neck
  • Signs of infection such as a draining site
  • Trauma to face, jaw, teeth, including fractures
  • Broken tooth
  • Management of loss or broken temporary crown or bridge​

If you are a current/active patient and are experiencing any of these, please call 303-724-7877 from 8:00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m. After hours emergencies, please call 720-848-0000 and ask for the on-call resident. 

If you are a current patient in our Orthodontics clinics and have an emergency involving pain from orthodontic wires or appliances that require immediate attention, please call 303-656-7082.

If you are not a current patient at the CU School for Dental Medicine and are experiencing any of the dental emergency issues list above, please contact a local dental emergency clinic.

The CU School of Dental Medicine is closely monitoring the guidance from the CDPHE, CDC, U.S. Department of State. The CU Anschutz Medical Campus also has additional resources online.  

As a precaution, the CDPHE and the CDC have provided these tips to help prevent the spread of coronavirus: 
  • ​Wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with soapy water or, at a minimum, alcohol-based sanitizer, which may be less effective than soap and water. 
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms. 
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow shirtsleeve. 
  • Get your flu shot and stay up-to-date on other routine immunizations. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as desks, doorknobs, handrails, etc. 

Again, your health and safety and the health and safety of others are important to us.
