Dear Parents and Guardians,

In Compliance with recommendation from the American Dental Association (ADA), the Colorado Dental Association (CDA), the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), Colorado governor's office and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Durango Kids Pediatric Dentistry will close the office to patients seeking elective and non-urgent care. During this time, Dr. Pinkerton will provide only emergency dental care and medically necessary care. This will allow us to care for our most critical patients, while also alleviating the burden that emergency dental care would put on hospitals. Refer to the chart below as a reference to help determine if your dental situation requires immediate attention. If you are uncertain, please contact our office, someone is available to assist you 8:00am-12:00pm Monday - Friday (970)-259-0600. Dr. Pinkerton can be reached by cell (970)-317-1499.

Regularly scheduled patients for the weeks of March 23 - April 16 will be contacted for reappointment. We are making every effort to ensure timely availability including the addition of 3 Saturday Clinics and 1 Friday Clinic. Thank you in advance for your patience and continued support as we exercise abundant caution during one of the most disruptive public health emergencies in modern history.
