Important Information Regarding COVID-19


Updated as of September 22, 2020

Dear Patients,

Your team at Fountaingrove Dentistry has been back treating patients for four months now.  We are happy to report that all our team members have been COVID free and following strict protocols in the practice to ensure patient safety. We have been monitoring national dental and medical associations and there have been no outbreaks related to dentistry reported. This is wonderful news.

Some sad news to report as well.  We will not be having our annual Halloween Toothbrush Give Away this year due to Trick or Treat essentially being cancelled. We hope to be able to resume the tradition next year.

Teryl and Teresa have retired from the practice after 20+ years each. Also, Stephanie, our Registered Dental Assistant, has just moved to Iowa to be closer to the grand-kids. We will miss them and wish them the best in their new endeavors. There is a baby boom as well! Our hygienist, Heather, had her second baby, a beautiful girl, and Dr. Temnitzer and his wife, Radka, welcomed their daughter about the same time. All of us here will be helping so that patient care goes on without interruption and the new parents can get a little baby time.

We welcome our new team members, Allegra and Vanessa, to the practice.  Allegra is working in the reception area while Vanessa graduated from the SRJC Dental Assisting Program and is caring for our patient’s clinical needs.  We enjoy having them both on the team.

Although it still in not “normal,” we have adapted well to the additional COVID safety precautions and procedures. Please feel free to talk to any of our team members about these safety measures or you can visit our website for more information. At Fountaingrove Dentistry, we always strive to provide the finest dental care in a safe, comfortable, and compassionate environment.

As we finally approach the end of 2020, you may have dental benefits remaining.  It may be smart to schedule necessary treatment before the end of the year, so the benefit is not lost. Please give our office a call so we can reserve time for you.

Stay safe and we hope to see you here soon.

The Fountaingrove Dentistry Team
