COVID-19 Notice

COVID-19

We hope this communication finds you and your family in good health. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to ensuring patient and staff safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. During these unprecedented times,
we are enhancing safety protocols in accordance with recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team. For example:

• Screenings will occur when scheduling, the day prior to appointment, and upon arrival to the office. In addition, temperature checks and hand sanitizer will be required upon arrival.

• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing. Patients may be asked to wait in their cars prior to entering and to limit extra companions except for pediatric and special needs patients. Companions will be asked to wear a mask.

• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

• Strict adherence to infection control standards and COVID-19 transmission precautions including personal protective equipment, increased cleaning & sanitizing, increased barriers throughout the office, adjustment of clinical techniques to reduce aerosols, air purifiers in each room to reduce aerosols, and steps to prevent transmission between work & home for staff.

• We will continue to wait on patients or procedures which are still considered high risk.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. Elective procedures will resume on May 4th. To make an appointment, please call our office at 402-932-3317, or schedule an appointment. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends. Thank you for being our patient.

Meet Dr. Caudillo, DDS

“It is an honor to be in a profession committed to achieving healthy smiles that will last a lifetime.” It is my objective for patients to enjoy and remember their dental visit as a positive experience they are happy to share with their family and friends.

I grew up in South Sioux City, Nebraska.  My opportunities to be a Spanish interpreter in multiple healthcare setting and my nursing background are what attracted me to this profession.  I graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry and the College of Saint Mary Nursing Program.  I continue to practice a commitment of excellence in education, patient care, and service.  I am actively engaged in continuing education programs to expand my practice with updated knowledge and skills to ensure high standards of care.  I am a participant in the Spear Dental Study Club and have achieved Fellowship in the International Dental Implant Association.

When I am not at the dental office, I enjoy spending time with my husband Steven, daughter Elise, and son Max.  I enjoy running, going on family trips, and spending time with my friends.
