A group of local dentists have kept busy, volunteering where they can during the pandemic.

“We’ve tried to do a few things in the community to help out,” said Justin Dworak, owner of Maranatha Dental Group.  “We’ve been involved with Matt Talbot’s kitchen, helping there, and we’ve been to the blood bank and tried to donate some blood. We’ve been to some local emergency rooms and donated some N-95 respirator masks.”

The Maranatha Dental Group also continues to take in dental emergency patients to keep the numbers low in hospital emergency rooms. Dworak says the staff is ready to get back to work as the mayor lifted some restrictions for them.

“I’m excited to get back on Monday and see some patients again and start to work with my staff again,” adds Dworak. “When you work everyday throughout your career with all these people and all of a sudden that’s taken away from you; You kind of realize what’s been taken and you’re really excited to get to see those people again.” 

The office opens on Monday with stricter rules like practicing social distancing and screening patients for symptoms before they come in for dental work.
