Dear Patient:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control 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). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

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

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You'll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
    • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
    • 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.
    • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

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. To make an appointment, please call our office at (509) 485-8620 or visit our website at

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Richard D. Weigand, DDS

    I really can’t rave enough about this office. From the moment you walk in, they make you feel welcome. I had quite a bit of work to get done, so I’ve had a few visits. They greet me by name and do their utmost to make me feel comfortable. They are a quality practice. So, you get what you pay for. They mapped out a plan and worked with me on spacing out my appointments so as to not overwhelm me with the costs. No hard sell on extras like I’ve seen with other dentists. They take Care Credit too, so that helps a lot. If you’re looking for a caring, professional Dentist’s office, this is the place!!

    Most amazing dental experience yet! If I just had a foot massage I would’ve had a nap as well! I’ve worked in the dental service for years and can first handedly say best up-to-date technology number one for comfort whether you’re new to dental or this is an ongoing thing for you. Never does the staff judge you or your family where you’re at with your own dental hygiene. The sweetest staff members throughout the office! Easy scheduling and great explanations for the recommendations they have. I have three teenagers my husband and myself we are all so happy with our experiences in this office I would never change!

    I would say if you are not 110% satisfied with where you’re at you need to try Dr. Weigand’s office so you know the best care is out there!!

    I have never had a dentist call me the next morning to ask how I’m doing — and that’s just one of the small details that sets this practice apart. I left my appointment impressed & satisfied, and will be returning here for any future dental work. Thanks!

    My fiance and I have been going to Dr. Weigand’s office for close to 3 years, and I can’t recommend them enough. They have the most friendly staff, amazingly clean office, and modern technology. Dr. Weigand himself is kind, personable, and efficient. He even makes personal phone calls the day after treatment, to see how you’re doing. They offer sound canceling headphones, Pandora, and blankets during treatment to keep you relaxed. If you’re looking for a new dentist, check them out!

    I have been going to Dr. Weigand and his team for 4 years now, they are EXPERTS at their craft. The cleanings are very thorough, the team is super friendly and Dr Weigand’s work is top notch/quality. I even had him do a filling on my very front tooth that many dentists have tried before (unsuccessfully) and only his actually worked!

    Dr. Weigand is an excellent dentist and his staff are wonderful. Each member of the team makes sure you are comfortable and explains each process thoroughly. The office is clean and nicely decorated.

    Dr. Weigand is the only dentist I have been to that will call you personally and check on you after a visit and does so sincerely. He informs you of what he is doing and why when you have a procedure which is also not common. Overall a great experience.

    Dr. Weigand and his staff are amazing! Being new to the area and looking for a good dentist is difficult, I am so thankful I found this office. After an appt with lots of dental work I received a call in the evening to check in on how I was doing. This speaks volumes to the kind of dentist Dr. Weigand is. Dental work is never enjoyable but the entire office seems go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable and understand all that is going on. I am grateful to have found them.

    I came in with a chipped front tooth, and Dr. Richard Weigand made my tooth look like it never even happened. I loved that he was able to match the shade of my filling with the rest of my smile. An awesome perk was being able to listen to music while they were treating me.
