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.

5 Ways Dental Veneers Can Boost Your Smile

Do you always suppress your smile or laughter because of the stains, chips, and fractures on your teeth? Do you dread talking in public because you fear people will laugh at you because of your teeth? An imperfect smile shouldn’t rob your confidence and happiness. At Richard D. Weigand, DDS in Spokane, Washington, we install high-quality dental veneers not only to improve your aesthetics but to enhance your oral functionality, too.

is Dental Veneers Can Boost the Smile, Spokane, WA

Here are five ways in which teeth veneers can refresh your smile.

Brighten stained teeth

While teeth whitening can whiten your smile, not everyone responds to this treatment. If your teeth discoloration is caused by medications, aging, or too much fluoride exposure when you were young, teeth whitening can do little to brighten your smile. However, veneers can cover up these stubborn stains, giving you a show-stopping smile.

Disguise cracks and chips

Cracks and fractures due to injuries or biting hard substances aren’t only unsightly but alter your oral function. However, if you have teeth cracks and chips, veneers improve the appearance and add an extra layer of protection to prevent further damage.

Close minor gaps and disguise teeth flaws

If you have minor teeth gaps and misshapen teeth, you probably channel most of your energy trying to smile with your lips closed. Luckily, veneers can close little gaps and hide teeth imperfections, helping you smile broadly without minding the look of your smile.

Can straighten your smile

If you have a minor teeth misalignment, you don’t have to go through the hassle of cumbersome metal braces. Veneers can reshape your teeth, giving you a symmetrical smile. However, if misalignment compromises your oral health or affects your bite, we recommend orthodontic treatment.

Bid goodbye to a gummy smile

If you smile and show too much of your gums, you may have a gummy smile. However, veneers can bring balance to your smile by showing more teeth and less gums.
