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.
We will begin re-opening on Monday, May 11, slowly at first and then with some increases over following weeks. We will be following rigorous scheduling protocols and office measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of you, our patients, and the team members at Mueller Dental.
We ask for your patience. We have had to cancel over 2,000 appointments during this closure, and we know that there is a strong desire to get your treatment back on track as soon as possible. We will eventually, but it will not be as efficient as we are used to in our office. This benefits everyone. We will have to be very firm in our processes and procedures. They have been well-thought-out and reviewed countless times by our doctors and team members.
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 follow 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. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
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 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 608-835-0900.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

I would highly recommend Chad Mueller and his staff! Very professional, caring and gentle! You guys are #1 Thanks!
We have had some "not-so pleasant" dentists in the past and my 5 and 12 yo daughters are completely comfortable going to them. Their hygienists are great too.
I've been going to Mueller Dental for 10+ years. Keep up the good work!
We recently moved to Wisconsin and needed a dentist for a lost filling and Dr. Mueller took care of us quickly and with minimal wallet pain!! Thanks Dr. M!!
