ATTENTION DPDO PATIENTS
With an abundance of caution and with a “phase-in” approach, our dental office will be ready to reopen on June 1, 2020. Please refer to the COVID-19 update below for information regarding some of the changes we will be implementing during this unprecedented time.
Our office is in the process of systematically rescheduling all of our patients—beginning with those appointments cancelled since the beginning of the shelter-in-place order. If this pertains to you, there is no need to call us at this time. We will contact you in the next couple of weeks with your new appointment.
Thank you for your patience. We are very excited to reconnect with you and to provide safe quality dental care once again!
If you are having a dental emergency, call (916) 235-3736, and Drs. Finerty will return your call ASAP.
COVID 19 UPDATE:
Dear Valued DPDO Patients:
We sincerely hope that you and your family are in good health. We have all been
through a lot these past few months. We surely look forward to seeing you again
and returning to a somewhat normal routine.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Nothing is more
important than to keep you and our dental family safe. We are in the process of
implementing changes in our dental practice with the guidance of the American
Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Although we receive new information daily, these changes will be in place as your
next dental visit approaches:
Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some COVID-19
screening questions. These questions will be posted on this website, and
you will be asked the same questions again when you arrive at the office.
We are limiting the number of patients in our office to respect social
distancing. This means staggering appointments to avoid multiple patients
being in our waiting room at the same time and maintaining an open
operatory between each functioning room at all times.
Our preference will be for as many front desk functions to be handled by
phone. This includes making appointments, accepting payments, and
asking any insurance or billing questions. The waiting room will no longer
be available, so on the day of your appointment, please have anyone
accompanying you to wait in your car.
We insist that you come to your scheduled appointment on time and
wearing a mask. Only one patient will be scheduled in 15 minute
increments. If you are running late or desire to be seen early, call our
office first. Please do not just show up.
We will be sending you a text message and/or email the day before your appointment. Please respond "HERE" to that text/email when you are in our parking garage. You can also phone our office to alert us.
Use hand sanitizer provided in the first floor lobby prior to entering the
elevator and again when you exit elevator. In our office, you will see acrylic barriers and our whole team
wearing masks. If you do not arrive with a mask on, we can provide you
with one, but please be mindful of our limited supply. We will promptly
provide you with gloves, which you will leave on for the entire time you are
in our office. We will take your temperature and go over the COVID-19
screening questions. You will then be directed to your operatory.
Once in your room, you will update your health history on the computer
using your gloved hands, as well as sign any needed consent forms.
You will notice that our dental team is wearing additional personal
protective equipment (PPE). We also have modified some of our
procedures to minimize aerosolizing saliva. Universal precautions will
continue as usual—cleaning rooms with wipes that kill all viruses on hard
surfaces in one minute. We will also be wiping down common areas at
Someone will escort you out of the office, throwing away your gloves as
you leave. If your next appointment is not scheduled, that can be handled
by phone or text.
In addition, please contact our office if you develop any signs or
symptoms of COVID-19 within the next 14 days following your visit.
Please be patient with us as together we navigate through these necessary
changes. All of us at Downtown Plaza Dental Offices greatly value your trust and
loyalty. We are committed to maintain the same caring environment with quality
dental care, and with special attention to safety.

We believe our patients deserve treatment in the gentlest, most trusting environment where they feel well-informed and supported when making decisions concerning their long-term care. Our patients desire to find the most ideal solutions for their smiles by communicating their dental goals and pursuing greater knowledge about their oral health.
Our committed dental family – our greatest asset – enjoys serving with honesty and integrity. We are an efficient and confident team of closely knit individuals who rely upon each other and believe in the concept of teamwork toward the common goals of exceptional patient services and care.
Years of Experience
I have been coming to Downtown Plaza Dental for 10 years. Always excellent service for comfortable general dental care, but the real test was how they assisted when I had a dental emergency while on vacation out of state. I was impressed at how quickly Dr. Finerty and staff were able to ensure my comfort and safety from 2,000 miles away! I always recommend this firm.
Stacy C. - Patient since 2006
I have been served by Downtown Plaza Dental Offices for the past 37 years and am very pleased with the quality, professionalism, sincere concern, friendliness, and service of Dr. Michael Finerty, Dr. Jennifer Finerty, the dental hygienists and the staff of Downtown Plaza Dental Offices.
Joel U. - Patient since 1997
Everyone at the office, from front desk to the dentist were extremely friendly and gentle. I would highly recommend this place, coming from someone who sincerely dreads dental visits and historically visits as little as possible. I felt comfortable and did not feel berated for my poor track record with the dentist. I WILL be returning regularly.
