An Important COVID‑19 Announcement
Dear Valued Patients:
Please read this in its entirety as it will answer many questions you may have about your dental care during these turbulent times. As of 3/23 Governor Inslee has initiated a stay at home order for all non essential services. Emergent dental care is still considered an essential service so our office will remain open on a limited basis to see emergent patients, AFTER a CDC recommended health screening has been completed, AND we have adequate personal protection equipment on hand for our staff and doctors available to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID 19 Virus.
Presently all elective dental treatment has been mandated to be postponed until May 18th. The term elective is up for debate and the risk of transmission with proper health screening and use of personal protection equipment is low, however it is not zero and any incidence of transmission from staff to patient, patient to patient or patient to staff is too high for our standards. In addition, we must also use PPE in a dental setting which takes it away from a Frontline health care worker who may require it and it is in severely limited supply. We are donating excess PPE to hospitals if possible.
For this reason we are only seeing patients where not completing treatment would likely result in a emergency room visit if their condition was left untreated, AND they have passed an 8 question screening, AND only if we have appropriate PPE available for the protection of our staff and other patients. This level of discrimination is required.
We are extremely uncomfortable knowing our patients may be in discomfort, inconvenienced or in pain due to their dental condition. The COVID 19 risk supercedes this at this time. We will try to use medications such as pain killer and antibiotics, remote evaluation by phone or video call, transmission of images via electronic methods prior to seeing you if possible.
Our phones will be open Monday – Friday from 7am to 4pm for the duration. We are here for you, we will be ready or your return to our practice when it has been determined safe to do so.
As previously mentioned please assume your presently scheduled visit has been postponed. If your visit falls into a category where we feel that management with medication is not appropriate, or where delaying treatment may result in harm to you we will be contacting you to complete a health screening in the next 7-10 days. At that time your treatment may be considered emergent and may be considered to be completed at this time. In the meantime please stay home, stay safe and help our community get past the COVID 19 pandemic.

PreVu™ Technology Learn More
Our office is proud to offer the latest in treatment visualization technology. Using our PreVu™ software, we can take extremely accurate measurements and photographs of your mouth and jaw. This imaging and measuring is combined with cutting edge photo editing software to give you a visual 'preview' of the results of their treatment before they even start!

Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!
In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain veneers can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.
Same-Day Emergencies Learn More
Dr. Ziegele understands the stress of emergency dental issues, especially when it seems impossible to get emergency dental care in Sumner that same day.
Even if you’re a new patient, April Ziegele promises to take care of your dental emergency with a same-day appointment.
TMJ Treatment Learn More

Sedation Dentistry Learn More
Sedation dentistry is an excellent treatment for patients with extensive dental needs, or who are concerned about anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or sensitive teeth.
Mercury Free Restorations Learn More
The common silver filling contains mercury. Dr. Ziegele uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.
Smile Whitening Learn More
Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
We want you to feel comfortable at our office. From the luxurious finishes to the decorative elements to the relaxing treatments, you’ll feel like you’ve visited a spa, not a dentist. Come visit us today and experience the difference!
