Butte-Sierra Dental Society


Good Afternoon!

We would like to remind members that Butte-Sierra Dental Society is not a regulatory agency – we cannot order members to practice or not to practice.

Our responsibility in serving members is to provide reliable information as soon as we have it, so that you can make the best decisions for your practice and your patients.

We are sharing the most current information with you, and expect that information to be amended/updated regularly. As we receive new information, we will pass that along to you as quickly as possible.

Planning to be Tested for COVID-19 for You and Staff Members?

Several testing sites are opened in the BSDDS area. Register for an appointment online: https://lhi.care/covidtesting (or call 1-888-634-1123 during business hours).

There are multiple sites to choose from. We were told today that there were no lines at the Grass Valley site. You may want to register as quickly as possible to avoid delays as information about these sites becomes more widely known.
