West Lakes Family Dentistry - Jared Sass DDS


I can NOT say enough wonderful things about the entire staff @ WestLakes Family Dentistry. From the moment, my very timid, nervous 4 year old walked in the door, they showered her with attention and care. Ms. Ashley spent the entire appointment by her side making her feel 100% comfortable and confident. While Dr. Sass & Ms. Cindy gave her extraordinary care and kept me informed on each step of the appt. We had been to a previous "Pediatric Dentist" and didn't receive such unbelievable care. Life long clients, we'll be. May thanks Dr. Sass and team!
Dr. Sass and staff did an amazing job with my kids today.
From sparkly tooth sticker pictures to actual pearly whites. 17 years later and he still has fantastic teeth thanks to the key phrase his Mom used growing up “Cindy said”. {Cindy has kept this tooth worthy drawing since he was just a youngin!}
Happy 40th Birthday Anjanete Hoy Morin.
Dashing through West Lakes In a one tooth mouth O’er the chair we go Smiling all the way Prophy paste on rings Making smiles bright What fun it is to laugh and smile a cavity free song tonight! Oh Dr. Sass, Dr.Sass, Dr.Sass No cavities all the way Oh what fun it is to scream No cavities tonight! Don’t forget to stop by and purchase one of the best stocking stuffers for your kiddos! Each time your child comes in for their 6 month recall appointment you are being a rock star parent! Look at you go! At every cleaning appointment your child is cavity free their name will placed in Dr. Sass’ Tooth All Stars Box for a chance to be drawn for an individualized special surprise gift. Stay tuned for our November No Cavity Club winner! Hooray! Happy kiddos and happy parents! 🎄⛄️❄️
Even the ❄️ at West Lakes knows to brush and floss daily to keep themselves glistening.
Happy belated birthday to Dr Jared Sass! 🎂
The second one fell out. She had to show you. Thanks for the great care you give our family.
Thank you to an amazing boss and co-workers for all the help and covering my hours while trying to recover. Jared Sass, Sheri Veraldi, Amy Toay Klocke, Cindy Greenwood King, and Anjanete Hoy Morin. Could not ask for a better bunch to work wit!

We appreciate our toothatstic dental family being so understanding as we continue to learn our new normals.

Unicorns, sloths and poking Dr. Sass! O my! 🦄 🦥 🥼

But, just because we have new normals doesn’t mean we still cannot have the same Toothpack shenanigans and make you laugh! 🎉

Thank you to our Critter Hoarder for keeping us fashionable and compliant with our new regulations!


Day 2 of dental chair shenanigans here we come! 🎉

🦷 We ask that our patients wait in their cars, call us when you are here, and wear a mask upon entering. We will call you with screening questions when your chair is ready and take your tempture upon entering.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we make our office as safe as possible for you and our Toothpack.

Stay flossy, happy and fabulous! 💙

We’re toothfully excited to see our dental family! 🎉

Please be patient with us as we learn our new normal.

Things are going to be a little different. Scratch that.
A LOT different.

We will also look different with our new PPE requirements.

We understand that everyone will have questions, frustrations, and so many emotions during this time, and we will do what we can to help.

🦷 We are working on getting everyone rescheduled

🦷 Masks are required when you come into the office.

🦷 When you arrive for your appointment, please call us from your vehicle and we will come and get you when we are ready.

🦷 You will not be able to bring others in with you for your appointment.

🦷 If you do NOT have an appointment, please do not walk in. Please call us to set up a time to be seen. We need to keep the number of people in the office at a minimum.

These are a few highlighted changes and we will get everything posted.

Thank you so much for all of the support and understanding during this time and as we move forward with our new normal.

We are very excited to get back to our dental chair shenanigans 🎉🎉🎉

We can’t keep calm because we miss our patients! 🎉

We wanted to give a COVID update to our toothatstic dental family!

📣 Yes, Governor Reynolds has made the announcement that dental offices can re open effective today. As excited as we are about that, and as much as we miss seeing everyone, our top priority is patient and our teams safety.

We have new protocols and requirements that we need to implement before we can safely and in good conscious open our door.

We are busy getting all of the necessary PPE(personal protective equipment) and a plan in place. 🥼 😷 🧤

🗓 We will have our re open date figured out and be making calls next week to get our appointments rescheduled.

☎️ You can still reach Dr. Sass by phone for your dental emergencies.

We look forward to getting back to our Toothpack dental chair shenanigans and seeing our dental family. 💙 🦷💙

Please be patient with us as we establish our new "normals".
We are all in this together and will get through it. 💪🏻

Ash was not harmed in the making of this shenanigan 😂
