COVID-19 Information

Open Door Health Center is open and treating patients safely in our Mankato clinic or right from home with telehealth. We have three levels of screening set up for the safety of our staff, patients, and community.

Medical & Behavioral Health Appointments

Patients can call (507) 388-2120 to be screened and schedule an appointment in medical or behavioral health.

This screening will determine whether we can assist in-person or by phone/video conferencing.

Our hours for medical and behavioral health appointments remain the same, but we are not offering walk-in appointments.

8 am – 5 pm; Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday;
9 am – 5 pm; Wednesday.

Emergency Dental Appointments

Emergency dental appointments are also available (in Mankato only) for patients experiencing excessive pain, swelling, or a bad taste in their mouth.

Patients can call (507) 344-5539 to be screened for an emergency dental appointment.

8 am – 12 pm; Monday – Thursday

We expect to reopen full dental services by early July.
Please check back here for updates.

Per Gov. Walz and the Minnesota Board of Dentistry, full dental practices are able to resume as of May 18th. Open Door will be resuming full dental services within the next few weeks. We are waiting for cutting edge safety equipment to arrive and be installed to increase safety for our patients and staff.
