At Berthoud Dental Care, we are continuously working to improve the accessibility of content on our websites. Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible:

If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.

If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.

Closed Captioning

Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.

Volume Controls

Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.

If the recommendations above do not meet your needs, we invite you to contact us at  (970) 532-4209 for assistance in accessing our website content.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Our office is currently closed by order of Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies until at least April 14th, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A staff member will be available by phone Monday-Thursday, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

We are extremely limited by the executive order concerning emergency dental care. Only life-threatening conditions can be legally treated at this time.

Your health and safety during the coronavirus pandemic is very important to us. Please be safe and follow all recommendations as outlined by the CDC.

We hope to see your bright and SMILING faces soon!
