Overheating after 1200 mile service

I have had two overheating warnings since my 1200 mile service. The first one was when I was stuck behind a truck on a steep climb. The second one happened yesterday while looking for a parking spot after driving less than one mile in 58 degree weather. It seems to be heating up when idling or at very low speeds.

What could the dealer have done to cause this or is it just a coincidence? I dropped it off this morning but have not heard anything from them yet. I have lots of bad thoughts running through my head right now like what if they used the wrong oil or drained the radiator fluid.

The oil level reads full and there haven't been any other warnings. The oil temerature got half way between 210 and the next notch. I am guessing it was around 240.
