Important Information Regarding COVID-19

In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff.

We have been closely monitoring and planning our response to COVID-19 based on recommendations from Federal, State and Local Authorities. We will be closing our office, effective Friday, March 20 for all non-emergent care. This change is temporary – we anticipate being able to return to normal operations in early May.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency such as severe toothache, swelling of your gums, face or neck, bleeding in your mouth that does not stop, infection, a potential infection, trauma such as a broken tooth or are unsure if your situation requires immediate attention, please contact our office to discuss arrangements for your care.

We are currently working diligently to reschedule appointments and will keep you updated as we know more.   We look forward to continuing your dental care when we resume normal operations and will contact you to reschedule any appointments that may have been impacted as soon as we are able. In the meantime, we are available to answer any questions you may have at 314-434-4676.  Dedicated staff will be available during normal business hours to answer your calls and return messages promptly.

We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.

Sincerely,

Westport Periodontics

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.

Please view and share our latest COVID-19 Symptom Comparison Chart with your friends and family.
