Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Southwest Florida Oral & Facial Surgery values the health and well-being of our staff, our patients, our referral offices, and our community. To that end, we will need to make some modifications as to how we provide care in the current environment, while complying with state and federal mandates as well as the recommendations of the CDC, the ADA, the Department of Health, and related agencies.
Due to Executive Order 20-72, “All health care practitioners licensed in the State of Florida, including dentists, shall immediately cease performing elective services…Permissible procedures include dental care related to the relief of pain and the management of infection.”
Our Cape Coral office is currently closed, but we will continue to provide emergency oral surgery care to treat pain, infection, trauma, and post-surgery complications in our Fort Myers office located at 8267 College Parkway, Fort Myers, FL 33919. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please call our office at 239-936-8151. Thank you.
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. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
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.
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.
