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. 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.

NOTICE: EFFECTIVE MARCH 23, 2020 To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, we have had to postpone all elective dental procedures until further notice from Federal and State government officials.

In addition, based upon the American Dental Association’s recommendations at this time, we have been mandated to ONLY provide EMERGENCY DENTAL SERVICES to :

1. Patients who are currently in pain

2. Patients with facial swelling and may require antibiotics

If your child has one of these symptoms please call The W Dental Group Phone Number 314-473-1109 and leave a message on our voicemail system or direct message Dr. Whitaker, using Messenger on Facebook. Please be sure to include your complete name, date of birth, and a phone number where you can be reached.
