St. Louis South Oral Surgery’s Update To Coronavirus
Updated March 27th, 2020 – We are now offering fully secured video consultations along with in-person consultations for emergency cases showing signs of severe pain, bleeding, infection, lesions, & trauma.
Everyone is aware of the Coronavirus outbreak and the recommendations given to keep us all safe. I want to reassure you that in our oral surgery office, we routinely take measures to protect against any outbreak or disease and we will continue to do so through this virus as well.
As you know we consistently wear and masks gloves during treatment, plus we disinfect surfaces and sterilize equipment between patients. Those normal universal precautions, as well as a number of extra ones, as recommended by the CDC and ADA, have been implemented & are in place to keep you and our team safe. You can see many of these precautions in our update below from March 16th.
We will request that if you have a cold, temperature or have been exposed to COVID-19 please cancel your appointment. We will be business as usual with all the necessary precautions to keep us all safe.

Dear Patients, Visitors, Family & Friends
Though we are taking extreme precautions to mitigate any risks of the pandemic caused by COVID-19 for our patients and staff, we have still received many questions and wished to proactively address how we are responding:
- As of this writing, we are still open for business at our physical office location.
- We have implemented the CDC guidelines of ‘social distancing’ and zero-touch in-person meetings.
- Business personnel have been busy with extra cleanings of the office and other high-touch areas.
- We will immediately implement any new CDC guidelines as this pandemic unfolds.
There are simple things the CDC recommends you do to help keep yourself and others healthy while visiting our location:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
We will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and make every attempt to keep you informed. Emergency notifications to staff and patients will be conducted through our emergency communication channels including text notifications, telephone calls, and communicated directly to customers.
