We, like you, understand that these are challenging and unprecedented times that we are facing as a nation and community due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. To comply with the Louisiana Department of Health and increase public safety, our office will only be seeing patients for essential/emergency dental treatment effective immediately until April 17, 2020, unless otherwise stated in writing.
This means that we will not be seeing any routine hygiene patients or doing any nonessential procedures. Essential (emergency) dental treatment is defined by fever, swelling or severe pain. Louisiana State Board defines non-essential treatment as a procedure that can be delayed for 30 days in the clinical judgment of the dentist, without running an undue risk of harm to the patient.
If you have a dental emergency, please call our office at 225-647-1900. If we are unable to take your call, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding during this stressful time.
