ATTENTION PATIENTS: We at East Tennessee Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery consider our patients’ health and safety to be our number one priority. We will continue to treat patients using standard universal precautions for barrier protection as well as the CDC guidelines for office cleanliness. Our waiting room and patient restrooms are being cleaned and sanitized daily as well as all doorknobs and handles being sanitized hourly. All magazines have been discarded from our waiting rooms.

We do not take the recent findings regarding COVID-19 lightly and wanted to reassure you of our commitment to your overall safety and well-being while under our care. Patients are welcome to wait in their cars upon arrival, we just ask that you please call us when you have arrived  so that we may bring paperwork out for you to complete. We will call you when we are ready for you.

If you or anyone in your household has experienced recent cough, fever, or other symptom of illness we ask that you reschedule your appointment for a future date.

We do plan to stay open and to observe our normal business hours at this time. We are diligently monitoring this situation and current guidelines for care. We will notify you if any changes will be necessary. We look forward to seeing you for your appointment.

All of our locations are open Monday through Friday with office hours from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

If your dentist or physician specifically referred you to one of our surgeons, let us know so that we can schedule you with that particular doctor. If you do not have a preference, you will be scheduled with the doctor who has the first available appointment in your preferred office location. Also, every effort will be made to accommodate your schedule.

Our doctors maintain a busy schedule and are also called to see emergencies. At times we are unable to adhere to a strict schedule. We ask for your understanding when we must reschedule appointments on these occasions. We will try to give you as much notice as possible. You will be given the same priority should you ever need emergency care.

Our doctors and staff realize that emergencies do occur in the oral and maxillofacial regions which require immediate treatment. During office hours, call an office directly and every effort will be made to have you seen the day you call. After hours emergencies are probably best seen in a hospital emergency room of an affiliated hospital and then referred to our offices.
