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.
