*** Northwest Florida OMS COVID-19 Update 3/20/2020

Gov. Ron DeSantis has issued Executive Order 20-72, prohibiting non-urgent / non-emergency surgeries in the state of Florida, however we will continue to be open everyday in order to treat emergency patients.

All non-essential elective medical and surgical procedures are included in order to conserve medical supplies and resources, preserve essential resources and control the potential spread of COVID-19.

NWFOMS has been following the CDC guidelines and recommendations of the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and postponing elective procedures and visits to help mitigate the spread of COVID- 19.

We ask for your assistance as Northwest Florida Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery realizes the responsibility to help our patients with non-elective surgical treatment and focus on the management of conditions that require immediate attention to relieve pain or risk of infection and to alleviate the burden on hospital emergency departments.

NWFOMS is concerned for the health and safety of our patients and staff. We continue to adhere to all CDC guidelines for health care facilities and wipe down all surfaces thoroughly between patients sanitizing all clinical spaces and other high touch areas and are currently taking additional precautionary steps.

We are instituting NO WAITING ROOM WAITING
1. Stay in your vehicle and call when you arrive.
2. We will call you when your room is ready.
3. Patients only enter through the entry on the side of the building.
4.  Patient Screening including skin temperature scanning will take place before being seated and patients will be escorted to their vehicle after the visit.

We will continue to follow the Florida department of health for specific orders and guidance.
