Update 4/30/2020

*** Northwest Florida OMS update 4/30/2020

Dear Patients,

We have missed seeing you all! We hope you are safe and staying well during the pandemic. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. Our commitment to your safety has not changed.

We are happy to get back to treating the many issues that we have asked you to postpone for the past 6 weeks. Our staff will be in the office on a regular basis beginning next week, May 4, 2020!
We will resume screening and treating all of the urgent issues that require surgery.
In an effort to protect all of our patients, NWFOMS will continue telehealth services in order to evaluate all conditions and determine the need for in-office imaging, evaluation and surgery.

Infection control and patient safety have always been top priorities for our practice. We follow infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS). You will recognize some changes that have been made in an effort to protect our patients and staff. In keeping with the current guidelines set forth by our Governor, only patients will be allowed in the office. We will ask that you wait in your vehicle until we ask you to enter the office. Our office will communicate with you prior to arrival and ask some screening questions and explain our protocol for your visit.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please email us at office@northwestfloridaoms.com in order to complete your evaluation virtually and schedule a procedure. You can also call 850-478-7070 and our staff will be happy to assist you.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate welcoming back our patients safely.

Sincerely,

Dr. Laggan, Dr. Morris, and the entire staff at Northwest Florida Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
