AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR VALUED PATIENTS, FAMILIES & REFERRAL OFFICES
RE: CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
In the wake of our community being affected by the COVID-19 virus, we are dedicated to do our part to decrease the spread of the virus; while at the same time being available to patients in need of care.
Our office will remain open and will evaluate and triage all emergency patients. Based on the details of each case, we will determine if any surgical treatment is essential and immediately medically necessary. We will continue to provide the same safe and compassionate care we have for over 30 years.
We have also added the option of TeleDentistry Consultaions for non-emergent patients. This will allow the use of technology, like "Zoom" to discuss extractions, bone grafting, implants, surgical orthodontic treatment , jaw joint disorders as well as All-on-Four (Teeth in a Day).
Additionally, we want to share the measures we have in place to protect the health of our patients, staff and doctors:
We have always and continue to follow a strict cleaning procedure before and after each patient. Recently, we have intensified our daily cleaning of all surfaces.
Keeping You Safe:
In addition to the having ill employees remain out of the office, we are monitoring the temperature of every employee as they arrive to work each day. Additionally, every patient is required to disinfect their hands as soon as they arrive. When the patients are in the clinical area, their temperature is taken (as well as any escort if present). If fever or other symptoms are present, the patient is given a mask and asked to exit & reschedule immediately.
Staying Home When Sick:
Staff from our office speaks directly to each patient to ask screening questions prior to each appointment to ensure that patients who are not feeling well, showing any cold or flu-like symptoms, who have been in contact with a person thought to be infected or shown to be infected with the virus reschedule their appointments without penalty.
Our staff meets regularly and is in close contact with local and regional health officials regarding the latest guidelines. Any procedural adjustments will be made immediately as indicated.
San Antonio Oral Surgery & Dental Implants has always followed stringent safety & health guidelines as established by OSHA, American Association of Maxillofacial Surgeons, and American Dental Association, to ensure a safe workplace. We are diligently following additional CDC guidelines at this time as well. Your health and well-being are our top priority, and we look forward to continuing to serve you. Thank you for your continued trust in us.

A Technology-Driven Oral Surgery Practice
We believe in using technology to deliver the best experience and results possible for our patients. Our goal is to decrease your treatment time and reduce any invasive surgery to a minimum. Additionally, we’ve chosen to utilize and invest in the best technology to allow us to perform surgical procedures more precisely, and with more predictable outcomes. Some of the technology we utilize includes:
Digital Imaging – We use digital X-rays for several reasons. First, there are no harsh chemicals associated with digital X-rays because there is no film to process. Second, radiation exposure to the patient is reduced. And finally, digital images can be easy to share with the patient, a referral source, or another specialist.
Cone Beam CT – A cone beam CT is a special type of digital x-ray that uses 3-D imaging. A cone beam CT scan allows the surgeon to see hidden structures in your mouth and jaw in 3-D, which aids in dental implant cases, bone pathology cases, and planning virtual surgery.
Computer-Guided Surgery – We use digital data from cone beam CT scans to perform “virtual surgery” to determine the ideal placement for dental implants. This data then can be used to fabricate surgical guides and ensure that you’ll get an extremely accurate implant placement, spend less time in surgery, and enjoy a less-invasive surgical procedure.
Sedation Options - At San Antonio Oral Surgery, we understand that going to the dentist or oral surgeon isn’t easy for everyone. For those who suffer from anxiety and/or a dental phobia, we offer several options for sedation dentistry to ensure you have a comfortable visit.
