We hope our extended patient family is keeping healthy and mentally positive during this COVID-19 pandemic that is affecting our world.

The ADA issued an updated interim recommendation that “dentists keep their offices closed to all but urgent and emergency procedures until April 30 at the earliest.” The interim recommendation is in keeping with the recent U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation to perform only emergency or urgent dental care.

With that recommendation, Licata Dental will now be closed for routine, elective dental procedures until at least May 4, 2020. If you have a scheduled appointment with us between now and May 4, look for a call to come in a few days where we will find another time to move your appointment. Or you can call us at 636-532-2101. If we are not in the office, please leave us a message. Someone will return your call, usually by the next business day.

We are here for you in other ways, too. As an essential business, we can provide dental care for urgent emergencies from the hours of 9 am to 11 am (or by appointment) on most business days. If you have a dental emergency, please call 636-532-2101.

You can also contact us by text or voicemail at the same number, 636-532-2101. Or you can reach us by email at office@licatadental.com. If in need, we are here to help you with any dental concern or question that you may have. We miss our patients! We hope everyone continues in these weeks ahead with full good health and good spirits!
