TexasOMS Coronavirus Update

To All Patients and Friends of Texas Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery:

We have been very blessed that, to date, none of our team members has developed COVID-19, the viral illness caused by the novel coronavirus. We have continued to take extraordinary precautions to preserve the health and safety of our employees and patients. As everyone knows, this is a very fluid situation which has been changing significantly on a daily basis.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, and in compliance with local, state and national requirements, effective today we are currently not performing elective surgery or seeing patients for routine office visits or consultations. We are, however, available for true emergencies. All scheduled patients will be contacted regarding your appointments.

Dr. Bates continues to take emergency calls at local hospital emergency rooms, and is readily available should the need arise. If you need to reach Dr. Bates, please don’t hesitate to call our office number, 214-824-8960, and simply follow the prompts to leave an urgent message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.

Our prayer is for a rapid and complete resolution of the coronavirus panepidemic, as well as for the safety and health of all our patients and friends. We look forward to resuming normal function at the earliest possible time. In the meantime, please reach out to us with any questions or concerns at info@texasoms.com or by phone at 214-824-8960.

Respectfully yours,
The Team at Texas Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
