Given the outbreak of COVID-19 virus, we have made the difficult, but important, decision to postpone any non-emergent appointments. You can be assured that this decision was not made lightly but was made to protect patients, staff and families.

Given the closure, you may have a few questions.  

Will this delay my treatment? 

We know part of successful orthodontic treatment is showing up for your appointments. Since that’s not an option under these unusual circumstances, it’s okay. Don’t panic. Though your appointments are scheduled out to achieve maximum success, this hiccup shouldn’t have much of an impact on your overall treatment plan. Given the situation, we will work hard to get your treatment plan back on track when we reopen.  

You can help keep treatment on track by continuing to be compliant with Dr. Oubre and Dr. Matt’s directions, avoiding hard and sticky foods and keeping your teeth clean.  With limited appointments available, now is not the time to be breaking brackets, and keeping your teeth clean will ensure the best possible result.

What now?  

We will do our absolute best to keep you all informed—via our website and Facebook page—on when we will be able to get back into the office and start seeing all of our patient’s again.

A timeline as to when we can reopen is somewhat out of our hands, but you can rest assured we are making decisions with your best interest in mind, both with your treatment and your safety.  

What is “essential dental care.” What does that mean?  

If you have an urgent need during this time, such as pain or injury, we will be available for emergency appointments. Please contact our office at (337)988-2025 to determine the best course of action for your specific situation. 

There’s a lot of uncertainty right now, but what’s one thing we know for sure?  

We are looking forward to seeing you back in our office as soon as possible!
