Ensuring the Best Ways to Continue Services

Update on Available CIHA Services

We appreciate your support and patience as work through processes to ensure the safest possible ways to continue care for our patients during this ongoing public health crisis.

Dental Services

For questions, please call the Dental Front Desk at 828.497.9163 ext. 6478

Same Day Emergency Triage exams: Patients having dental pain, swelling, or uncontrolled bleeding.

Elective Services: (ALL CASE-BY-CASE) For adults and children:
Exams and Cleanings for routine users of the dental clinic “pre-covid”, restorative treatment, simple extractions, etc. ELECTIVE Procedures require a NEGATIVE MOLECULAR PRE-PROCEDURE COVID TEST.

This means that the Dental Clinic will work with each patient to determine when to schedule their COVID-19 test due to the quarantine protocols for potential exposures. If a patient decides to schedule a COVID-19 test without direction from the Dental Clinic, it may result in a delay in scheduling the dental treatment needed at that time.

Emergent Services: Any treatment deemed emergent due to infection or trauma. The performing Dentist will determine which pre-procedure COVID-19 test shall be used before performing dental treatment.

*Denture/Partial program is available to eligible patients.
