For the next three weeks, St. Charles Hospital’s dental clinic will not be seeing patients for non-emergency care in an effort to limit patient and staff exposure to the coronavirus.

A spokesperson for the hospital said the halt on dental services began effective Monday, March 23.

Patients with standard care appointments will be contacted to reschedule, and those with emergency issues will receive a health screening first, the hospital official told GreaterPortJeff.

Patients with standard care appointments will be contacted to reschedule.
