COVID-19 UPDATES

Out of an abundance of caution and to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, certain Chickasaw Nation events, classes, facilities, etc., will be postponed, canceled or closed. For a complete list of postponements, cancellations or closures, visit the COVID-19 INFORMATION page. We will continue to update the list as the situation progresses.

The Chickasaw Nation Dental Clinic at the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center (CNMC) is in the first phase of resuming services. A clinic representative will contact all non-urgent patients to reschedule previously canceled appointments.

The first phase of reopening includes rescheduling patients who had appointments prior to COVID-19. New appointments are not available at this time.

Patients must have an appointment to enter any Chickasaw Nation Department of Health (CNDH) facility. Walk-in appointments are not available.

COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing is required for most dental procedures and preventative care treatments. Staff will navigate patients through the rapid testing process prior to appointment time. Required testing must be completed within 72 hours of a scheduled dental appointment. Appointments will be rescheduled if a patient tests positive for COVID-19.

Urgent Dental Care

Urgent dental care remains available to patients at all locations. Call the dental call center for assistance. A virtual dental visit will be scheduled on the same day to determine next steps for emergent dental patients.

For questions or assistance with emergent concerns, contact the dental call center at (580) 421-4596. The call center and clinic is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.

Urgent/emergent Care (pain/swelling) Appointments:

  • A virtual visit appointment with a dentist will assess the patient and urgency for an on-site appointment.
  • The staff will communicate next steps based on the assessment and recommendation of the dentist.
  • The virtual visit process replaces the former walk-in process. All patients must have an appointment.
