PHOENIX, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Westwind Integrated Health now offers extended hours, including weekend hours, to make it more convenient for patients to receive care. While many businesses are reducing working hours due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Westwind Integrated Health team is taking action to extend their availability in order to provide primary care and dental care in Phoenix, AZ to those who need it most right now.
With a new spike in COVID-19 cases across the country, Westwind Integrated Health (WIH) is urging patients to not let necessary primary care or dental care fall by the wayside. The doctors and dentists of WIH stand firmly behind the concept of whole-body health. This means, if one part of the body is unhealthy, it weakens the strength of the body as a whole. This is especially important to consider as the world is fighting the coronavirus.
The team at WIH wants to assure that their community keeps their whole body healthy and that no one misses the opportunity to receive necessary primary care or dental care due to time restrictions. In an effort to keep their community's health in optimum condition, WIH is now offering their services, including well visits, dental implants, laser gum disease treatment, and emergency dental care, during extended weekday and weekend hours.
Research shows a connection between oral health concerns such as gum disease, and whole-body concerns such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. A recent study from the American Dental Association revealed that dentists are seeing a rise in stress-related oral health conditions since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. This research backs WIH's stance that the body, mind, and mouth are connected and should be cared for as a whole. With that goal in mind, WIH can provide gum disease treatment and a well visit appointment in the same day. Similarly, a person can receive dental implants and discuss proper nutrition with their general practitioner in the same appointment. The doctors and dentists at WIH want their patients to leave the office in the healthiest state possible, and are able to do so with this integrated approach.
As the Phoenix community slowly returns to working full-time, Westwind Integrated Health is adjusting working hours to meet its needs. Each WIH location stays open until 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Their downtown office opens early, at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday, and the main Phoenix location is open 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
Another benefit of these extended hours is the ability to space out appointments. Westwind Integrated Health is doing everything in their power to stop the spread of COVID-19. They are spacing out appointments, limiting the number of people allowed in the office at a time, and following strict sanitization protocols to keep their patients and staff safe and protected.
