How to get rid of these dots



I am trying to read from an word file. its a template with table(customized) . So when i am trying to read text from the word file , for any string i am trying to extract its followed by the ‘.’. Its not a dot character for sure as replace the dot character wont work. Any idea how to get rid of the bullet point kind of character in the string. The concern is i am not able to locate what kind of character this would be.

its kind of black circle character, but not sure.
