At Endodontics P.A., we have and will continue to strictly adhere to up-to-date infection control and safety guidelines set forth by the ADA/MSDA, CDC, and OSHA. Recently, our team has completed refresher OSHA training in proper hand washing techniques, decontamination of instruments, disinfecting potentially contaminated surfaces and appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE) while caring for patients. 

Here are some of the extra precautions our office has made to ensure a safe visit for our patients and staff:

  • You will be asked pre-screening questions regarding COVID-19 symptoms at the time your appointment is made and again when you arrive to your appointment. You will be asked about any COVID-19-related symptoms & contact with any COVID-19 positive individuals.

  • Appointments will be made to allow social distancing and to allow ample time between patient visits. In most instances, there will be only one patient in the office at the same time.

  • Masks must be worn when you enter the office. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival & hand sanitizer will be available for your use.

  • In order to limit the number of people in the office, only patients will be allowed into the office unless assistance is required.

  • All waiting room amenities (magazines, coffee, etc.) have been removed as these items are difficult to disinfect.

  • All areas of the office, both waiting room and treatment rooms, will be carefully cleaned and disinfected following every patient.

  • You will also notice our doctors and staff wearing extra layers of protective gear (N95 masks, face shields, gowns, etc.).

  • Employees complete a health screening upon office arrival each day, including temperature checks.
