COVID-19 Office Precautions

We have instituted all the mandated guidelines and added more safety precautions of our own.  Every patient will be pre-screened over the phone prior to ever entering the facility.  Upon arrival, every patient will be scanned for elevated temperature and asked to sanitize their hands.  Our waiting room is arranged to maintain spacing and our schedule has been modified to prevent overlap of multiple patients.  Extra sanitizing is occurring in every room throughout the day.  In each operatory we have in-line fan units that are moving air from the treatment areas to the outside of the building creating a constant airflow.  As an endodontic practice, we have always used a rubber dam which shields the mouth during treatment, but we are now sanitizing the tooth(teeth) to be treated prior to initiating procedures to further reduce contaminated aerosols.
