District Endodontics COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Safety Disclaimer
On March 16, 2020, the (ADA) has strongly recommended that dentists voluntarily suspend non-essential or non-urgent care for the next twenty (21) days.
COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, typically between people who are in close contact with one another (within six  feet) and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. People are thought to be most contagious when they are symptomatic. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there is a chance that the virus may also spread via asymptomatic carriers (people who do not yet exhibit visible signs of sickness); and by touching an infected surface or object and then touching your mouth, nose, or possibly eyes.
Please note that our office will be open on select days at a limited capacity to accommodate patients that are experiencing true dental emergencies. We will continue to do so for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, as long as we are not mandated otherwise by local and federal guidelines.
For patients that feel they are in need such emergency care, we will continue to operate with the following guidelines:
- All patients will be screened. If you have any symptoms including, but not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, you will be directed to urgent care for further evaluation and testing. For your safety and the safety of others we will be taking your temperature upon check in to ensure you do not have a fever above 99.6 F.
- We will be adjusting appointment times and lengths in order to minimize any patient interaction in the waiting room.
- Please only bring someone with you if absolutely necessary (i.e. guardian, translator, etc).
- Please make every effort to complete your registration forms online prior to arriving at the office.
We have always been and continue to be committed to keeping our office impeccably clean and sanitized and follow the stringent safety and infection control protocols as dictated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We know that some of these and other changes may be inconvenient for you. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these unprecedented circumstances. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. Please check back with us regularly for any changes or updates to this information.
