During this time when COVID-19 is impacting so much of our every day life, personally and professionally, there are a few things we want you to be assured of.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. We have always followed infection control guidelines and will continue to do so.

Our office follows all recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so we are up to date on any new guidance that may be issued. 

These are some things we are doing to help continue to protect our patients and staff:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You'll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines since they are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you're offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We ask that you let us know when you have arrived for your appointment and wait in your car. We will then call you when we are ready for you to come inside. 
  • If you have a mask, please wear it to your appointment.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment please call our office at 304-343-2799.

We look forward to treating all of our endodontic patients in a safe and comfortable environment.
