Important Information Regarding COVID-19
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. At Rochester Endodontics, we are always concerned about providing the best possible endodontic care, and also protecting our patients and ourselves from exposure to pathogens. As standard daily operating procedure, all treatment rooms are disinfected and thoroughly cleaned before and after each patient is treated. All equipment is cleaned and sterilized by hospital standards as recommended by the CDC, Joint Commission, and AAMI (Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation). The AAMI specifically has published resources designed for healthcare delivery organizations to reduce the risk of transmitting healthcare-associated infections. In addition, we disinfect the door handles and patient waiting area daily, and wash our hands before and after EVERY patient interaction. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Due to the NY state mandate, all routine and non-emergent care is temporarily paused. Yes, we are still open, BUT only for extreme swelling, infection, and severe pain issues that cannot be managed by medications. All other care will be postponed until the mandate is lifted. Also, to ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please do not leave your home if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
