Important Information Regarding COVID-19
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread through the community, Beachwood Endodontic Specialists’ top priority remains the health, safety and well-being of our patients, our staff, as well as the general public. In light of Governor DeWine’s latest COVID-19 recommendations, as well as those of the Ohio State Dental Board and the Ohio Dental Association’s executive committee, we are making changes to office operations to protect our patients and team. The general guideline is: “Continue to allow access to necessary and emergency dental services.”
We are continually taking precautionary measures to reduce the spread of germs and viruses by regularly wiping down public areas, trying to reduce aerosols and creating a schedule to reduce patient interactions that could result in an infection. Emergency treatment will be conducted as needed for patients who are experiencing dental pain and/or infection. All other patients are being asked to postpone appointments for at least 4 weeks, but to advise us if their situation changes. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding.
We will keep our dental office staffed, potentially for limited hours moving forward. We are experiencing a high level of calls and emails at this time so please leave us a message and we will reach out to you as soon as possible. We have a responsibility in the prevention and mitigation efforts during this outbreak. These operations will change as the situation continues to evolve. We will continue monitoring the recommendations of the CDC, ADA, ODA, ODH, and OSDB.
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
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. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
