Important Information Regarding COVID-19
We trust you and yours are well and have successfully navigated the challenges of the COVID-19
pandemic. Like you, we look forward to assuming our “new normal” soon.
We are continuously monitoring the U.S. Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, National Institutes of Health, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and multiple Ohio regulatory agencies to provide a safe environment for you, our staff, and ourselves. As such, our team feels it is necessary to describe several new important protocols that we have implemented to ensure your level of comfort and safety when you visit our office:
o We will continue to prioritize urgent care.
o We ask that you complete your patient registration online (www.beachwoodendo.com) prior
to arriving for your appointment.
o Anyone accompanying you should remain in the car unless:
o the patient is a minor.
o the patient requires mobility assistance getting into and out of the office.
o the patient has medicated prior to their appointment.
o You must wear a mask when entering the office.
o Once in the treatment room we will require that you rinse with an iodine* mouth rinse for thirty seconds, ask you several questions about your health history, and review your dental issue(s). [*Patients with an iodine allergy will be supplied an alternate product.]
Beachwood Endodontic Specialists has been exercising “Universal Precautions” in our practice since its inception more than thirty years ago. We take every safeguard to prevent transmission of diseases. These measures include sanitization of surfaces, sterilization of instruments, and the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) by our staff. Additional safety methods and measures will be taken for your protection. You will recognize some of the practices while others will be completed behind the scenes.
We appreciate your trust and confidence in Beachwood Endodontic Specialists and want to reassure you that we will continue to do everything possible to ensure your safety. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you. We are happy to discuss your individual concerns.
Thank you for your patience during these unique and trying times. Stay well!
Steven J. Katz, D.D.S., M.S., Tera E. Bonar, D.M.D., M.S., & Staff
