Keeping You Safe

Covid-19 Protocol

Wells Endodontics has been practicing universal precautions at our office since we opened in 2007, and have been following every recommendation by the ADA and CDC, but we’re taking that even further now, to ensure your safety.

Our safety standards:

 

  • Our team is trained in proper hand washing and in the proper PPE (personal protective equipment) practices.

  • Any team member that is not feeling well is required to stay home.

  • All team member’s temperature is taken at the beginning of the day and will be sent home with a temperature above 100.2 F

  • We screen everyone before appointments to make sure that you are feeling well before you come in.

  • Patients are booked in such a way to limit any possible interaction they may have with each other.

  • If a patient is being accompanied, their escort should wait in the car to limit the number of people in the office (except for a parent accompanying a child)

  • We regularly check temperatures of each team member and patient.

  • We have N95 Face masks, eye protection or face shields, gloves, and clean scrubs and gowns are worn by the clinical team.

  • We sterilize the entire office including all treatment rooms with hypochlorous fogging during the week.

  • We use a rubber dam for all procedures which prevents anything from entering your mouth along with high suction evacuation to keep the aerosols from leaving the immediate area, cutting down the risk to everyone.

  • Every instrument goes through a detailed sterilization process of rinsing, ultrasonic rinsing, and heat sterilization in a bag. 

  • We run weekly spore tests on our sterilizers to make sure they are able to kill the toughest organisms known to medical science, every single week.

  • We are constantly wiping down any high-touched surface, including door knobs, countertops, light switches, pens, drawer pulls, etc. 

  • We have a very advanced air purification system in the office. It eliminates virtually all contaminants from the air and on surfaces, including bacteria and viruses. Because of this high air flow, we recommend you bring a sweater or light jacket when you come to our office.

 

We encourage everyone in our community to continue to take steps to minimize the spread of the virus, as dictated by the CDC. If you have a question about an upcoming appointment, please contact us.
