Important Information Regarding COVID-19
We, at River Heights Endodontics, are incredibly serious about our responsibilities to our patients, referring dentists, staff, families and community amidst the challenges brought by COVID-19. We face this pandemic together, and would like to outline how we as an endodontic team will proceed in service of these responsibilities.
We feel a strong moral and ethical responsibility to our patients and community to provide emergency care for those who might otherwise seek attention in our overcrowded ER facilities. Though most endodontic treatments are not considered elective, some are more urgent than others and may require emergency treatment to avoid significant adverse health consequences.
Please be assured that we are taking every precaution in infection control. In addition to all the recommended personal protective equipment and disinfection protocols, we will be initiating policies that go above and beyond the basic requirements of OSHA and infection control. Throughout the day we will be sanitizing door handles, electronics, and surfaces that patients contact in common areas. We will remove magazines and brochures from the reception and operatories. We will make hand sanitizer and surgical masks available to patients at the front desk when they arrive. We have equipped our office with active Hepa filtration and are utilizing a number of techniques to reduce transmission risks within the office.
We ask patients who are referred for care with our office to complete and submit the registration forms or arrive 15 minutes early to allow for completion upon arrival.
We look forward to working with you.
Drs. Ben Fravel and Aaron Wachlarowicz
