At Maz Endodontics, we are constantly monitoring and following the guidelines developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CD) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The health and safety of our patients, staff and community has always been our highest priority. Our office has always followed strict infection control guidelines made by the American Dental Association, CDC, Cal OSHA and CDPH.
All operatory rooms and common areas are wiped down with disinfectant after each patient and around the clock. We still use rubber dams to isolate the tooth and Isolite to reduce aerosols, spatter, and airborne micron particulates. Also, have Aerosol Removal Devices and HEPA Filters. We also are wearing proper PPE while working on patients.
For the protection of all our patients and staff due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we are requesting the following.
If you have an illness or are exhibiting symptoms, we recommend you cancel and reschedule your dental appointment. Some illness and symptoms include:
- a cold of flu
- fever or nausea
- severe headaches or body aches
- muscle or stomach pain, chest pain, or difficulty breathing
- vomiting or diarrhea
- active tuberculosis (TB)
- mumps, measles, chickenpox
- other contagious diseases
NO PERSON WILL BE ALLOWED INTO THE OFFICE WITHOUT WEARING A MASK THAT COVERS THEIR NOSE.
Please DO NOT come into the office wearing gloves. We will provide you clean gloves while in our office.
As a pre caution, we do not allow anyone in our office that is not the patient or caregiver. We are limiting our waiting room to one patient at a time. Should our schedules overlap, we will ask you to simply wait outside or in your cars and someone in our office will contact you once our office is clear and has been sterilized.
Each patient will have their vitals taken while in our office. (Temperature check, blood pressure and pulse ox)
Please notify our staff before your appointment if you or someone you are in close contact with has recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVD19 or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnose with COVID 19 or who was quarantined as a precaution.
