COVID-19 (Coronavirus) UPDATE
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety and health.
The Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS), AAE, CDC, State and federal authorities, have recommended limiting non-urgent dental treatment and we intend to do so while remaining available to any patient who seeks emergency care. Please be advised that our hours may change, and certain locations may close on the basis of demand for our services. If you experience tooth trauma, severe pain or swelling, please call the Danvers office at (978) 750-4500 or Salem office at (978) 745-6900 so we can evaluate your needs. If you are seen, please be aware that the Board of Health, with the recommendation of the CDC and state authorities, has determined that any person entering an essential business must be wearing a cloth face covering or mask. We are reminding all patients to comply with this requirement by wearing a face covering or mask into the office.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. We have been and will continue to follow all guidelines for patient emergencies and infection control during this COVID-19 epidemic recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), the American Dental Association (ADA), the MDS, and the CDC. Follow these links for information from these agencies on how we are doing everything we can to keep you safe.
In addition to universal precautions and infection control procedures we normally practice, we have implemented additional protocols to keep you and your family healthy during your visit:
• Our offices have been thoroughly cleaned and decluttered. You will notice droplet barriers at our front desk and hand sanitizer stations.
• We will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions when you check-in for your appointment.
• If possible, please visit our website under Patient Information to pre-register and print/fill out additional forms and bring them with you.
• In an effort to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time, we encourage you to check in from the parking lot by calling our office. Please wait in your car until we are ready to see you. If you don’t have completed paperwork, we will provide it for you to fill out while you are waiting in your car to be seen. We encourage anyone needing help to have that person escort you to our door, where our staff will greet you, then to wait in your car until the appointment is over at which time we will call you.
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
• We will take your temperature using a contactless thermometer before you enter the treatment area.
• Patients who can safely use mouth rinse will be asked to rinse their mouth with an antimicrobial mouth rinse prior to treatment.
• Our staff will wear all appropriate additional Covid-19 recommended PPE.
Our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our patients, families, and staff. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. We will provide updates here on our website, and Facebook where you can follow us at https://www.facebook.com/endoincrootcanalspecialists.
Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding during this difficult time.

What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry recognized by the American Dental Association involving treatment of the pulp (root canal) and surrounding tissues of the tooth. The word “endodontic” comes from “endo” meaning inside and “odont” meaning tooth. Endodontists are dentists who have specialized in this field. Learn more >>>

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year.
