We care about our patients, our staff and our community greatly. Metropolitan Endodontics followed Governor Ralph Northam, Dr. Norm Oliver, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Health executive order and the ADA’s recommendations, and closed our office and limited our care to emergency and urgent cases.
We continue to stay fully committed to our community, and we will continue to do our part to control hospital emergency room traffic by treating dental emergencies here. As we are re-opening our doors, we continue to follow all guidelines to better serve our patients, community and staff. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
We have always followed and continue to follow infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, our staff and community. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We implemented these new protocols to help protect you as well as our team.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 703-992-7202.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our neighbors and friends.
Dr. Shambayati, and our great staff at Metropolitan Endodontics
