Root Canal Safety

Our office takes the safety of our patients, team members, and families as its #1 priority!   To protect our community, our office strictly follows OSHA & TN Department of Health guidelines as well as the CDC’s Standard Precautions.  These standard precautions require appropriate personal protective equipment and that all instruments to be sterilized before patient use.   Additionally, the use of our advanced technology provides for more accurate treatment outcomes.   To ensure the highest quality of care, our office only purchases dental materials from U.S. supply companies.   We take pride in providing all patients with the very best dental care possible.

(1) Prescreening all patients on the phone and upon arrival

(4) Providing an Antiseptic Mouth Rinse before treatment
