Sterilization Protocol

Northwest Endodontics, Where Safety Always Comes First

The team at Northwest Endodontics always puts health and safety first. We adhere to strict sterilization protocols and continuously strive to maintain a clean and safe office environment.

Our Enhanced Sterilization Protocol and Office Safety Standards

Health, safety, and sterilization have always been integral components in running a healthcare practice. We have strict sterilization standards in place to ensure the safety of our patients inside our offices and treatment areas in addition to the cleanliness of our treatment tools.

Safety Protocols Continuously Updated to Meet Industry Standards

To ensure our offices are always compliant, clean, safe, and up to the highest standards, we monitor and closely follow the ever-changing rules, regulations, and recommendations put forth by health and safety organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, OSHA, the American Association of Endodontists, and the Illinois Department of Public Health.

High-Traffic Sterilization and Frequent Office Cleaning

We have implemented thorough sterilization protocols for high-traffic areas within our offices in addition to our rigorous office cleaning procedures.

Reduced Exposure Risk

We have made every possible effort to reduce the potential disease exposure risk inside our offices. We are happy to accommodate any of your requests, such as booking you for early morning appointments and/or allowing you to check in for your appointment from the comfort of your vehicle.

Additional COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Our offices follow all of the recommended and required sterilization, social distancing, and masking protocols as required or recommended by the CDC, our state, and local government.

Maintaining Your Oral Health Should Always Be a Priority

Many patients have expressed concern about accessing oral health care during the ongoing pandemic. Dental offices statistically have a lower incidence rate of COVID-19 cases than in other general public settings due to the universal precautions practiced in these areas which were already health and safety-conscious before the pandemic.

Of course, spending time in any public space around other people can put you at risk of contracting COVID-19. However, failing to maintain your oral health by getting the treatment you need can also put your general health at risk.

We strive to create a safe and sterile office space and encourage our patients to continue seeking the oral health care they need to keep their bodies healthy.

If you have any concerns about COVID-19, our health and safety protocols, your own health history, or if you are in a high-risk category for serious illness with COVID-19, we welcome you to contact our office to discuss your concerns and allow us to provide you with the safest endodontic treatment experience possible.
