Patients in Pain – During Current Crisis

Dental pain is very debilitating and most patients need to have it treated as soon as possible. This can be problematic during the current crisis.

Dr John Lordan and his staff at Northbrook Endodontics are now in a position to safely treat and deal with patients in pain that require root canal treatment during the current Covid-19 crisis.

Our patients health and wellbeing has always been our top priority and we take every precaution to make sure our patients are not exposed to viruses or infections in our office.

Be assured we are taking even more precautions during the heightened global crises including screening patients to ensure they are not sick when they arrive and thoroughly disinfecting all equipment and surfaces before and after the patient leaves our office.

We are a low volume operation. We have adapted our patient scheduling to ensure there is no risk of infection from exposure to other patients and if you have any ongoing dental pain issue contact Mary on 01 4970491 or

Be assured of your safety with us

Dr Lordan is in continual contact with endodontic specialist colleagues in US, Asia and Europe monitoring any changes in PPE protocols for provision of endodontic treatment in then safest environment for patients and staff.

These include use of the rubber dam, proper masks and high evacuation suction. Along with the standard safety and sterilization precautions regularly implemented, we are taking additional prevention steps including:

  • Screening patients for travel history for signs and symptoms of infections.
  • Screening questionnaire for COVID-19.
  • Having all staff, patients, family members wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon arrival.
  • Taking patients temperature pretreatment.
