UPDATE 6/24/2020:  In compliance with Pinellas County’s mandatory mask ordinance that went into effect Wednesday, 6/24/2020; we are requiring that all patients entering our practice wear a mask or face covering until they are seated for treatment.  Surgical masks will be provided at our reception desk.

In an effort to start safely reopening our state, Governor Ron Desantis signed The State of Florida Executive Order Number 20-112, allowing dental and dental specialty offices to reopen to patients requiring non-emergency and elective procedures as of Monday, May 4, 2020.  Dr. Hedrick along with the St. Petersburg Endodontics team will be available to start seeing non-emergency patients at this time.

To accommodate our patients and referring dental practices, we will resume our normal schedule:

Monday – Wednesday, 7:00am – 7:00pm / Thursday, 8am – 5:00pm / Friday, 8am – 12:00pm

The health and well-being of our patients, team, and community remain a top priority. We are closely monitoring updates released from the CDC (Center for Disease Control), ADA (American Dental Association), AAE (American Association of Endodontists) and all levels of government for regulations and recommendations posted for health care professionals, dentists, and dental specialists in regards to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our sterilization protocol has always exceeded recommended standards. In an effort to protect our patients and staff, St. Petersburg Endodontics is taking additional precautionary measures as recommended by the CDC and ADA.

  • Patients (upon arrival at appointment) and Staff (twice daily) will be pre-screened to determine their potential risk of COVID-19 exposure or if they are displaying any flu-like symptoms, including; fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, recent loss of taste or smell.
  • Check-in Procedures – Patients will be able enter through our front lobby to check in and complete their health screening. Our lobby has been rearranged to allow for optimal social distancing. 
  • PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) – Our team will continue to utilize the appropriate protective equipment which minimizes the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

We understand that each of our patient’s comfort levels will vary.  It is our job to make you feel protected and safe; please reach out with any questions that you may have.  We are looking forward to seeing your smiles again!
