I see endodontics patients and we are continuing to provide treatment at NDCS for those who are in pain. I do get worried but I remind myself that I am properly protected with PPE. I also make it a point to practise good hand hygiene by using hand rub frequently and washing my hands thoroughly. My main challenge during this time is having to inform patients that their appointments need to be rescheduled because of the circuit-breaker restrictions. Many want to get their treatments done quickly, and do not understand why they have to wait. While work can get stressful, I get through it by talking things out with my friends.
