5. Should I be worried about coming to the doctor/dentist with everything I’m hearing about Ebola?

 

SHORT ANSWER… Not at all!

 

While we are following the guidelines the CDC has recommended, there is no cause for panic.

You may be asked if you have recently been overseas at your new patient appointment

and/or have your temperature taken if you are exhibiting any cold/flu like symptoms.
