Infection Prevention and Control Lapse at Kawartha Endodontics

Posted on Thursday September 19, 2019

Peterborough Public Health is reaching out to advise patients of Kawartha Endodontics about a potential risk of bloodborne infection. Patients of Kawartha Endodontics who received treatment before July 16, 2019 are being advised to make an appointment with their healthcare provider to discuss testing for bloodborne infections, specifically hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).  

Kawartha Endodontics received referrals from across central Ontario, so this advisory is relevant to their patients living outside the Peterborough area who had treatment prior to July 16, 2019 as well.

A dedicated webpage has been set up for patients with detailed information here:

Further information is provided in the attached news release and audio clip by Dr. Rosana Salvaterra, Medical Officer of Health.
