In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are closely following and adhering to precautions advised by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.  

We want to assure you that we are taking continuous steps to ensure that our dental office remains a safe place for every patient. It’s important for you to know that dentists of Fisher & Orfaly Dental Clinic in Salem, MA, are trained in infection control. For instance, we have been trained to prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as flu, HIV, hepatitis, and tuberculosis. The precautions we take every day will also help prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

At Fisher & Orfaly Dental Clinic in Salem, MA, we follow precautions developed by the CDC to protect both health care personnel and patients. We sterilize all instruments after each use and clean each dental treatment room after each patient visit, using surface disinfectants that kill all known infectious diseases, including coronavirus. Dedicated hand washing and one-time-use disposable materials also help maintain a safe environment for our patients. Our staff at Fisher & Orfaly Dental Clinic is regularly trained in these procedures.

At Fisher & Orfaly Dental Clinic in Salem, MA, we are continually focusing our effort on cleaning door handles, faucets, and other items with high-traffic hand touches. Magazines in our waiting areas are also a risk from frequent contact, so they have been removed.

Seeing your dentist is a vital investment for your general health. Our dental office in Salem, MA, remains open to care for our patients following the above guidelines. If you have a fever, are exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness, or have had recent contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you may be a risk to other patients or staff members. If you are experiencing fever (greater than 100.4), cough, or shortness of breath, please remain at home and contact your primary care physician immediately.  

If you would like to reschedule an upcoming appointment or talk through any concerns, please feel free to contact our office at (978) 744-1209.

Coming to Dr Orfaly is The best decision I could have made. I didn’t have a dentist for years and they saw me when I had an emergency. Now I am getting all of my dental work here, perfect caps, bridges and hygiene. I highly recommend Dr Orfaly and his staff.

After having a negative experience with a filling with a past dentist, I was nervous to go to a new dentist with tooth pain. Dr. Orfaly and team were very understanding and knowledgable when walking me through my options for a cracked tooth. 10/10 would recommend due to their professionalism, attention to detail, and level of care. Thanks team!

Dr Orfaly is the best dentist around! I have alot of anxiety around going to the dentist & Dr Orfaly always makes sure to check in to see how I'm doing & is so nice. If a referral is needed to a specialist, he makes the call for you & gets you an appt quickly (mine was even the same day) I love how they book you with the same dental hygienist for all cleanings.. Adds another level of comfort... Shoutout to mine, Kathy!
