There are a number of protocols that have been implemented which change the way we see patients at our office going forward. These measures are in line with public health recommendations and allow us to do our part in reducing the risks of Covid-19 community transmission. The following are some of the strategies implemented:
-pre screen all staff prior to presenting to the workplace
-pre screen patients for symptoms and risk factors
-appointments only, no walk-ins at this time
-maintain physical distancing where possible
-ask that all patients present to the office wearing a mask
-hand sanitizer available to our patients
-removed all common contact items (ex. magazines etc) from our waiting areas
-reduced patient appointment overlap, so that patients need not wait in common areas and can be seated in the dental chair immediately
-sanitize all common contact areas between each patient interaction (payment machines, counters, handles, restrooms etc)
-we ask that you only present with children if they have an appointment; we ask that you have strict control over your child and their activities, contact and movement within our facility.
-we may recommend deferring certain procedures
If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call and we'll be happy to answer them for you.
