We are so happy to have reopened our dental practice and be reunited with our valued patients. We understand that we are living in a very different world than we were just a few months ago. We want to share a few of the new precautionary measures our practice is taking so you can feel confident booking your next appointment.
The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario recommends that “prior to scheduling an appointment, dentists must ensure that patients are screened for COVID-19.” When booking your next appointment, please expect one of our team members to reach out with more information about the screening process.
Call Upon Arrival
All rooms are sanitized and disinfected between patients, so sometimes we need a bit of extra time before your appointment. To avoid having too many people in the office at once, please give us a call when you arrive!
Hand Sanitizing Stations
When you enter our office, you’ll notice that we have laid out multiple bottles of hand sanitizer. We encourage everyone who comes in to use it upon arrival and as many times as you feel necessary!
Plexiglass Shields at Reception
You have probably already seen these shields at grocery stores and other businesses. We have installed new plexiglass shields at our reception to better protect our team and patients from the transmission of germs and viruses.
Personal Protective Equipment
All patients are required to wear a face mask when visiting our office. As stated in the City Of Toronto’s new bylaw “wearing a mask or face covering will be required in indoor public spaces beginning July 7, 2020.” In addition, all staff will be wearing additional PPE on top of their regular uniforms and face masks.
Socially Distanced Lounge
If you have to wait to be seen by your dentist, you’ll be comfortable and at least 6-feet away from others in our new socially distanced lounge.
We have added air purifiers to our office to help reduce any airborne contaminants – including germs and viruses.
Coffee To Go!
While we are no longer permitted to offer coffee or beverages within our office, we are happy to provide a complimentary cup of coffee on your way out! Because who doesn’t need a pick-me-up nowadays?
