As our local community continues to grapple with the global pandemic that is COVID-19, we want to assure you of our utmost commitment to ensuring the safety of all our patients and staff. Over the years, we have established ourselves as a reputable dental practice that is centered on exceptional and personalized dental care. We remain dedicated to providing outstanding service to our patients.
While safety has always been a priority of ours, the prevailing circumstances call for greater vigilance. We’re empowering ourselves and our patients in this fight against COVID-19 by putting in place adequate measures, including:
We’re screening all our patients before admitting them to our premises. During the screening process, we’ll check your temperature as well as ask you relevant questions that will help us determine if you may have been exposed to the coronavirus in the preceding days or weeks. We encourage our patients to be truthful when responding to these questions.
We have adopted the use of paperless or electronic forms as a way of eliminating contact during the patient registration process.
Medical Grade HEPA Air Filters
As a way of guaranteeing fresh air and ensuring that our premises are pollutant and pathogen-free, we have invested in medical-grade HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters. HEPA filters capture pollutants and microbes (including bacteria and viruses) that linger in the air, particularly in shared spaces, with 99.5% efficiency.
Social Distancing in Waiting Rooms/Staggered Appointments
We’re encouraging social distancing in our premises by limiting the number of people in our waiting rooms. We’ve been able to achieve this by staggering our appointments, which also gives us sufficient time to sanitize our premises in between treatment sessions. At the same time, we’re encouraging our patients to come unaccompanied for their appointments or bring a maximum of one companion if you must be accompanied.
KN95 Masks and Goggles on All Staff
During your appointment, you’ll notice that all our staff are now wearing KN95 masks as well as goggles. The personal protective equipment worn by our team keeps them safe and protects our patients too.
