We have always had your safety as our utmost priority and that has not changed. We continue to follow the COVID – 19 guidelines that are handed down to us from the British Columbia College of Dental Surgeons and will update and amend those guidelines as required.
WE ARE OPEN, BUT WE ARE STILL ASKING PATIENTS TO ENTER OUR FACILITY ONLY WHEN THEY HAVE SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS:
We are asking that patients refrain from bringing guests into the office unless a caregiver is required.
Please arrive at your designated time or a few minutes before to keep the amount of patients in the waiting room to a minimum.
It is still important for you to stay on top of your regular professional visits, as best as possible with COVID-19 restrictions, and also a reminder that is it as important as ever to stay on top of your home care.
DO NOT COME INTO THE OFFICE IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19
We will be pre-screening all patients at least one to two days prior to their appointment, and on the day of the appointment including a forehead thermometer scan.
No one will enter the office with symptoms or raised temperature.
By the way, this screening will include every team member each morning before work.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT, PPE, AND PHYSICAL BARRIERS
Our reception area is outfitted with a plexiglass barrier that allows for safe social distancing for those team members.
Our team members will be wearing, in addition to our previous standard of PPE, enhanced PPE which will vary. It may include gowns, caps and masks, protective eye-wear,and face shields.
SAFETY, WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE: AIR QUALITY AND OUR UVC LIGHTS:
We have installed 3 new UVC lights to our 3 modern HVac units to surgically scrub the air to provide air quality above and beyond the standards set by Public Health BC CDC and by the College of Dental Surgeons of BC.
Even though our HVac system met or exceeded the air changes per hour required by the College of Dental Surgeons of BC, we had new UVC lights installed for added peace of mind.
YOUR FACE MASK OR OURS?
Please bring your own personal mask. If you do not have one, our greeter will provide you with one to wear in the office for the time that you are not having actual dental treatment.
Please remember that all PPE is in short supply worldwide and help us preserve PPE by bringing your own mask with you.
We look forward seeing you soon!
Dr. Clancy & Dr. Al-Mosuli and your beloved Team 😊
