COVID-19 Update

As of June 1, 2020, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario has given all dental offices the green light to reopen their doors to start providing non-essential and elective care along with essential services, emergency and urgent care.

We have received new guidelines and implemented new infection control protocols to make sure our patients and staff can feel safe.

The safety of all our patients and staff is our number one priority and we will do anything that is necessary to keep everyone safe while in our office.

In the past few weeks, we have worked very hard to adjust our office to the new infection control protocols. Here is a list of things we have done to help our patients feel safe and comfortable when coming to their dental appointment. 

Booking Appointments

When you call our dental office we will ask you for information regarding your situation, including whether you have recently travelled outside Canada or have any COVID-19 symptoms, an give you advice about the next steps.

After you schedule your dental appointment we will be sending you an email or text with a COVID-19 form to complete and sign before your dental visit.

New Patient Check-in

We have implemented a new process to check-in all our patients here is a quick overview.

  • All patients are asked to call the office to check-in from their car or building lobby.
  • The patient's temperature will be taken and recorded at their arrival.
  • Patients are not allowed to bring a guest to their appointment unless it is extremely necessary.
  • Children can bring one parent to their appointment.
  • Patients will require to wear a mask when entering our facility. A mask can be provided at reception if needed. 
  • Walk-in appointments are not allowed.
  • All patients will be required to perform hand hygiene using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water, as soon as they enter the office.

Dentists' Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

When you visit our office you will notice a lot of changes including our awesome new look.

All dentists, hygienists and support staff will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, protective eyewear, masks and protective clothing. 

Be sure we still are the same awesome people under all this equipment.
