With COVID restrictions easing in Nova Scotia, rest assured your health and safety remain our number one priority. Please note that we are following the guidelines set by the Provincial Dental Board of Nova Scotia Therefore, masks are still required for patients and staff within our office, until we receive guidance otherwise from the board.
Staying on track with your oral health is fundamental to caring for your overall health. We continue to follow strict safety guidelines, as part of our program protocols.
Steps we are taking to welcome you back:
Enhanced patient protection measures: All of our staff members have upgraded their protective gear. This includes appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all appointments. Between patients, we meticulously clean, disinfect rooms and all surfaces, as well as sterilize instruments.
A virtual waiting room: We have set up a virtual “waiting room” for our patients to check-in via text message and wait, if necessary, somewhere safe outside the clinic, such as in a car.
Tech-enabled screening: We digitally pre-screen patients in advance for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors to ensure our clinic stays COVID-free. We also screen our team members.
Air filtration (HEPA): In the coming days we will be investing in high-efficiency air filtration systems to ensure air quality is sanitary and for aerosol-producing procedures. This increases safety from germs and other pollutants.
Cashless payment: In hopes to reduce infectious spread we will no longer take cash or cheque as payment. Should you have any concerns please give us a call and we can make arrangements on a case by case basis.
