Woodbridge Smile Centre is happy to announce that based on the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) we are officially back for normal operations, including hygiene services and elective works.
Here is an update of what we have done in our office family to protect you and your family:
Our team takes COVID-19 very seriously and have made all the necessary changes in the office to follow the new guidelines given by Public health and the RCDSO. All patients are screened over the phone prior to booking appointments.
All Staff and Patients
Temperatures are taken and recorded upon entry to the office each day. Air purifiers have been added to each room to clean the air in the room, which ultimately captures 99.97% of airborne droplets particles. Our front desks have been equipped with barriers and all entrances to each room will be sealed during treatment. Extra time is now scheduled after each patient to properly sanitize to the RCDSO and Public health standards.
Please feel free to call us regarding any questions you may have before booking appointment. Please call from the parking lot upon arrival to the office, reception will tell you once it is safe to enter.
We will be limiting the number of patients in the reception area. If you are a caregiver or guardian, you are welcome to enter with the patient and be prepared to take your temperature and asked to answer screening questions regarding COVID-19.
The waiting room will not be open for everyone. Chairs will be spaced two metres apart. There will be no magazines, toys, or any other non-essential items in the dental office, as these are all difficult to disinfect.
Patients must wash their hands with soap and water or use sanitizers when they enter and leave the office. You will be asked to wear a mask or face covering while in the office except when you are being treated.
Personal Protective Equipment:
Dental staff will be wearing more protective gear than normal. This includes masks, face shields, and gowns. Your dentist must ensure that they have the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) before they schedule an in-person appointment.
Below we have added some great informative links for you to review:
How do I know if I have COVID-19?
The Ministry of Health has an online self-assessment tool to help you determine if you need to seek care.
If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911 immediately. Advise them of your symptoms and travel history.
