COVID-19 Pandemic Response

Our COVID-19 Protocols
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have gone to great lengths to create a safe and healthy environment for both our patients and our team. Our enhanced protocols, as detailed in our June 2020 letter to patients, are in place for your added protection.
The improvement of air quality and management of bioaerosols generated during dental treatment have been central issues in safely providing care during this pandemic. Our aerosol management protocols and equipment go above and beyond the most current RCDSO guidelines for dental offices. The fully enclosed and separated design of all of our operatories helps to contain aerosols and substantially enhances the safety of patient care. In addition, we have installed the Surgically Clean Air system, a medical-grade air purification/sterilization technology in all areas of the office, including self-contained units in each individual treatment operatory.
The extra measures we have taken, in addition to our already rigorous infection control procedures, create a safe environment to allow us to provide the standard of care to which our patients have become accustomed.
We are continuing our masking policy for everyone coming into the clinic. This policy has been in place throughout the pandemic and continues to provide an important layer of protection for our patients, their families, and our staff. We continue to review and adjust our guildelines based on recommendations from the RCDSO and Ontario Public Health. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Our primary purpose is to provide comprehensive, patient-centred dental care with integrity and compassion in a safe and comfortable environment. We are a family-oriented practice and treat people of all ages. Our dental team has been chosen for their genuine caring personalities, excellent skills, and gentle touch. We will make every effort to go above and beyond your expectations and we thank you for your trust.
