Our Response to Covid-19

We want you to know that we are open and observing Covid-19 Safety Protocols.

Patient health and safety is our #1 priority, and we use personal protective equipment for all our staff to serve you in a safe and healthy environment.

We have implemented enhanced infection control protocols above and beyond the stringent policies we already have in place, created new patient flows to adhere to physical distancing guidelines. and procured the necessary protective equipment to keep all of our patients and staff safe.

Before your next visit, we wanted to highlight to you some of the changes we have made to further protect your health. Here is the list of new safety protocols we have put in place:


Patient Screening

The day before your appointment, we will call you to perform a ‘Pre-Appointment Screening’, for the purpose of determining if you have any COVID-19 symptoms before arriving at our office.


Patient Protection Station

At the front entrance, we’ve added a ‘Patient Protection Station’, which includes hand sanitizer and face masks for your use. After each appointment, we will clean, disinfect and sterilize the operatory, instruments and all surfaces.


Interaction Limits

We will ask you to wait in your vehicles or outside the office until we text or call you for your appointment. At our reception desks, we’ve installed plexiglass barriers and placed ‘ Stand Here’ markers on the ground away from the desk to encourage physical distancing.


Physical Distancing

In our waiting room, we’ll leave the minimum number of chairs for seating and ensure they are placed 2 metres (6 feet) apart. Our staff members will wipe down all surfaces with an approved surface cleaner as well.


Staff Monitoring

In addition to these new protocols, our staff will continuously self-monitor for any symptoms (fever with either cough or sore throat, or muscle aches) they may experience and will quarantine for the mandatory 14 days in the event they are ill.


If you have missed or had to cancel your dental appointment or had to delay any treatment plans due to COVID-19, now is a good time to book your next appointment.

If you have an urgent need please reach out to us via phone. Please note that our hours may fluctuate as we adapt our schedule for the new safety protocols and patient demand.

Our goal is to provide you with the dental care you need in a safe and comfortable environment. We hope to see you soon!
