Our Welcome Back Protocols
As Nova Scotia dental practices start to reopen, we are excited to welcome you back! We are putting safety protocols in place as part of our safedent program, so your next visit is safe and comfortable.
Our safedent program protocols for welcoming you back:
Enhanced patient protection measures: All of our team 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 on arrival via text message or phone and wait, if necessary, somewhere safe outside the clinic, such as in a car.
Tech-enabled screening: We 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): We have already invested in high efficiency air filtration systems to ensure air quality is sanitary and for aerosol producing procedures and now we've added additional units in patient waiting areas. This increases safety from germs and other pollutants.
