Your safety is our top priority
This is a challenging time around the world and here at home in Canada. Knowing that you might have concerns, especially about your dental visit, I want to reinforce that your health and safety as well as those of our employees are at the heart of everything we do at Dentistry by the Bay. As we continue to learn more about the risks of COVID-19 (also known as the Coronavirus), we remain committed to ensuring your dental experience, from start to finish, is safe and comfortable.
Currently, COVID-19 poses a low risk to Canadians, however, we’re working closely with public health agencies and the government to implement additional prevention measures as the situation evolves. We appreciate your understanding that, although we’re doing everything we can to maintain a safe and comfortable environment, your experience during this time may be a little different than what you’ve come to expect.
Although our daily cleanliness and hygiene practices already meet Health Canada’s standards of routine practices of infection control, we’ve taken steps to help ensure both you and our employees are protected from the risk of infection and communicable diseases. As usual you will be asked to wear a mask if you present with a cough.
• We’ve increased our environmental cleaning practices
• We’re installed additional antiviral products, such as hand sanitizer, throughout the office.
• Our employees have been trained in preventive and reactive measures as recommended by Health Canada.
• Our dedicated Team has been proactively meeting to monitor the level of risk associated with COVID-19 and ensure the procedures we’re implementing are appropriate and communicated to our employees and patients.
The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, and we’ll continue to respond to the latest developments, while keeping you informed. I invite you to visit our website that we will be updating on a regular basis.
Please remember that the most effective way to prevent the spread of disease are things you do yourself.
• Wash your hands often.
• When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
• If you have flu-like symptoms, inform the people around you, and postpone your travel plans. If your symptoms aren’t mild, seek medical care.
Thank you for your understanding. On behalf of all of us at Dentistry by the Bay, let me again say how committed we are to ensure the safety of our patients.
