Manitoba is opening up. Although the province is loosening COVID-19 restrictions, health care settings, including dental practices require mask-wearing among staff and visitors. We also continue our strict safety guidelines, as part of our (safedent) protocols. We want to assure you that dentistry continues to be an essential service and we remain open and here for you. We continue our strict safety guidelines, as part of our safedent protocols, so your next visit is safe and comfortable
Our safedent program protocols for welcoming you back:
Enhanced patient protection measures:
All of our staff 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 via email message 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): In the coming days we will be investing in high efficiency air filtration systems to ensure air quality is sanitary and for aerosol producing procedures. This increases safety from germs and other pollutants.
In hopes to reduce infectious spread we will no longer take cash or cheque as payment.
