Nish Dental Clinic COVID-19 Update
Warm greetings to our wonderful patients,
We look forward to seeing you again. At this time we would like to thank you for your patience and understanding over these past few months. We are working diligently to reschedule all previously cancelled appointments. If you have not received a phone call yet, please give our office a call and we would be happy to accommodate you with the next available appointment time.
Following the direction from our Provincial Health Authority, the College of Dental Surgeons has instructed that we are now able to perform regular dental treatments and cleaning appointments as long as certain precautions are taken. We have included a detailed list below of what to expect when you enter our building for your next dental appointment.
The following precautionary measures will be in place during Phase 2 of our Province’s re-opening:
- 24 hours before your appointment one of our friendly receptionists will be calling with a pre-screening questionnaire for symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone who is at risk to the staff or other patients will be asked to reschedule their appointment for when they are symptom free. After hours exceptions may be made for emergency situations.
- We will be adjusting appointment times to ensure that there isn’t an overlap of patients in the waiting room.
- When you arrive at the office please use the hand sanitizer provided at the front desk. Your temperature will be taken with a non contact digital thermometer. You will be instructed to have a seat in the waiting room at least 6 feet apart from other patients or the receptionists will direct you into the back operatory right away where you will be greeted by your hygienist or dental assistant who will be wearing face shields and level 3 masks for their protection as well as yours.
- When you are in the operatory please know that our ventilation system will be fitted with high-level air filters to keep the air clean and safe.
- The waiting room, doors, handles, and counters will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes regularly throughout the day as well as before and after your appointment. The treatment staff will be following elevated sanitizing guidelines for all touchable surfaces as well.
- Once your dental visit has been completed you will be instructed to return to the waiting room. Please stand behind the new sneeze guards and barriers in place to protect our front receptionists.
- We do encourage hand sanitizer on your way out the door from your appointment as well. It has a moisturizer that does not dry out your hands.
We look forward to serving you and can assure you that your next dental visit will be safe and enjoyable.
