DON'T WAIT! to see the dentist. Just a reminder that even during "LOCKDOWN" we ARE OPEN! Dental offices are considered essential services. So even though our area have been declared "grey" and in "lockdown" by public health advisors for at least 28 days, Dentists are among health care providers that CAN STAY OPEN using the current protocols; in effect mandated by the governing body of our profession. So IT IS SAFE to go to the dentist as I stated in several previous posts. We will NOT BE CANCELLING procedures and we ARE ABLE to perform all procedures until otherwise instructed. The most important tool we have to fight COVID is patient screening. We DO NOT treat COVID positive patients in our office or patients who are suspect of coming into contact with COVID. We were safe before COVID and continue to be even safer during the ongoing pandemic. If you are waiting "until this is over", you're going to be waiting years. Please DO NOT neglect your teeth. Feel free to call Amherstburg Dental if you need our help at 519 736-4073.
We have always used the best PPE protocol and infection control techniques in our dental office as mandated by our profession even before this pandemic. Since we returned to practice in June, we have used a heightened protocol for the safety of our staff, our office, and our patients. However, the most important tool we have to fight COVID is patient screening. We DO NOT treat COVID positive patients in our office or patients who are suspect of coming into contact with COVID.
Patients are screened twice by our staff before they are allowed to enter our building, screened again by our staff upon arrival and screened again by their attending dentist before they even enter any treatment area. We screen our staff and dentists twice daily and monitor our health throughout the day. It is SAFE to go to the dentist. Please DO NOT neglect your oral health. We are continuing to provide ALL dental care including regular exams and cleanings. Call Amherstburg Dental at 519 736-4073 to schedule your appointment today.
