COVID-19 Update: What to Expect When Cambrian Dental Centre Reopens
Dentists Are Coming Back, But It's Not Business as Usual
On Tuesday, May 26, the Ministry of Health lifted restrictions to allow for the gradual restart of some health-care services. This includes being able to see the dentist again.
While this is good news, it doesn’t mean your dentist is back to business as usual.
There is still a pandemic happening – that’s why dentists are taking extra precautions to ensure the protection of their patients, staff and themselves. Your next appointment will be a little different than what you’re used to.
Offices Must Meet Safety Requirements
For a dental office to reopen, it must meet all updated safety guidelines. These guidelines are still being finalized by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) and are there to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the office and the community.
Keeping this in mind, dental offices will reopen in stages. For many dental offices this could take some time, so please be patient. Dentists are just as excited to see you as you are to see them and are doing their best to get back to caring for you as soon as possible.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will it be safe to visit my dentist when their office reopens?
Yes. Cambrian Dental Centre has always followed very strict infection prevention and control procedures. With these added COVID-19 guidelines, Cambrian Dental Centre can begin preparing to provide you with the safest care possible. Cambrian Dental Centre will open our office only when we can meet these safety requirements. Our priority is to protect you, other patients and our staff.
What will be different?
Here are some of the changes you can expect at your dentist’s office:
Appointments will be spaced out to allow physical distancing between patients. It will also allow time for their office to be disinfected between each appointment. That might mean less flexibility for scheduling your appointments.
The day before your appointment your dentist or their staff will ask you questions to see if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. Your temperature will likely be taken with a touchless thermometer.
You will be asked to wear a mask or face covering while in the office except when you are being treated.
Dental staff will be wearing more protective gear than normal. This includes masks, face shields, and gowns. Your dentist must ensure that they have the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) before they schedule an in-person appointment.
You may be asked to limit the number of people you bring to the appointment with you. There are exceptions for small children and people who require assistance. If a parent or caregiver is allowed, they will also be subject to all screening measures.
The waiting room will not be open for everyone. Chairs will be spaced two metres apart. There will be no magazines, toys, or any other non-essential items in the dental office, as these are all difficult to disinfect.
Patients must wash their hands with a 70 to 90 per cent alcohol-based solution, or soap and water, when they enter and leave the dentist's office.
Plan to pay by touchless payment, such as credit card or Interac.
