Our Protocols For Our Office To Stay Safe From COVID-19
Pre-Covid we already had high standards of sterilizing & disinfecting using Universal Precautions which follows our governing body, the RCDSO, and Public Health guidelines.
Additional pre-cautions & protocols were created and is practised because of the new Covid-19 virus:

We have a 3 level screening protocol for patients & our team before they come into the office.
Screening includes taking & recording their body temperatures.
clinical disinfecting and sterilizing follows Public Health & RCDSO universal precaution guidelines
non-clinical area/surfaces that are frequently touched are disinfected regularly throughout the day, this includes counters, doorhandles, the point of sale machine
we have taken away magazines, coffee station, pamphlets etc to decrease possibility of cross-contamination
the office is also disinfected & cleaned professionally after hours
we continue to use hospital grade disinfectant solutions
Mask & Personal Disinfecting
our team, patients and anyone else coming into the office are asked to wear masks.
they are also asked to disinfect their hands.
our team wears the full recommended PPE (personal protective equipment) when treating patients and change their PPE after each patient.
