What Are We Doing To Make Our Clinic Safer For You?

Our practice has deployed strict infection control protocols to ensure that your visit is as safe and hygienic as possible. These include:

  • Asking all patients a series of screening questions prior to booking an appointment.
  • Prominent signage at the clinic entrance denying access to those afflicted with any of the known COVID-19 signs and symptoms.
  • The use of hospital grade disinfectant on all equipment after every use
  • The availability of hand sanitiser upon entry to the clinic, and at various points throughout the clinic.
  • Spraying of disinfectant throughout the clinic on on every surface after each patient. 
  • Rigorous clinician hand hygiene protocols between patients.
  • Social distancing in the waiting room and clinic rooms where possible.
  • All benches , dental chair armrests, and surfaces that the patient comes in contact with are wiped before and after each appointment.
  • All staff use strict PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) protocols in line with Level 2 Operations for our Patients.

 

Screening Procedure for Appointments

Upon phoning the clinic, all clients will be asked a series of questions prior to booking an appointment. These will be:

  • Have you, or anyone you have been in direct contact with, returned from overseas travel within the last 14 days?
  • Are you feeling healthy and well, with no symptoms of:
    • Fever
    • Sore throat
    • Cough
    • Runny Nose
    • Nasal congestion
    • Shortness of breath
    • We will offer a laser temperature test in the event you are not confident with the above symptoms.

 

Social Distancing Procotols Within The Clinic

We have currently removed all but two chairs in the waiting room, and no standing in the waiting room is permitted if these chairs are occupied. Patients will be asked to wait outside or in their car until their allotted appointment time if the waiting room is at capacity (2 people).

In addition, we will continue to practise wherever possible the 1.5 metre distance rule between each of us.

 

Be vigilant, stay healthy and stay positive. We’ll beat this.
