Any time away from our patients feels too long! We understand this time has been difficult for everyone. Your patience and understanding has been much appreciated! We are thrilled to announce that Quarry Park Dental is officially reopening for all patient appointments on June 1, 2020!
The Alberta Dental Association and College lifted the restrictions on dental practices due to COVID-19 on May 14, 2020. Previously, we were only able to schedule appointments for those who needed to be treated with urgent/emergency issues. Although we have been authorized to continue booking appointments as normal, your visit to our office may look a bit different. We have made a few changes to the way we operate to ensure a safe environment for all staff and patients coming in and out of our office.
What To Expect
We didn’t feel comfortable returning to work until all precautionary safety measures could be taken. Our staff has been working hard on sourcing crucial supplies to ensure your safety upon your next visit to Quarry Park Dental. Here’s what to expect when you come to your office for your next orthodontic appointment:
All patients will undergo a pre-screening prior to booking an appointment and another one once they arrive at our office. The COVID-19 pre-screening is to determine if you classify as a vulnerable patient. The in-office screening will be to check your temperature. Those who are showing signs of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment. If you or someone you live with has been sick within the last 14 days, please rebook your appointment for a later date.
We have made sure that our office is well equipped with hand sanitizer. You’ll notice many hand sanitizing stations throughout the office and encourage you to use them as many times as you feel necessary. At a minimum, we ask everyone to use hand sanitizer when entering and leaving our office.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
All staff at Quarry Park Dental will be required to wear PPE over their regular uniforms. This includes face masks, gloves and eye protection. We ask that everyone visiting our practice wear a face mask and any other PPE you feel comfortable wearing. If you don’t have a face mask, we are happy to give you one!
Social distancing rules are in place and we ask that everyone stay 6 feet (2 metres) apart from one another. This includes all staff, patients and anyone else you may encounter during your appointment.
Booking Your Next Appointment
We know things are different, but we can’t wait to see you back in our office! We hope to make this transition to a new normal an easy one for everyone in our community.
