To meet these goals in a post-COVID-19 world, we are following the latest public health guidelines as well as those released from Vancouver Coastal Health, BCCDC, and WorkSafe BC. A few of the highlights are listed below.
Other measures we’ve adopted include new equipment to reduce the need for aerosols. Plexiglas is up at the checkout, and social distance markers are set-up around the office. As before, full sterilization protocols are implemented between every patient. Our staff members will also be sporting the very latest PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) including scrubs, clinic shoes, masks, gloves, gowns (for dental cleanings), surgical caps, safety glasses, and a protective face shield.
As the brilliant Dr. Bonnie Henry says, “be calm, be kind, be safe.” Thank you for being patient as we adjust to the new COVID-19 era protocols. We look forward to seeing you again and making Vancouver smiles a little whiter and brighter.
