To the patients of Woodfield Dental,
We hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to announce that our office is open for all dental treatments.
We have received direction and reviewed guidelines from the Ontario Dental Association(ODA), the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario(CDHO), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Public Health Ontario (PHO) to operate our practice at a lesser capacity with increased health and safety measures.
Universal precautions continue to be in place. We have added additional infection control protocols to enhance the safety for all patients and team members. Along with routine cleaning and disinfection, all high touch surfaces will be disinfected frequently. Our office may look a little different with changes made to ensure everyone’s safety and we have created a social distancing policy for the office to maintain a safe environment.
When we are confirming your appointment, you will be asked a series of screening questions. You will be asked these screening questions again upon entry into our office.
*Should you experience any symptoms of Covid-19 please contact the office to reschedule your appointment.*
When you arrive at the office on your appointment day, please wait in your car and call or text us at 519-679-2891 to let us know that you have arrived. You will be given further instructions at that time.
We require that patients and anyone accompanying patients into our office, wear a cloth or disposable mask and that you please use the hand sanitizer when entering and exiting the office.
We will limit the number of patients in the practice area at any given time and will be staggering appointments to minimize traffic in our reception and common areas.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) for all clinical and administrative staff, will be worn appropriate to the treatment provided.
A temperature and symptom check for all team members is completed daily.
For the foreseeable future dental & periodontal cleanings are limited to hand scaling without the use of cavitrons, suctions, air/water syringes and polishing.
As the situation continues to evolve, please be assured that we will constantly assess and adapt our processes to adhere to the latest updates and guidelines.
Please feel free to call us at any time to reschedule any appointments that have had to be postponed due to Covid-19.
Thank you so much for your understanding and patience. We look forward to seeing you soon!
The Woodfield Dental Team
