Covid- 19 | Important Health and Safety Measures  

 

Your Health and Safety Remains our #1 Priority

Our office has always had high levels of infection control.  We have always implemented proper cleaning/sanitizing protocols as required by our regulating body to avoid disease transmission.  It remains our top priority to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff.

 

Updates to the Office

We have implemented additional safety measures and acquired additional equipment, including:

  1. Installed physical barriers and acquired additional types of PPE for aerosol generating procedures (i.e. 3M N95 half face respirators, face shields, scrub caps, gowns).
  2. Our office is a masked environment.
  3. Modified our physical spaces in the clinic to support physical distancing in the reception area.
  4. Purchased multiple hospital grade air purification units (MERV18 HEPA filters).
  5. Following the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, we currently limiting the use of aerosol generating procedures during your hygiene appointment which includes ultrasonic scalers and rubber cup polishing.  

 

New Protocols at your Next Appointment

Your next dental appointment will also look different as we adapt to the “new normal”.  We have implemented precautionary measures to keep everyone safe, including:

  1. Patients are screened over the phone and in-person.   
  2. Prior to entering the office, patients are asked to wear a clean mask, hand sanitization is performed, and a contactless temperature check is administered.
  3. Appointments are now staggered and spaced to maintain physical distancing between patients.
  4. NO walk-ins are permitted at this time.  Please call the office to make an appointment.

We are all in this together and we appreciate your patience as we navigate through these unprecedented times.  As a courtesy to others, if you need to reschedule your appointment, please let us know with at least 24 hours notice.

 

We are looking forward to seeing your smiles soon.

 

Stay well,

Dr. Michael Li and Staff
