High level precaution to ensure a comfortable experience
Dentists take the utmost precautionary measures to ensure that patient visits are extremely safe. Here are some of the steps we take to ensure that all our patients are comfortable. We make sure that all our patients receive the best possible treatment.
Enhanced use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
In our regular practice, orthodontists and clinical staff use gloves, surgical masks and gowns. Due to the pandemic, we use comprehensive personal protective equipment to ensure maximum safety.
New cleaning and sterilisation procedures
As usual, we have the cleaning and sterilisation of instruments and other supplies, which are routinely performed in dental offices. During the pandemic, we have also considered other critical routine cleaning protocols. These protocols are with respect to waiting room furniture, washrooms, floors and other surfaces.
Redistribution of spaces
Orthodontic clinics often have several chairs relatively close together in open spaces sharing common facilities. In order to achieve an appropriate physical distance, we have ensured that the distance is respected. We have ensured adequate personal space is provided for each patient.
We use our Internet communication, remote monitoring and virtual assistance to manage ongoing and urgent patient care when necessary.
We also encourage the use of devices and supplies that require fewer changes and activations. We avoid devices that may result in unplanned appointments due to damage, debonding and injuries.
