Muskoka Dental is a proud IQ-Air hospital grade air purification office
Social distancing and Dentistry in Muskoka during the COVID-19 Pandemic
We, at Muskoka Dental, are pleased to resume all routine dental care (fillings, cleanings, x-rays, root canals, extractions, crown and bridge work, implants and cosmetic dentistry) as of June 8th, 2020. Over the next few weeks, we will be reaching out to all our patients to gradually reschedule you for your routine dental and cleaning appointments. Please keep an eye out for our email, text or phone call. We also welcome all new patients to the practice.
We are taking several measures to ensure a safe environment for everyone in the clinic. These social and physical distancing measures are adopted through guidance from Public Health Ontario, Ministry of Health and the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario. The goal is to help minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission through extensive infection prevention and control measures. Some of these measures include:
COVID-19 pre-screening prior to dental appointment: All staff and patients will go through pre-screening prior to their visit to the clinic. We will do this via phone, email or a text message providing a secure link to the pre-screening questionnaire.
Arrival at clinic: All patients visiting the clinic will be required to wear a face mask in the clinic. We request patients to bring their own mask.
Individualized Appointments: To promote social distancing, we will try to stagger appointments as often as possible to keep the waiting room as empty as possible. All patients (with the exception of a parent accompanying minor) should visit unaccompanied.
Physical barriers: You will find, upon your visit, various upgrades in the form of physical barriers and fabric free surfaces to help reduce risk of transmission.
Medical grade air filtration: We have strategically placed hospital grade HEPA filter based IQ-Air air purifiers throughout the office and operatory areas to filter 99.95% of microscopic airborne particles.
State of the art Infection Prevention and Control protocols: We continue to meet or exceed the infection prevention guidelines set in place by the Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario. We have recently renovated our entire sterilization centre to ensure enhanced hospital grade sterilization workflow for all instruments.
We continue to provide the same excellence of care and are available for all your dental needs. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time and hope to see you all very soon in good dental and overall health!
