COVID-19 Protocols at Our Ottawa, ON Dental Clinic
Horizons Dental Care is committed to the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. Our Ottawa, ON dental clinic follows the COVID-19 protocols recommended by Health Canada and other leading agencies to keep our patients safe, healthy, and smiling at every checkup. Our dentists and the rest of our staff respond to a screening form and have their temperatures checked twice a day. Anyone feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms is asked to stay away until they are better, as this is a symptoms-free office. All patients are required to answer a COVID screening form prior to their appointment and as soon as they enter our office. Read on to learn more about the steps we have taken to ensure your safety as the pandemic continues to impact our day-to-day lives.
Mandatory Masks and Other Measures for Your Safety
Masks must be worn at all times throughout the office by both patients and staff. Our dental team wears washed scrubs every day, while our clinical team changes gowns between patients. All common surfaces, including doors in treatment rooms, are thoroughly cleaned at least twice a day to eliminate the possibility of surface contamination. To limit the total number of people in our office and reception area, we stagger appointment times throughout the day. Our entire staff follows a critical hand hygiene protocol, and we have plexiglass in our reception area to separate patients from staff while they are waiting to be seen. Every examination room and the waiting room is equipped with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) air filter to reduce the risk of airborne transmission of COVID-19 and other illnesses.
