In addition to the sterilization and infection control procedures, you may notice a few changes at your visit.
- SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS ONLY: Your appointments will be scheduled to allow for social distancing between patients (that might mean that fewer appointment slots are available for scheduling your appointment).
- REDUCED WAITING TIME: We’re doing our best to reduce waiting times for you and reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.Moreover, books & magazines have been removed temporarily from our waiting rooms for infection control purposes.
- SCREENING FOR COVID: Our staff will ask you few questions when you are in the clinic and we will record your temperature and if necessary, peripheral oxygen saturation.
- SANITIZATION: We frequently and proactively clean and sanitize our waiting rooms, operatory area, door handles, etc.
- HAND SANITIZER will be available at reception as well as operatory area. Our staff and patient are encouraged to use it frequently!
- HEPA FILTER (H-14) As dental patient has to remove mask for dental procedure, the question arises about safety of dental procedures in this pandemic situation. In such cases, air purifiers are helpful equipment. According to a research study conducted at KITASATO INSTITUTE MEDICAL CENTRE, air purifier with the plasma cluster ion technology can filter and kill COVID aerosols. At DentaSculpt Dental Clinic & Implant Centre, we never compromise to prevent cross contamination and increasing patient safety. We use the world best air purifier (SHARP) to control COVID aerosols.
- Disinfection of operatory using UV (UltraViolet) C light and OZONE
