I trust this update finds you well and I hope you are busy getting ready for the upcoming Holiday Season.
As you are all aware the Ontario Government escalated our region into lockdown for at least the next 28 days. Unlike the first lockdown however, dentistry has been deemed an essential service and dental offices will remain open.
In the past few months, we at Hyde Park Dentistry have endeavoured to provide dental services in an efficient and safe manner. The safety protocols that were put in place have been well received by all of you who have come to the office and we appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and support.
As an update, in addition to specific COVID screening and cleansing protocols, we now have air purifiers in each treatment room and the rooms have been enclosed to aid in containment and air exchange. Two of the rooms have permanent glass enclosures and doors, and two have plastic barriers while we wait for more glass to arrive. And of course, all the appropriate PPE is available at the office. It is hard to tell us apart with all our gear on but if you look for the one with the weird glasses and light attached to her head, you will find me!
In the days ahead we will continue to adjust and adapt to the ever-changing COVID crisis and strive to provide you with a setting where you can feel safe and comfortable. Please go to our website https://www.hydeparkdentistry.ca/newsletter/ to see our latest protocols. As always, please feel free to reach out by phone or email if you have any questions or concerns.
We will be at the office until December 23 and will take a break for the Holidays and return on January 4, 2021.
I hope you can celebrate the Holiday Season with your loved ones whether at home or on Zoom, and I wish all of you a New Year full of joy and new beginnings.
Here is to a COVID free 2021!
