Dear Valued Patients,
Our team at Third Street Dental would like to give you an update on our office. As many of you know, our province has begun to initiate Phase 2 of the Covid-19 Response Plan. The College of Dental Surgeons of BC has worked with the BC Centre for Disease Control, the office of the Provincial Health Officer, and WorkSafe BC to form our profession’s guidelines for Phase 2.
Over the last two weeks, our office has been able to open more and more appointments to include fillings, and dental hygiene. Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our team has been working at enhancing our systems based on the current recommendations from our college, and BC Centre for Disease Control. When it is time for your next appointment, we will provide you with a list of “What to expect at your visit”, which will include Pre-Screening Questions, hand washing and social distancing. Our team is wearing more protective equipment, and taking additional measures to keep both patients and our team safe. Our office will have updated policies and education for our staff as well.
Thank you for your patience. We value your trust and loyalty, and look forward to welcoming you back to our office.
Dr. Melissa Skinner and Team
