UNITE HERE WELLNESS AND DENTAL CENTRE
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us and for the Dental Centre with the shutting down of dental services in the province of Ontario. We understand that many of you have been forced to wait for your dental care.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience during this time, as we all tried to do our part to control the spread of this pandemic.
We are happy to announce that we are planning to reopen the Dental Centres for patient treatment on July 6, 2020. Our new hours of operation will be 9:00am to 5:00pm.
We have cancelled all future appointments that had been booked in all Dental Centres. On July 6, 2020 we will begin by seeing and treating emergency and urgent cases only. We will triage and prioritize cases based on severity.
We are limited in our ability to treat patients as we used to, by the need to maintain social distancing, availability of personal protective equipment or PPE, etc. Each week we will evaluate the pandemic situation and with the guidance of the Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario gradually expand our services to include more elective treatment, including hygiene services.
Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority. We have carefully prepared and updated our practice procedures. We are also training our dental team to do all that we can to minimize the risk of COVID-19 to everyone in our community. Please be assured that we will be taking care of you, just as well as we will be taking care of our own families.
Infection control has always been a top priority for the Dental Centre. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe during these challenging times.
You will see many changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff members:
