Your Safety Is Our Top Priority
According to recent directives from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, dentists are allowed to provide non-essential and elective care in addition to essential services and emergency care.
We are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and follow all guidelines and recommendations put forward by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.
The team at Van Mills Dental takes great pride in our rigid sterilization and infection control protocols, and we’re happy to comply with all government requirements.
While your appointment might look a little different right now and incorporate some extra safety measures, you can be assured you’re still getting the same quality dental care we’ve always provided.
We Will Happily Rebook You
Please do not come to your appointment if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. We ask that all patients with upcoming appointments take the province’s self-assessment test by clicking on this link.
If you have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, we are happy to rebook your appointment for another time. Please call our office, and we will reschedule.
Our Sterilization Process
All instruments are housed in cassettes, which eliminates the risk of any contamination or injury to our staff as they are moved around the office.
We sterilize our instruments in hospital-grade autoclaves using several cycles of very hot steam. After they are removed from the autoclave, we wrap the cassettes with special autoclave paper to ensure that they remain completely sterile until we need them.
All sterilizers are monitored at every cycle for key mechanical, chemical, and biological indicators. We’re looking to make sure that the proper temperature and time conditions are met every time we use the equipment. We also keep digital records of this information for easy verification should that be necessary.
Rather than just tap water, we go a step further and use filtered and distilled water in all of our equipment units as another way of eliminating contaminants.
All surfaces are cleaned after every patient with a hospital-grade tuberculocidal disinfectant, and personal and surface barriers are used throughout the office to ensure proper infection control.
You Can Be Confident in Our Cleanliness
The COVID-19 pandemic is serious, and we understand that some patients may be feeling anxious about booking an appointment. We will do our best to reassure you that our offices take patient and staff safety to heart.
Should you have any questions about current COVID-19 regulations or our sterilization protocols, please do not hesitate to contact us. Book with confidence today.
