During these trying times of the CoVid-19 crisis we would like to reassure our friends, families and patients that we are here for you!
Hello to our wonderful patients!
There have been some recent changes over the past week to dental care in the province of BC, and we have now been given the green light to provide limited increased services. To protect our vulnerable patients the government has mandated that we are not permitted to provide non-emergency treatment to patients over the age of 70, or who have chronic health conditions (for example; diabetes, heart conditions, kidney, lung, immunocompromised patients, organ transplant recipients, etc...).
At this point in time, we are permitted to provide emergent and urgent care (for example, fix cavities and lost fillings as well as dental cleanings even in the absence of pain) for eligible patients, at this point in time we are deferring cleanings for children under the age of 16.
Many of you have contacted us over the past months since the government mandated shutdown in response to CoVid-19. We thank you for your patience. You can expect a phone call from us in the next little while to arrange to have your concerns addressed.
You will notice a few changes to how things are done at the office. This is all geared to create the safest possible conditions for our most vulnerable patients. You will note the front door is locked and there is a sign requesting that you phone us to let us know you have arrived. You will be asked some simple health screening questions, you will be provided with a mask and hand sanitizer, and your temperature will be taken prior to entering the treatment room.
Our staff may look a little stranger than usual. Depending on which procedure you are here for we may be wearing full enhanced PPE or just an n95 mask with glasses and face shield.
Our hygienists are currently limited by their governing body to minimal use of electric scalers and are forbidden from using rubber cup polish. If your personal situation requires the use of ultrasonic cleaners, the hygienist may request that you assist by holding a suction tip to reduce aerosol production. Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
We are doing our best to keep physical distancing practices in place. We are also using hospital grade air purifiers. All of this may mean we could fall behind schedule. Please know we are doing our best and appreciate your patience.
Your safety and the safety of all of Cranbrook is our number one priority. We have planned to exceed all enhanced protective measures required by the BC College of Dental Surgeons. We have implemented strict office policies which allow for social distancing (limited number of patients in the office at a time), reduced exposure to aerosols, and best practices.
We are not charging extra for the enhanced measures we have implemented to keep you and all of our staff safe.
Anyone requiring emergent care with pain and/or infection, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please leave a message on the clinic voicemail or contact one of the three dentists of Baker Hill Dental.
