Cov-19 And Your Next Appointment.
As we continue to face uncertainty as a community due to COVID-19 and the social distancing guidelines passed down from the Federal, Provincial and local leadership, our team at Metcalfe Street Dental has realized the importance of strong and ongoing relationships.
We want you to know that we are here for you!
When we think about the individuals that bring us joy in fulfilling our vision for health, and well being we immediately think of you, our patients and friends. We miss you greatly and are continuing to find ways to connect with you regularly and being available for you in any way possible as we get ready to opening the practice beyond emergency appointments.
The original goal of the reduction to emergency care was to suppress the spread of the virus and reduce the use of protective masks, surgical gowns, and other personal protective equipment (PPE) that hospitals found in short supply. This also gave us the opportunity to reinforce what we have always done when it comes to sterilization and infection control, as well as implement additional steps to make sure that every patient can be assured a safe dental experience.
We are excited to announce that our practice will be re-opening on June 8th, 2020, for a wider spectrum of dental care. We have been working diligently to replenish our supplies that we donated, so that we are ready with a new schedule in place that ensures the safety and comfort for both team and patients, as we return to full service and care. Our team is now reaching out to patients who have had to cancel their appointments due to the shut down as well as patients who are currently scheduled in the upcoming months to confirm new appointments that promote social distancing mandates and protect our most vulnerable. Our new scheduling options are designed to address individual oral heathcare needs and maintain a safe and sterile environment.
We also know that these unprecedented times obstacles like additional time off from work and financial concerns can be barriers to ideal care. We have also taken this time to evaluate our patient finance options and same day dentistry solutions with the intention of making sure dentistry remains affordable with minimal time expended for all those in need.
Rest assured, that Metcalfe Street Dental, as always, will place the health and well-being of our team and patients first. We will continue to reach out and update you on a regular basis through various forms of contact.
