Our community has been through a lot over the last few weeks 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.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are in place so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by our Dental Association, CDC & OSHA.
We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to their recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
- We will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
- You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines & so forth as those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment to manage risk.
We will do our best to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time and allow more time between patients to reduce traffic. We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 0828528048 or 0214245350 or whatsapp us at 0828528048 or visit our website at www.nitusdentist.co.za.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming our patients, neighbours and friends
