Have you been skipping your visits to your family dentist in Whitby because of Covid? When dental office reopened part-way through the Covid-19 pandemic, many patients decided to postpone their regular check-ups and cleanings in an attempt to stay safe and prevent virus spread.
Since that time, dental offices have learned a lot, and made significant changes and investments in staff, equipment and infrastructure to ensure that they could treat patients safely, providing the dental care they needed in a clean, controlled environment.
Here are some of the things that the experts at Downtown Whitby Dentistry have done to keep you and your family safe while you visit:
We have installed glass doors to divide treatment areas, which will help contain any aerosols and ensure that all patients are well-distanced from one another.
Our office has purchased state-of-the-art Airpura UV air purifiers that contain airborne and aerosolized viruses, bacteria, mold, chemicals etc. forcing them to pass through the patented UV filter, killing these infectants and destroying the DNA of microorganisms.
Extraoral aerosol evacuator system
This is a chairside filtration system that passes aerosols though a three-stage hepa filter and a UVC disinfection to neutralize any threat.
Personal protective equipment (PPE)
Our team is equipped with the best PPE that money can buy. All of our staff are screened daily and provided with masks, shields, gowns and gloves to ensure that you’re safe throughout your treatment.
Regular dental check-ups are an important part of your general health and wellbeing. They can spot small problems before they become big problems – your dentist can find small cracks before they grow, detect oral cancers while they are still easily treatable, alert you to the early signs of gum disease and gingivitis, and clean off those coffee and wine stains that develop has part of your everyday life.
Your dentist in Whitby has made significant investments and taken every precaution to keep you safe and ensure that you’re still able to get the dental care you need, so don’t put that dental check-up off any longer!
