April 8, 2021 Update: Our Calgary Dentist Continues to Provide All Dental Services in NW Calgary (Kensington/Hillhurst/Sunnyside)
As Alberta once again moves to increased COVID-19 restrictions, we wish to advise our patients that we continue to be open as usual to serve our dental patients and provide all dentistry services, including dental hygiene cleanings, dental check-ups, and all other general dentistry services by our Calgary dentist, Dr. Dirk Thompson.
As always, the health and well-being of our patients, team members and community remain our priority. Our goal is to continue to provide you with exceptional dental care in a warm and caring environment, while at the same time strictly following all COVID-19 enhanced infection protection and prevention protocols established by the ADA&C and Alberta Health Services, including the following:
• Ensuring social distancing protocols are adhered to at our dental office, with some necessary exceptions.
• Placing a physical barrier at our dental reception desk.
• Requiring patients to wear a mask and perform hand hygiene before entering and leaving our dental office.
• Wearing enhanced personal protective equipment.
• Screening for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors of all patients, team members and visitors to our dental office.
• No-contact temperature taking for all patients and dental team members.
• Cleaning the reception area with appropriate disinfectants frequently and after every patient.
• Minimizing the number of patients in the reception area by spacing out dental appointment and check-out times.
• On request, setting aside special appointment times for high-risk patients.
We have also taken the extra precautionary measure of placing portable HEPA filtration units in every dental operatory. For more information regarding the COVID-19 specific procedures instituted at our Calgary dentist office, we invite you to review our dedicated COVID-19 web page which is accessible at the top of our main page.
We thank you for your continued patience as we all continue to navigate these challenging times together.
We look forward to seeing you. Take care and stay well.
Dr. Dirk A. Thompson &
the Advance Your Health Dental Team
