Fall 2021 COVID UPDATE
As you know, there are new regulations that came into effect this week in Alberta—and you’re likely wondering how those regulations will affect your next visit to Woodside Denture Centre.
Because we are regulated health professionals, we do not fall under the vaccine restrictions exemption program. This means you will not be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result in order to visit Woodside Denture Centre. However, your health and safety are always our No. 1 priority. We will, of course, still be following Alberta Health Services guidelines in order to keep both our patients and staff safe.
Here’s what you can expect at your next clinic visit:
✓ All visits are by appointment only.
✓ Face coverings are to be worn at all times in the clinic.
✓ As per Alberta Public Health restrictions, we will be operating at 33% capacity.
✓ All patients will be asked to sanitize their hands upon arrival.
✓ All patients will be COVID-risk screened prior to entering the clinic (both vaccinated and unvaccinated).
✓ All patients must maintain a physical distance of two metres from any other person who is not a member of the patient’s cohort while in our clinic.
✓ Staff will be screened daily and must wear appropriate protective gear.
✓ All touch points and treatment rooms are sanitized between each patient.
✓ We will be following a controlled door policy. This means limiting walk-in patients and asking scheduled patients not to bring friends, family or children (except if required for assistance).
We look forward to continuing to treat all your denture concerns at Woodside. Please visit us online to book your appointment or free consultation.
