After the outbreak of COVID-19, sanitization has become a big part of our lives. Washing our hands and face regularly with antiseptics has become a norm.
At Gadkari’s Dental Clinic, we have been maintaining sterilization standards since day 1. We are meticulous in cleaning our operating area after each patient is treated. With a Class B autoclave, all our instruments are sterilized at the most optimum level.
The class B autoclave is the latest machine that provides maximum safety against all potential causes of infection.
We have added the following protocols in order to provide a safe working environment:
1) We will be pre-screening all patients with a questionnaire to fill out prior to their appointment and again at the entrance to the office.
2) We will be taking temperature checks for patients upon entry into the clinic.
3) We require that patients wear a face mask when entering our office and after the appointment when you are done with your treatment.
4) We ask that you please use the hand sanitizer when entering and before leaving the office.
5) Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all clinical and administrative staff, including masks for all team members. face shields and gowns for the clinical team as required.
6) Cleaning and disinfecting of the reception area as needed.
7) Daily temperature and symptoms check of all staff members.
8) Extra time scheduled between patients’ appointments to allow thorough cleaning and disinfection of treatment rooms.
10) You will be asked to rinse with an antiseptic solution before we begin working.
11) Please note, we prefer only online, credit, and debit payments until further notice to avoid handling cash.
12) All instruments are thoroughly washed and disinfected first after they are used and then packed in separately sealed pouches to prevent cross-contamination.
If you have an upcoming appointment and are experiencing a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, we request that for everyone’s safety, you contact our team to reschedule your appointment.
As the situation continues to evolve, please be assured that we will be constantly assessing and adapting our processes to adhere to the latest updates and health guidelines.
As we continue to monitor the above protocols to ensure effectiveness, we will keep you updated with any changes. If any of these protocols change and we need to reschedule your dental care at any other time, our staff will contact you directly.
Please monitor your correspondence closely on the day of the appointment. In the meantime, if you have an urgent need to visit us, please contact us directly on the mentioned phone number. Our goal is to provide you with dental treatment in a safe and comfortable environment. We hope to see you at your half-yearly visits.
COVID 19 Vaccine
A COVID‑19 vaccine is a vaccine intended to provide acquired immunity against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2), the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19).
Prior to the COVID‑19 pandemic, an established body of knowledge existed about the structure and function of coronaviruses causing diseases like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
This knowledge accelerated the development of various vaccine platforms during early 2020. The initial focus of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines was on preventing symptomatic, often severe illness. Many countries have implemented phased distribution plans that prioritize those at the highest risk of complications, such as the elderly, and those at high risk of exposure and transmission, such as healthcare workers.
Single-dose interim use is under consideration to extend vaccination to as many people as possible until vaccine availability improves. Our staff is completely vaccinated and for any information on our protocols or anything related to COVID-19, feel free to contact us.
