Dear Valued Patients,        Regarding COVID -closure

GREAT NEWS!

Dr David French’s office re-opened June 1st 2020 and is offering the full range of treatment including; cleanings, periodontal services and dental implant surgeries.

Our reception staff are calling patients regarding rescheduling of appointments that were cancelled during the COVID- closure.  

Thanks for your understanding during the closure. We really missed your smiles and are really happy to be back seeing you again.

The Alberta Dental Association & College and Alberta Health Services have provided updated guidance and regulations that allow a return to regular dental care.

We have implemented high level infection control protocols, and office modifications that allow us to to exceed ADA&C guidelines.

What are we doing that goes beyond the guidelines? 

  • staggering appointments and distance spacing in waiting room to ensure physical distance for patients.
  • closed in treatment rooms for aerosol control.
  • room air clearance systems with HEPA & UV air filtration so room air is estimated at 99% clear in 15 minutes.
  • P-100 respirators which exceed the N95 or Level 3 mask filtration levels in use thru the month of June
  • Full cover powered air units (max-air CAPR) for surgical operators which exceed both the P-100 and  N95 masks protection level.
  • room misting during room turnover with HOCl, a powerful oxidant that is 100x more effective than bleach but is safe enough to place directly on babies skin.
  • and more because we know you want a safe dental treatment environment .

 

Dr David French is still and always available for emergency dental care .

If you have a Dental Emergency please call 403 -247-8656 for directions to Dr French’s Mobile phone. Dr David French will  then contact you and will be able to manage your dental emergency.
