We will begin to see patients in the order that they were cancelled from Monday May 18th, 2020. Due to social distancing requirements we shall obviously see patients at a much lesser volume.
For everyone's health and wellbeing, we are implementing an all-encompassing back-to-work protocol for safe practice.
We hope this finds you and your family healthy and well. We’re writing to share an update on the happenings at Ratoath Orthodontics during this shared experience of self quarantine and social distancing. Since the COVID-19 situation is very dynamic, we are remaining positive and monitoring government guidance as it is updated in response to the ever evolving situation. We’re talking to many people, exploring and filtering online resources and monitoring ongoing preliminary recommendations by our specialty organizations.
Our current focus: the development of an all-encompassing back-to-work protocol that combines safe practice with procedure flow. We will begin to see patients in the order that they were cancelled from May 18th 2020, due to social distancing requirements we shall obviously see patients at a much lesser volume. In preparation for our re-opening substantial efforts are being put forth by our Ratoath Orthodontic team to incorporate the most up-to-date information to amplify our existing stringent infection control processes. Things will be different! When we re-open you can be confident that they’ll be safer than ever and we’ll be more than prepared!
Now we’re open… virtually. Drs. Erfan and Tony are reviewing patient-submitted photos daily and providing treatment recommendations and answers to patient questions remotely in our virtual platform and will continue to do so into the future. It’s been inspiring to see our patients and their families hit the ground running with this new experience. Many thanks to those who have been in touch with us and shared updates. If you have any questions about your treatment please visit our websites and use our Virtual Remote Consultation platform to get in touch and easily upload some pictures.
Since the health and safety of our patients, staff, and the community is our top priority, we have added layers and layers of protection in our offices. We have modified our patient flow to strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines and have changed treatment procedures to reduce the generation of aerosols. Wellness screens, and social distancing guides are the new normal at Ratoath Orthodontics
