Following the revised measures from the Ministry of Health beginning on Monday, 13 February to exit the acute phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have updated this page and will be implementing these rules in accordance to the guidelines.
PLEASE NOTE THAT MASKS ARE STILL MANDATORY INSIDE THE CLINIC
Everything you need to know about the safety restrictions and how they impact the dental care you can receive
For those who have arrived in Singapore from another country within the last 7 days
In addition to standard infection control protocols, further safety measures have been put in place
To ensure that we can provide a safe clinical environment for our medically vulnerable patients, we ask that everyone observe the following:
Patients with Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) symptoms such as coughing, running or blocked nose, should defer their appointments until they are well.
Patients will be asked to defer their appointment until their Day 7 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) is returned with a negative result.
Patients will be asked to take an ART on the day of your appointment and send proof of a negative result before coming to the clinic.
Due to the medical nature of our services and the requirement for patients to remove their masks while indoors to receive treatment, we ask that patients take an ART on the day of your appointment and send proof of a negative result before coming to the clinic as an extra precaution.
As part of the government's push to immunise healthcare and frontline workers in our fight against COVID-19, all of our staff at Dental Forté are fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine to help provide a safer clinical environment for our patients.
Safe-distancing is no longer required, but we do highly encourage patients to avoid bringing excessive accompanying visitors to avoid crowding in the waiting and treatment rooms.
In addition to standard infection control protocols, we are disinfecting all areas that our visitors and patients will come into contact with to ensure the entire clinic is always sterile and ready for the next patient. On top of our usual sanitisation of dental treatment rooms, we are sanitising door handles, waiting areas, and the front desk regularly. We provide hand sanitisers for all visitors and patients at the front desk.
We are continuing the usage of pre-procedural mouth rinses for all attending patients as studies have shown that this helps with lowering the transmission of viral particles in saliva and respiratory droplets.
All patients and accompanying visitors are still required to wear their masks when entering the clinic.
This applies to the waiting area inside the clinic and inside the consultation rooms when not being treated. See Annex B of the MOH guidelines.
Staff are also required to wear their masks in all patient-facing areas.
