Dental professionals may encounter patients with suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection in their practice. So it is the responsibility of health care professionals to follow universal precautions while providing care and at the same time prevent the transmission of infection to susceptible patients.
As the disease is known to spread predominantly through respiratory droplets or in contact with the inanimate objects on which the virus can survive for several hours to days,we at FMS maintain high standards of care and infection control in our practice while promoting the health and well-being of our patients during these challenging times. We follow globalmeasures to mitigate the spread of this virus.
As health care providers we keep ourselves updated with the current pandemic and implementing protocols like patient screening, infection control strategies as per the guidelines of Centre for diseases control and prevention. Our staff is provided with adequate training to promote many levels of screening and preventive measures while delivering dental treatment to the patients.
The norm has changed where you can book an appointment over telephone or walk in directly and get treated for all your dental concerns. We have nownew set of protocols for the safety of both patients and doctors, which render our patients to seek and our doctors to provide dental care with utmost safety.
Keeping in mind the outbreak of corona virus pandemic, we have limited the number of appointments in a day and are performing only emergency treatments until next three months. We are currently providing emergency dental services at our International Dental Centre, Jubilee Hills. We will walk you through the steps as to how to approach us for your dental issues and walk out uninfected.
(The most pertinent questions for initial screening include any exposure to a person with known or suspected COVID-19 presentation, any recent travel history to an area with high incidence of COVID-19 or presence of any symptoms such as fever or cough. We are also updated with live tracking of reported cases and high risk areas to identify possible Covid-19 patients.)
After the consultation or treatment, we ensure to disinfect the inanimate surfaces using chemicals and methods recently approved for Covid-19 and maintain a dry environment to curb the spread of corona virus.
