Now that our dental clinic is seeing patients again, it’s essential to us that you have peace of mind when scheduling your appointments during COVID-19. A lot has changed about the way we operate, but one thing that will never change is our commitment to you and your family’s safety and well-being.
First, we want you to know that it is safe to go back to the dentist in Burnaby, BC!

During COVID-19, we have instituted several new protocols to keep you, your family, and our dental team safe.
The following are some highlights of what's different and what you can expect. You can find a comprehensive explanation of our patient guidelines here. If you are looking for a safe dental home and open dentist near me in Burnaby, BC, please call Central Park Dental Clinic.
Appointment Pre-Screening Questions
Before your appointment, we will contact you to ask screening questions, including asking if you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. We will repeat these questions when you are in our dental clinic.
We will manage appointments to maintain social distancing between our patients and minimize the number of patients in our clinic at any given time.
This requires us to allow more time between appointments and may result in fewer scheduling options for you. We will do our best to accommodate your needs; however, we do ask for your understanding in this regard.
When You Arrive for Your Appointment
We will take your temperature and ask that you use hand sanitizer before entering and upon leaving our clinic. We will also ask that you gargle with an antiseptic oral rinse to reduce exposure to germs.
Our Enhanced Office Sanitation Protocols
Even before COVID-19, we used an air purification system to filter the air and sanitize it multiple times per hour. We will continue to increase the number of units we use as they become available.
We have enhanced the disinfection and sanitation of our operatories before and after each appointment, using fogging or mist devices in addition to routine disinfection procedures.
