HOW YIANNIKOS CENTRE FOR HOLISTIC DENTISTRY IN CYPRUS CARES FOR YOUR SAFETY
Patient health and safety always comes first
At Yiannikos Centre for Holistic Dentistry, we’ve made necessary changes to our clinic’s processes in order to comply and adapt with the post-coronavirus era.
We would love to share these with you all!
When you choose Yiannikos Centre for Holistic Dentistry, you are choosing:
Greater Digital Administration
We have invested in an online booking system for your convenience and have created a digital version of our medical history forms so you can fill them out remotely, prior your visit, in order to minimise waiting times at our reception area.
All patients have the option for a 10-minute tele-meeting via Viber, WhatsApp, FaceTime or Messenger with Dr Yiannikos before their visit to discuss their dental issues and concerns.
Additional Protective Measures
We will continue to permanently use all of the protective measures that we implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Why? Because we remain very cautious regarding your health.
These previous AND additional measures include:
- Disposable face masks
- Disposable protective hats
- Disposable surgical scrubs
- Disposable face shields
- Disposable dental chair covers
- Disposable protective barriers (for camera, led, handles, x-rays)
- Disposable carbon masks
- Shoe covers
- Automatic shoe cover dispensers
- Use of rubber dams during our dental treatments
No Waiting in the Reception Area
We acknowledge the fact that you may still be concerned about social gatherings, crowded places and want to continue social distancing.
For this reason, we have created processes to limit waiting times and your exposure to other patients.
If requested, we can send you a text message when the doctor is ready to see you so you can come into the clinic.
NOTE: There will be no delays in the clinic environment! We are proud to operate on a strict schedule.
No waiting time, while having the appropriate process in place, through which we control the incidence of patients running into each other at our clinic.
New Treatment Plan Templates
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we have changed our template plan templates so you can prioritise your dental concerns (in a written form) to make sure we address your problems based on what you consider a priority.
For example, you might have two separate issues that you would like treated. If you consider one to be a bigger concern than the other, we will do our best to treat what you consider more important first.
Enhanced Benefits for Your Health
After so many days being locked down, isolated and living in fear of infection, wouldn’t you rather visit a clinic that implements procedures that not only takes your health seriously, but even enhances it?
This is the main reason why we use lasers and PRF treatments at our practice.
Use preprocedural rinse of peroxide
We use a rinse of peroxide for our precious patients at the beginning of the appointment for 60 seconds and again after the appointment.
Hydrogen peroxide is a mouthwash that decreases the viral content of saliva. COVID-19 is spread through saliva, so the sooner any bacteria that reaches your mouth is destroyed, the better.
Weekly Preventive disinfection against germs including coronavirus from an approved company
The solution used during the application disinfects the space EVERYWHERE.
After application, the space is free of germs. The disinfectant used during the application is one of the approved disinfectants recommended by the Ministry of Health for disinfection against coronavirus.
At Yiannikos Centre for Holistic Dentistry, we only use intra-oral scanners for digital measurements and intra-oral cameras (no old-school mirrors or molds).
Through using this advanced equipment, we can limit how many times you need to come back to the clinic.
We like to follow a green and environmentally friendly approach for all treatments, therapies and operations.
All receipts, invoices, treatment plans and brochures will be sent electronically to minimise our carbon footprint, paper waste and (perhaps most importantly) the spread of germs and bacteria.
Dental Air Vacuum System
At our centre, we use a high volume air filtration system known as Dental Air Vacuum System. The vacuum is designed specifically to remove and filter aerosols and microbiological contaminants away from the immediate breathing area of you, our patient and us.
Our vacuum system offers the First Line of Defense providing a safe worry-free environment for our dental centre.
Installed Air Purifiers
For the past few years, we have used special air purifiers which permanently removes harmful substances and viruses from the air inside the clinic; including coronavirus (COVID-19).
Additionally, these air purifiers are also able to filter indoor air to eliminate allergens, pollen, fine dust, as well as chemicals and can even filter out respirable ultra-fine particles (known as nanoparticles) that can lead to illness.
Medical waste is collected by approved operators who dispose of it in an environmentally friendly way.
