UP Dental Clinic Implements Guidelines to Ensure Safety During Covid-19 Pandemic

The UP dental clinic has introduced new guidelines to ensure safety for patients, students and staff. These include:

  • Plastic screens between chairs to prevent cross contamination;
  • Temperature taking, hand sanitizer and Covid-19 questionnaires for staff, students and patients on entry to the clinic;
  • Strict requirements for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) including plastic outer gowns and face shields;
  • Thorough cleaning of dental units and surroundings between each patient.

These procedures are in line with the new draft National Guidelines for Dental Clinics which UP contributed to and which should be approved and released in the near future.

Patients have confidence in these new measures which have been implemented and monitored by our clinic Managers, Dr Sothea and Dr Sereybot. This is part of our ongoing efforts to make the UP Dental Clinic where patients can receive high quality treatment in a clean and safe environment. UP’s dental clinic is now taking patients.
