How to register for the appointment

Steps to register for new patients

After the appointment is mutually confirmed, an email will be sent with the links to online registration (For new patients) and consent forms to be signed.

Steps to check-in on the appointments date

Steps to online check-in

1. Please DO NOT come to the office. There will be no waiting room available.

 

2. Patient will need to use the “CHECK-IN” feature online to inform the office he/she has arrived.  ( 123-dental.com )

3. Office will contact the patient (call/text) once the office is safe and staff are ready to greet patient.

4. Patient will be screened and provided with necessary PPE at the door before stepping in.

Mask or face covering requirements:

Steps to check-in

1. Please be advised that the City of Toronto has passed a temporary by-law that wearing a mask or face covering will be required in indoor public spaces. 

2. This temporary by-law goes into effect on July 7, 2020. The mask or face covering should cover your nose, mouth and chin, without gaping. Wearing a mask or face covering is an additional measure we can take to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep each other safe.

3. This means that, with some exceptions, anyone entering an indoor premise are required to wear a mask or face covering while inside.
These spaces include lobby and common areas, washrooms and elevators.

Financials

New Protocols

With the new protocols in place, a minimal stay of the patient will be advised and arranged in the office.

Consequently, office won’t be able to spend time on the phone getting approval from insurance companies as before. Hence only those insurances with instant online coverage look up will be accepted for direct billing.

The rest will be treated as non-assignment. Patient will be responsible to pay the costs up-front. Office will provide the documents. Patient can use those documents to claim and get reimbursed in person.

Infection Control new Measures

New protocols for infection control

1. Appropriate PPE (Personal Protective equipment) would be used by clinicians (e.g. N95, face shields, overall outfits…) as per recommended protocols.

2. Air purifiers, placed in rooms to ensure the air quality

3. All the surfaces of the operating rooms will be disinfected by strong disinfectants and then alcohol sprayed before each use.

4. Operatory rooms will be separated and sealed for specific treatments.

5. Reception area will be separated from patient area with a glass barrier.

6. Office will go 100% green.

7 Patients would be screened and offered proper infection control material when stepping in and out.

Steps to cancel an in-office-appointment

Due to current situation

Due to current situation, arranging in-office appointments come with considerable complexity and high level of overhead.

Consequently, cancellations won’t be as feasible as before and will be subject to fees.

No shows and cancellations after 48 hours of appointment time will be charged as an emergency visit (90$).

Patient may inform the office in writing through email.
