This begins with strict in-office protocol to ensure proper hygiene and safety, minimizing risks from harmful viruses and bacteria. This commitment began well before the pandemic, with staff members attending a 1-day training at the University of Toronto in 2018 on the topic “Infection Prevention and Control: A Guide to Best Practices for All Oral Health Care Professionals.” The same year, the Frizzell Dental team set in place air purification units designed to eliminate airborne pathogens.
In addition, Frizzell Dental has long engaged the services of Practice Health Check, a company run by a University of Toronto microbiology professor. These infection control specialists assess and instill best practices through a continuous quality control methodology. They work closely with office staff members to ensure that all aspects of Public Health Ontario/Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario requirements are complied with.
