Conditions required to undergo treatment

Whether or not we can (re)start your treatment dependents on a number of conditions. These conditions are necessary for your own safety, the safety of our other visitors and the safety of our employees.

We are unfortunately forced to postpone your treatment if you can answer YES to any one of the questions:

  • Do you have corona at this moment?

Extra measures undertaken by us: what you can expect from us

As an oral healthcare provider we have a hands-on profession. As a result of this we have always been aware of the importance of hygiene and infection prevention measures and therefor work in accordance with strict regulations and guidelines. In addition to these already applied hygiene and infection prevention measures, extra regulations and guidelines measures have been taken to guarantee the safety and health of you, the other patients and our employees.

To name a few of the extra precautions we are taking: We will plan extra time between patients to disinfect the entire treatment room after each visit, the same applies to all public areas. We plan the agendas to have as few patients as possible simultaneously present in the buildings. This is to prevent unnecessary contact with other people. We offer additional protective equipment/wear to our staff. We will be extra attentive to comply with all protocols and the extra imposed hygiene and infection prevention measures, regulations and guidelines as directed by our professional organisations and government.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and your confidence in our team and look forward to seeing you soon at CPI Amsterdam.
