Corona: rules for both your safety and ours
We have started regular treatments again. For both your safety and ours, we ask you to observe the following rules:
- Take your temperature before leaving for our practice. Is this 38⁰C or higher? Then please cancel. If you have not taken your temperature, we will do this at the practice (from a safe distance, of course).
- Be sure to arrive at the right time, preferably just before the appointment time.
- Come on your own if possible. Only if this is strictly necessary, one parent or companion may come along.
- Disinfect your hands upon arrival
- Keep a distance of 1.5 metres in the waiting room.
- Leave the practice as soon as possible after treatment.

Our team has been trained very strictly to prevent infections. Our hygiene protocols are very strict and the hygiene requirements we meet are in line with those of hospitals. We take all precautionary measures to guarantee your health and our health. So always follow the instructions of our employees.

Important: proper hand hygiene
The coronavirus has shown hands to be an important source of infection. Therefore, when entering the practice, we ask you to disinfect your hands with hand alcohol. It is important that you do not touch your face and items such as your mobile phone afterwards. In the waiting room and when making appointments, we all try to keep the 1.5-metres distance advised by the central government as much as possible.
Good to know
- We do not shake hands, but welcome you with a smile.
- For some treatments we will let you rinse for one minute.
- In the treatment room, we adhere to the Infection Prevention Guideline in Dental Care Practices. In addition, we have taken further hygiene measures.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
