East Point Dental

Now Open at East Point Shopping in Saint John.
Welcoming new patients.

Welcome to East Point Dental

To our valued patients:

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding during the many ups and downs of the pandemic. We wanted to share this Covid-19 update with you.

Dentistry is deemed as an essential service and our clinic remains OPEN in Level 3.

We have always worked diligently to provide a safe environment given our stringent infection control procedures. During the last several months, we have implemented enhanced measures to include more PPE and screening, staggering appointments and additional ventilation measures.

The Omicron variant is highly transmittable and so high-risk patients should consider deferring elective treatment during this wave (the next 3-4 weeks as predicted by Public Health).

These patients include:

  • Children under 5 years old
  • Unvaccinated children
  • Pregnant women, particularly unvaccinated
  • Patients with complex medical conditions

Any urgent or emergency care for patients in high-risk groups will be assessed and managed on a case-by-case basis.

Here are some additional details:

  • As per New Brunswick Dental Society Operation Plan, we will follow all recommendations from Public Health.
  • We will continue to wear additional PPE and screen all staff and patients.
  • Each treatment space at East Point Dental is equipped with Surgically Clean Air Jade Air Purifiers. This is a medical grade air system that is one of the most advanced on the market.
  • You MUST be available by phone to answer pre-screening questions prior to your dental appointment and will be screened again in person when you arrive.
  • If screening reveals signs of symptoms of Covid-19, unless it is a dental emergency, the appointment must be deferred for a minimum of 14 days, and patients MUST call Tele-Care 811 or their primary healthcare provider.
  • Patients who report symptoms and/or have been advised by Public Health to self-isolate, MUST defer treatment until they have been asymptomatic for 14 days.
  • Our waiting room remains closed, and the door will be locked to minimize the potential for contacts between patients. We ask that patients call the office at 634-7171 upon arrival (at the time of their scheduled appointment and not earlier) for entry instructions.
  • Facemasks MUST continue to be worn at all times except when in active treatment.
  • Patients MUST continue to use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the clinic.
  • Patients MUST attend their appointments alone unless circumstances require assistance (e.g., child) at which point ONE other person may attend. The accompanying guest will be screened in the same manner as the patient.

As always, we remain committed to your dental needs, health and safety. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us. If you have any questions, please call our clinic directly at 634-7171.
