COVID-19 Safety Protocols
*As per the recommendation of WorksafeBC
UPDATE: Currently, (As of Nov 19, 2020) Dr. Bonnie Henry has mentioned that they are not seeing transmissions in salons and spas. We remain open and are not ordered to close. We are closely monitoring the advise of public health officials, following all the recommended industry guidelines and remaining vigilant when it comes to cleaning and sanitation. Keeping our Smile Bar clean and your health and safety will always be our top priority!
DISINFECTION & SANITATION:
We will continue to use medical grade disinfectants. Our disinfectant is approved by Coastal Health and fights against the human coronavirus. Our floors are bleached daily. High volume and frequently touched areas such as door handles, will be sanitized multiple times a day. Everything we use for the service is SINGLE USE and disposable, we do not reuse anything. Teeth whitening stations, sinks and treatment room will be sanitized and disinfected after each use.
We have always asked clients to wash/sanitize their hands prior to the start of each session and we will continue to do so. Please make sure to wash/sanitize your hands after you use the bathroom.
Sink area (for teeth whitening): Please wash your hands after you rinse. A cup is provided for you, please don't use your hands for rinsing.
Consent forms must be completed online before you arrive for your appointment. A link to our consent form will be included in the appointment confirmation email. 24 hours before your appointment we will send a COVID self assessment questionnaire to confirm you are not experiencing any symptoms prior to the start of your appointment.
If you are experiencing symptoms, you would need to reschedule your appointment. You will not be charged the cancellation fee if you reschedule. Please be courteous and inform us, we are operating at limited capacity and there are people on wait list. We reserve the right to fill your spot if you are unable to make it. No shows will be charged.
EXTRA PROTECTIVE MEASURE & PPE:
Acrylic barriers will be put in place at reception and other necessary areas. Techs will be wearing masks. Barriers will be wrapped around the head of the LED whitening light and other devices used for facials.
As per Dr. Bonnie Henry's new mandate effective Nov. 19 2020 you are now required to wear a mask upon entering and exiting the smile bar. Once you are seated in your pod or treatment room you may remove it.
Only bring necessities with you to your appointment. Please leave large personal belongings (such as coats in your car).
To limit contact, we will not be accepting cash payments at this time. We can accept credit and debit cards.
We will be operating at limited capacity. Appointments will be arranged to ensure social distancing. Please DO NOT BRING ANYONE WITH YOU. Arrive at your appointment at the exact time. If you arrive early, and we are at max capacity you will be asked to wait outside.
Upon arrival your temperature will be checked. If it exceeds 38 degrees Celsius your appointment will have to be rescheduled. All staff will also have their temperatures monitored daily.
