Cultivating Mindfulness – Authentic Communication & Circling

Cultivating Mindfulness – Authentic Communication & Circling

We will learn the art of non-violent communication when we are stressed, tired, or frustrated.  We will learn how to communicate without blame and how to take ownership of our experience so that we feel more connection in our relationships.  We will also break out into smaller circles to practice the tools of authentic relating and gain more personalized community support.

Cultivating Mindfulness – Managing up & Avoiding the Drama Triangle

Cultivating Mindfulness – Managing up & Avoiding the Drama Triangle

Perio in the Peninsula x Abroad; Cultivating Mindfulness

We will learn about how our fear creates drama and the role playing of either bully, saviour, and/or victim in relationship with ourselves and others.  We will practice identifying these dynamics and how to drop the roles we may be playing with co-workers, patients, or personal relationships for more ease in our lives.

What to expect on your next visit with us

What to expect on your next visit with us

To ensure the health and safety of our community, we have instituted a few changes to your next appointment with us.

Some things that you can expect to experience include:

1. Patient Wellness Screening

Prior to your visit with us, you will be contacted by a member of our team either through text message, email, or phone (based on your preference).  Here, we will ask you a series of questions about your recent exposure to the Covid-19 to assess your risk level and eligibility to visit our office.

a. Are you experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19?
b. Have you travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days?
c. Have you been in close contact with anyone with a confirmed case of Covid-19?

Should you answer Yes to any of the Wellness Screening questions, we will work with you to reschedule your appointment.

2. “Contact-less” Appointments

We have made updates to several of our processes to limit our “touchpoints” to as few as possible.  These changes include:

  • Taking payment over the phone
  • Digital forms, including patient medical history and surgical consent forms
  • Booking appointments over the phone
  • Digital information packages sent directly to your email

3. Patient Liaison

Prior to your next appointment with our office, you will receive a text message that you are to respond to when you’ve arrived safely.  We ask that you please wait in your car until we send you a text message to say that we are all ready for you.

You will then be greeted by our Patient Liaison who will perform a Wellness Screening, which includes taking your temperature .

Our Patient Liaison will instruct you on proper hand washing techniques and will give you a mask to wear at all times while in the clinic.

The Patient Liaison will then bring you directly to your treatment operatory where you will be cared for by one of our clinical team members.

While this may mean a greater efficiency, it does mean one unfortunate thing… our Nespresso and teaBOT will not be available at this time.  Trust us, we are as upset about this as you!
