To our valued patients,
In light of the recent updates to COVID-19, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) has recommended that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended. Only emergency dental treatment should continue.
We will be seeing patients on an emergency basis by appointment only. Please do not visit the office in person, without first contacting us to arrange an appointment, as our dental providers will only be on location during appointed times. Someone will be available to answer calls from 8 AM to 5 PM this week.
Examples of dental emergencies include:
- Intense pain that worsens and does not subside after a few days
- Swelling and bleeding in the affected area
- Signs of fever or infection
Treatment to fix cosmetic dental issues such as a small tooth chip that does not have accompanying pain, bleeding or swelling is an example of non-essential treatment.
We thank you for your cooperation during this time, as we adhere to the current recommendations and guidelines to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
