She had much […]See full post

Dear Valued Patients,
The Royal College of Dental Surgeons, the body that regulates dentistry in Ontario, has recommended that all non-essential and elective dental services be suspended immediately. This is in response to COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing.
The health and well- being of our patients, staff and the community is of the highest priority, and therefore I shall be closing our office effective March 16.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause any of you, and trust that you understand and support this measure. If you have a dental emergency please contact me at 613-255-7988 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will endeavour to take care of you as quickly and effectively as possible.
We will continue to monitor this situation as it evolves, and as soon as things stabilize, we shall be contacting you to reschedule your dental appointment at the first mutually convenient time.
Stay safe and well.
