To our Valued Patients:

As a team we are following the news surrounding COVID-19 very closely.  Everyone is being impacted one way or another by this virus.  Whether by being quarantined, self-isolating, working on the front lines or sadly being sick, we are all affected.  We are all in this together. We also know many of you have questions, and we are here to help as best we can. 

As healthcare providers that perform our services in very close proximity to our patients, the potential for virus transmission is very high.  It is our responsibility ALWAYS to keep our patients safe.  As a profession we must strictly follow the instructions and recommendations of our Provincial Medical Health Officer and the College of Dental Surgeons of BC.  Not only will this protect our clinicians, staff and patients, but it will help us lessen the burden on hospital emergency rooms and our overburdened medical system.

A small supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has been ordered for when we are able to reopen our office. The demand for PPE is currently very high and is being directed to more urgent centres, and we don’t yet have an estimated date that we will be able to be fit tested and cleared to treat emergencies.  At the moment there is a small number of dentists (mainly endodontists and oral surgeons) that are available for emergency treatment only

If you feel you have a dental emergency you may still call or email Dr. Gallant’s office.  Phones are being monitored daily, and there you will also find her emergency personal contact number.

The BCDA has also published a fact sheet for dental patients to help answer any questions you may have regarding Covid-19 and dentistry.

After reading the fact sheet, if you have questions for us please do reach out.  You can always contact Dr. Gallant and her team via phone or email. We are here for you as best we are able during this challenging time.

For now keep practicing physical distancing, wash your hands, avoid touching your face and as always brush and floss.

 

Take care and stay well,

 

Dr Chanel Gallant and her team
