Official re-opening July 2nd, 2020.
We are happy to announce that our clinic will be re-opening its doors for regular dental care on July 2nd. Due to Covid-19 there are some important changes you should be aware of before your appointment.
1. We ask that all patients reschedule their appointment if they are exhibiting any signs or symptoms of Covid-19 such as fever, cough, loss of taste or smell or general malaise.
2. If you have travelled outside of Canada, we ask that you reschedule your appointment until you have been back and symptom-free for 2 weeks.
3. We ask that all patients arrive wearing a mask.
4. Please arrive on time for your appointment but not too early as we have limited space in the waiting room- the appointment time given must be respected to ensure proper social distancing.
5. All patients must wash their hands on arrival with the hand sanitizer provided at the door.
6. Only the patient will be allowed into the clinic for their appointment. All family members must wait outside or in their car. For a young child's appointment, we ask that only one parent accompanies the child to their appointment.
7. A staff member will meet you at the door to fill out a Wellness form and to take your temperature with a contactless digital thermometer.
8. You will then be escorted to the treatment room for your care
We have been working very hard to ensure the safety and security for both patients and staff. Since March, we have closed in every treatment room, added a special air filtration unit in each room that will filter the air completely every 2-4 minutes and have implemented all the necessary protocols such as visors, surgical caps and gowns and special masks along with our regular equipment of surgical scrubs, gloves and safety glasses.
Due to these added measures, there is a $15 PPE charge when seeing hygienist for treatment and a $30 PPE charge when seeing a dentist/assistant for treatment. It is important to note that we do not have the ability to know if your insurance will cover these fees- if you would like to be sure, you would need to contact your insurance provider directly for information.
It is also important to know that our sterilization system has always been hospital-grade and follows the highest standards to ensure your safety..
We look forward to seeing you again and hope you have been well. As always - stay safe and healthy!

How should I prepare my child for his/her first dental visit?
It is very important that your child is made to feel comfortable on their first visit. Parents can tell their child that they are going to sit in a comfortable chair and have their teeth counted. A low stress situation is best, with absolutely no pressure to do any procedures: simply to have your child get used to the clinic in a non-threatening way.
What paperwork do I need to bring with me for my first visit?
On your first visit you will need to fill out a medical questionnaire, so be sure to have a complete list of medications and your medical history. Remember to bring your insurance card or coverage information. We can file your insurance information directly on-line to avoid delays. Please bring your child's medicare card and if you are receiving social assistance remember to bring your blue slip.
Which of my child's procedures are covered by the government?
From birth to 10 yrs. one oral exam per year, any required fillings and extractions, and any dental emergencies are covered by the provincial government. Please note that cleaning and fluoride treatments are NOT covered.
How often do I need check-ups and cleaning?
At your first examination I will recommend a schedule, as each case is different. Generally, I recommend every 6 months.
Is it safe to bleach my teeth?
Yes - but you must follow the product directions correctly, and never for more than 3 consecutive weeks. You may experience some sensitivity while bleaching. This is not harmful and is only temporary.
What is a CEREC procedure, and why should I get one?
CEREC (www.cereconline.com) is recommended for large fillings or after a root canal treatment. This product is stronger and longer lasting than regular white or silver fillings, more closely resembles natural enamel and is completely metal-free. It is also a more conservative procedure than a crown, in that is preserves as much of the remaining natural tooth structure as possible. Please visit the website to find out more about this recommended procedure.
Should I have my amalgam fillings replaced?
During your examination, we will evaluate your fillings and if there is a medical reason to replace them, we can discuss the best option at that time.
What are my payment options?
We accept all major credit cards, ATM cards and cash. For your convenience, we have arranged for electronic claims with insurance companies for instant information about your claim. Please call our office if you have any questions or concerns about your insurance.
