Dear valued patient,
Our practice undertakes industry best-in-class infection prevention and control measures, and we strongly believe that with sufficient protective measures in place, a dental practice represents a safe and low-risk environment for our patients.
We also keenly recognize our shared obligation and duty to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health and wellbeing of our patients, staff and the broader community.
As you may be aware, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) has released recommended steps for its members to take. They are strongly recommending that “all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended immediately. Emergency treatment should continue”. This decision will be revisited again the first week of April.
As such, we will be reaching out to you to reschedule all routine and non-essential dental procedures until the risk of transmission is lower, not only in our practices but in the community at large.
You will be contacted to reschedule, should you have an upcoming appointment. If you would like to reach out to us directly please call or email us.
Your oral care staff at, Dr Farid Shodjaee
