COVID-19 Update: Patient Health and Safety

Dear valued patients, 

We want to keep you as informed as possible during these uncertain times and champion transparency to keep you up-to-date on our ongoing operations. 

Effective immediately, the Alberta Dental Association has implemented a mandatory suspension of all non-emergency dental treatment and services. All dentists in Alberta have a duty to prevent exposure to COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our patients and the public. Please understand we have a duty to the public and our patients to keep people healthy and safe and must follow procedures as such.  

Right now, we are working hard to contact each patient with an upcoming appointment. Our phone lines will remain open to anyone with questions or concerns. Please be advised our hours of operation have been shortened to 9 a.m.-3 p.m. regarding current events.  

If you have a dental emergency, or are unsure what this means for your treatment, please contact our office at (403) 225-1991 and we will be happy to assist you. 

Currently, we do not know how long this closure will last but we will keep you updated as soon as we get more information. 

Please refer to these links below for accurate information regarding all coronavirus news:

  1. Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC)
  2. Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
  3. World Health Organization advice for the public

Thank you. We will get through this together.
