COVID-19 Update

 

Our office is currently closed due to COVID-19

Oral Health Solutions understands the importance of responding quickly and effectively to developments with the spread of COVID-19.
Like all of you, we have been monitoring the evolving global impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and are monitoring WHO updates and Health Canada/ Provincial Health authority updates daily.
At this time, Oral Health Solutions is closed until further notice. All appointments are cancelled and will be rescheduled once we reopen.
We had two employees attend the Pacific Dental Conference and both have been cleared with no symptoms. All employees are self-quarantined and are following the mandate of the government. No employees have signs or symptoms of COVID-19.
We understand that these are unusual circumstances and appreciate your support. We will continue to monitor the situation and advise if there are any changes.

Update (April 9)

We hope you are staying healthy and safe during this time as we continue to social distance to keep everyone safe.

While we have not been given a return to work date as of yet, we have been busy behind the scenes. We are working with our professional organizations and monitoring Health Canada with regards to any changes that will need to be made moving forward.

Right now it’s about compiling information and coming up with the best systems and standards to keep our patients and staff safe.

Rest assured we are staying abreast of the situation and will be implementing the best options for safety.

Please feel free to call the office at (604) 532-9040 if you have any questions or concerns, Dr. Garrett’s number is on the answering machine. With four young children at home and no school, he is looking forward to leaving his “teaching” career and getting back to dental.

We are in this together!
