As the COVID-19 pandemic situation continues to evolve, we have been closely monitoring and following the recommendations of our dental college (RCDSO) and Public Health.
At this time, the RCDSO strongly advises that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended immediately. Churchill Meadows Dental Centre will be available limited days and hours effective March 16th, 2020 to see dental emergencies who pass the screening protocol by telephone booked appointments only.
This decision is made in an effort to minimize the spread of the virus and to ensure safety of our patients, their families and our staff. Your overall health and well being is of the utmost importance to us. We all share the responsibility to help reduce the spread of this virus and protect those more vulnerable than ourselves. What this means for our dental office staff and patients is the following:
- All dental cleaning / hygiene appointments scheduled between March 16, 2020 and April 4, 2020 will be cancelled and rescheduled after April 6 after the suggested isolation period.
- We will be available remotely on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9am to 12noon to answer any questions you may have and to reschedule appointments.
- During this period of temporary partial closure, we will be available for dental emergencies involving pain, swelling, infection, and trauma for patients who pass the screening protocol by telephone booked appointments only. Please contact us at (905) 814-4001. For emergencies after hours – Dr. Patel can be reached directly on his cell at (647) 688-8058.
- As new information becomes available and our college advises that dental offices can resume normal operations, we will be ready to return to our routine practices.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. We extend best wishes to you and your family for continued good health and look forward to seeing you once this crisis has passed.
Dr. Pravir Patel and Dr. Geeta Gupta
