An important message regarding COVID-19.

We are here for you and accepting emergency visits

Your oral care is our number one priority and if you or your family member has a dental emergency, we are here for you.

If this is an emergency please call our main number immediately, so we can actively address your needs.

We will be reaching out to reschedule all of your routine visits once normal operations resume.

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.

For all patient visits, we:

  • Perform a risk assessment and screen all patients in advance of the appointment and upon arrival at the clinic
  • Observe meticulous hand hygiene practices throughout the day and hand washing before putting on PPE or handling anything that the patient may handle
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment during the appointment and interactions with patients and their environment, such as gloves, mask, eye protection, and gowns, as required

Between patient visits, we:

  • Clean, disinfect and sterilize all instruments
  • Wipe all operatory surfaces with disinfectant

In the reception area, we:

  • Disinfect all counters and surfaces
  • Make antibacterial hand rub available

At least daily, we:

  • Empty standard garbage receptacles and change liners
  • Clean floors (vacuum/dry mop and wet mop)
  • Clean and disinfect high touch wall features (light switches, thermostat, door handles, ledges, etc.)
  • Clean reception area, administrative areas and rooms
  • Clean and disinfect all bathrooms

We 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.

Happy New Year from all of us at Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics!

Call for Correction with Sponsored Content – “What Is a Denturist”

To: Robyn Wilkinson, Managing Editor
Melinda Crake, Sales Manager

Dear Ms. Wilkinson and Ms. Crake,

I am writing today on behalf of the Canadian Dental Association with respect to a sponsored content piece which ran in your paper this week. The article, titled “What Is a Denturist”, contained information that was not only misleading, but absolutely false.

At the end of the first paragraph, the following sentence appears: “A denturist, sometimes referred to as a prosthodontist, will make and fit your dentures or implants and can help with any necessary replacements or repairs.” The CDA would like to make absolutely clear that a denturist is not a prosthodontist, and the two professions should never be conflated.

Prosthodontists are university-trained professionals who have undergone a minimum of ten years of university training, including three years of additional specialty training beyond dental school. They are doctors, recognized as dental specialists. Denturists are technicians, with three years of postsecondary training at the college level.

Denturists are not able to provide diagnoses, nor are they permitted based on their scope of practice to establish a comprehensive treatment plan. Moreover, denturists cannot place implants into a patient’s mouth as they are not permitted to perform surgery. They are limited to providing removable dentures.

Denturists can make assessments of patients, but they do not have the diagnostic knowledge to provide a diagnosis. They also are not supposed to take an x-ray of a patient, as per Article 6 of the Ontario Healing Arts Radiation Protection Act, nor are they able to use those radiographic images for diagnostic purposes.

The Canadian Dental Association strongly urges you to provide a correction to the article in a subsequent edition of the paper, and to address the version that is posted on your website either by correcting the information therein, or removing the article.

We would be pleased to answer any further questions you may have.
