Dear valued patients,

 

March 19, 2020 Update: As directed by The College of Dental Surgeons of BC, we will be cancelling all appointments this week and are closed until further notice. Dr. Kevin Andersen will still be available for Dental Emergencies

Our team will be rescheduling patients and available to answer questions on regular business days from 9am to 2pm. If you are unable to reach us, please use our contact form or leave message, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we are able.

Please standby for the latest updates.

 

We always take your health and safety seriously and are taking extra precautions to keep our patients and team safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. We continue to maintain our high level of sterilization and hospital-grade cleanliness. We are in constant communication with Interior Health Authority, The College of Dental Surgeons of BC and The College of Dental Hygienists of BC. As well, we continue to be on alert to any new information being released from the WHO or our Government bodies both Federal and Provincially, and will act in the best interest of protecting the health of our patients and staff. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best and safest possible treatment. Should you have any questions around our policies, please do not hesitate to contact our office directly.
