Covid -19 updates

Covid 19 up date:

Please call ahead for an appointment to 250-586-0443. We need time to properly clean the office,chair room and lab after each patient leaves. Please help stem the spread of this virus by wearing a mask, it does not protect you, it protects me and my office. Thank you for being part of the solution. 

In order for us to see you;

  • you must not exhibit signs of fever, cough, sneezing or difficulty breathing
  • you must not have travelled to or from a COVID 19 affected area within the last 14 days
  • you must not have been in contact with a known or probable COVID 19 case in the last 14 days
  • you must not have been in contact with someone who was ill and has traveled to a COVID19 affected area within the last 14 days
You will be asked all of these questions over the phone and be required to sign a medical declaration form before we see you.

We know this is a huge inconvenience and ask for your patience durring this difficult time. Hopefully we will be back to normal soon.

How we do repairs during the pandemic:

Wash your denture with dishsoap/water and rince well. This breaks down the protective fat layer around viruses (hense the hand washing). Place your denture and any pieces in a closable bag, Add 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 teaspoon ordinary bleach to the bagged denture. Do not do this with metal partial dentures they will tarnish like silverware.
 A 1/100 bleach solution disinfects surfaces in 10 minutes. This virus is not hard to kill, it is very easy to catch though. Seal the bag and place it inside another sealable bag to gard against leaks. Close up everything and call the office at 250-586-0443 to set up a drop off time. We will meet you at the door and repair your denture within 24 hours. We will call you to arrange a pickup time.
