On March 16th 2020, The College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia released a statement strongly recommending that all elective and non-essential dental services be suspended immediately.
Here at Okanagan Orthodontics we are committed to the safety and well-being of our patients, their families, and our surrounding community. Amidst the global response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking action to slow its continued spread by reducing non-essential trips out of your homes.
Effective Tuesday March 17th, we will be temporarily closing our office to all routine orthodontic treatment. All patients with appointments from March 17th to 27th will be contacted as soon as possible to cancel their appointments. After March 27th, information regarding the status of scheduled appointments will be available on our answering service as well as on our social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram). As soon as we are able to reopen, you will be contacted to reschedule your appointments.
We will be available for emergency care. Please do not present yourself to our office without an appointment. If you have an emergency involving PAIN, BLEEDING, or ORAL INFECTION please contact our office directly at (250) 860-3111 and follow the instructions provided on our messaging system.
We share your concerns during this uncertain time and believe through diligence, together we can make a difference.
From all of us at Okanagan Orthodontics,
Stay informed. Stay distanced. Stay well.
