Looking forward to seeing you soon

2020-07-14T17:46:54+00:00

We were able to get most of our staff back to work last week to take care of some more urgent cases, but this week, the trades are working on the office air filtration again. They’ve promised me that they’ll be done by Friday. Fingers crossed! Starting up everything is very challenging when we are [...]

Office Opening Update

2020-07-01T16:01:00+00:00

More than a month has gone by, and unfortunately, we are still not able to open for regular care. We had been waiting on precious PPE supplies, and they’ve just arrived last week, but we are still waiting on the installation of the air purification system. It’s taken longer than we’d hoped, but we understand, [...]

Not quite there yet, but close!

2020-05-22T22:17:54+00:00

We have received many calls requesting appointments, but we are not yet prepared to open. Personal protective equipment, especially masks, are scarce and on back order. We had donated ours at the beginning of the crisis and now we can’t get any for ourselves to use. We are still working on building in an air [...]

We have missed you!

2020-05-08T16:00:00+00:00

Great news! On May 6th, Premier Horgan announced that dental offices can plan to reopen in the near future. We have not been given a precise date for commencement, and our College of Dental Surgeons has not yet given us the affirmation either. We envision opening in late May or early June. We know that [...]

Looking Beyond COVID-19

2020-04-26T00:10:18+00:00

Our last month has been challenging for everyone. Initially, we hoped that this was just a short term sacrifice we had to make, but it would soon be better. There was so much confusion with what had happened and how it happened so quickly. Our office was closed and my staff sent home. Our patients [...]

COVID-19 Update

2020-03-23T17:31:19+00:00

I hope that you are all well and healthy. It’s mind-bending how much the world has changed in the last week! It’s now been 2 weeks since we attended the Pacific Dental Conference, and I’m thankful that we at Fairview Dental Centre are all well and without symptoms. Some patients have called, concerned that they [...]

COVID-19 – Your Health is Our Top Priority

2020-03-17T15:24:36+00:00

This is an unprecedented time in my years! Through much deliberation over the weekend, watching the news, conversing with our colleague friends, and waiting for direction from our governing bodies, Angelique and I went in this morning to advise everyone that we have decided to close the office for at least two weeks or [...]

Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ)

2018-03-05T20:46:24+00:00

I recently had the opportunity to attend a full day lecture on temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) issues and related health challenges. It turned out to be extremely informative! The TMJ is the joint that hinges the lower jaw. There is normally a disc between the head of the joint as it sits in the fossa [...]
