Dear Clearwater Community,
Due to recent information regarding the COVID-19 confirmed cases of attendees at the Pacific Dental Conference March 5-7, Clearwater Dental Clinic will be closed for a minimum of 14-days. Dr. Kishore and her Hygienist attended this conference and have been advised to isolate themselves for a 14-day period. If you were a patient of ours on the days March 10th, 11th or 12th, please monitor yourself for any flu like symptoms. Dr. Kishore and the Hygienist are in very good health and have had no symptoms.
As well, due to COVID-19 regulatory bodies of the Dental and Dental Hygiene profession across Canada have announced suspension of non-essential dental treatment for a 14-day period.
This means that there will be no dental services available for a period of 14-days, non-essential or emergency. After 14-days, we will provide an update to the community as to whether or not emergency or both emergency and non-essential dental treatment may resume.
The College of Dental Surgeons BC defines a dental emergency as: “A person who needs immediate attention to deal with uncontrolled bleeding, uncontrolled swelling, traumatic injury or uncontrolled severe pain.”
Should you find yourself in one of these situations please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. Kishore will be checking this e-mail account every three hours, during weekdays. We will do our best to respond as quickly and promptly as possible with an advisory of what to do next. Emergency services are still available in Kamloops during this time. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact us via the e-mail provided.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to our patients but we want to uphold the safety and health of the community first. We thank you for your support as a community and we truly care for each one of you.
Clearwater Dental Clinic.
