COVID-19 and Emergency Dental Treatment in Maple Ridge

The government of British Columbia has declared state of emergency, as such, dentist can only provide emergency services and stop all elective and non emergent care such as dental cleanings and fillings. This means that dentists can only see patients needing urgent dental treatment such as uncontrollable bleeding, severe tooth pain and swelling.
If you think you have an emergency, give us a call. Our maple ridge dentist will ask you for information about your situation and give you recommendations based on current guidelines.

Do not go to hospital room if you don’t have any symptoms of COVID-19 as this will add stress and overwhelm our health system.

If you are experiencing any dental pain along with symptoms of COVID-19 please contact toll free number in BC 1-888-268-4319 (1-888-COVID19) or visit self assessment website.

Is it safe to visit dentist?

We’ve always followed strict sterilization and infection control protocols but we’ve gone even beyond to protect our patients, that includes proper PPE, shield, mask gowns and eye wear.

All our instruments are heat sterilized between patient and single use items are disposed of after use.
