Dear Preston Dental Centre patient,
I hope this email finds you healthy and staying well during this period of isolation. Due to Covid-19, Preston Dental Centre has significantly reduced our services. We continue to offer emergency services and consults on a case by case basis. As well, we are available to answer questions about your dental care and any concerns via phone or email.
Please feel free to contact our office at 306-343-5566 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you require care outside of our regular business hours please call Dr. Jason Langin at 306-596-3796 or email email@example.com
We also have a text option from the homepage of our website www.prestondental.ca Please click the ‘Chat’ button in the bottom right-hand corner. In the event of an emergency, please contact us via the above channels. We are working to ensure that we do not add demands to our healthcare system with dental emergencies.
The dental industry has been identified as an area of risk due to the modality of care that is provided. We want to assure patients that we have implemented all of the recommended safety protocols as well as additional measures recommended by our colleagues around the globe. In the event you will be visiting us for dental care or treatment, we will provide you with information regarding our new screening process and protocols on how best to keep safe during an appointment. In addition, our office is equipped with Vida-Shield technology installed in each treatment room and at the front desk. This air treatment technology has proven extremely effective at managing aerosols. The UVC light bulbs and filters eliminate the virus in the air. The air within our clinic is constantly being circulated to minimize any harmful aerosols that may be present. You can learn more about this technology here.
I have also included an extremely helpful video that helps to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that is surrounding us all. This video is from a respiratory physician on the front lines in New York. He has extremely valuable insights into the behaviour of this virus as well as how to protect against it. Please take the time to watch it here. This has significantly helped with some much-needed confidence in managing my concerns.
From all of us at Preston Dental Centre, please stay safe and healthy.
Dr. Jason Langin D.M.D
