dr wassenaar awarded certificate of merit by mayor of williams lake british columbia

On Tuesday, June 6, 2017 the city of Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada awarded two of its citizens with Certificates of Merit. The goal of the ceremony was to acknowledge Williams Lake citizens who are drawing positive attention for the city. Read about who was awarded and the specific reason that Dr. Wassanaar was chosen for the Certificate of Merit in Williams Lake.

The Two Recipients of the Williams Lake Certificate of Merit

Dr. Wassanaar was given the Certificate of Merit for his international work that has brought attention to the dental community of Williams Lake. The second awardee was a young wrestling champion named Tyleen Scaiano. Both Dr. Wassanaar and Ms. Scaiano were given the awards at the regular city council meeting on Tuesday, June 6.

Dr. Wassanaar’s International Accomplishments

The main reason that Mayor Walt Cobb presented Dr. Wassanaar with a Certificate of Merit was for his advanced work in implant dentistry. By becoming a renowned dental implant surgeon based out of Williams Lake, Rudy Wassanaar has drawn attention to the city. This led the way for other dental professionals to visit Williams Lake, and to consider the city a leading center for implantology.

Dr. Rudy Wassanaar Responds to His Certificate of Merit Award

As a longtime citizen of the city of Williams Lake, Dr. Wassanaar was appreciative of the chance to be recognized by the community. This was his response to receiving the Certificate of Merit:

“I’ve lived here and worked for 30 years and worked hard always to do a better job. For the last few years, I’ve been getting international attention with what I’ve been doing with implant dentistry so I’m hoping it will attract more professionals to Williams Lake, more people that look for certain services, be comfortable living here and moving here, and that applies to every small town in Canada.”

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

Greetings to patients and friends of Williams Lake Smiles!

June is here and hopefully, more summer weather is headed our way!

We are feeling excited and optimistic about the months to come as it appears that there is some positive easing of restrictions in British Columbia. Our team hopes this means that you will be able to slowly begin to see loved ones and move around a little bit more. Good news for us all!

In our office, your health and safety is still our utmost concern so we would like to update you and review our current protocols.

We are happy to be able to move from our online covid pre-screening forms to a verbal questionnaire. This means that you will no longer be required to do the online covid form before every appointment.
For the continued health and safety of all, we ask that you do not attend our office if you feel unwell at all or have traveled outside of the country within the past 14 days. We will ask you covid screening questions on the phone, at the time of scheduling appointments, and then again at the time of your arrival in our office. Mask wear is still mandatory for anyone entering our office. Your temperature will still be taken, shoe coverings provided and we will have you use hand sanitizer upon check-in at the door.

We will still be doing all we can to limit the amount of people in the office at one time and who you come into contact with while you are here.
We ask that you do not arrive too far ahead or drop off family members early for scheduled appointments. If our waiting room is full, we may ask you to remain in your vehicle and we can call you in as soon as we are ready. Please do not bring any extra people with you into the office. No spouses, children or siblings can accompany you to your appointment in the office.
We will continue with all other enhanced safety protocols to ensure that the health of our patients and staff team are our first priority and allow us to continue to provide you with our full range of exceptional dental care.

The Williams Lake Smiles team thanks to our amazing patients and friends for their ongoing patience and support through these unprecedented times of the past year and moving forward.
We appreciate your trust in us to help you be the healthiest you can be!

Please contact us with any questions or to schedule any of your dental needs.

Sincerely,

Dr. Rudy Wassenaar and the team at Williams Lake Smiles
