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.”

Covid-19 (Corona) Virus

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

We hope this finds all our patients and friends healthy and well as summer is supposed to be arriving! Fingers crossed that we will see some sunshine in the Cariboo soon!

Our clinic staff have been working hard through this "new normal" of COVID-19 and ensuring that our clinic is exceeding the regulations to create the most safe and comfortable environment for all our patients. In the field of dentistry, we have always been experts in infection control. Now we are establishing a modified workflow to go above and beyond in this endeavor.

We are starting to resume some scheduling of more routine procedures as well as emergency care at this time. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about our current protocols or would like to schedule care.

Please respect our measures we are taking to ensure physical distancing within our office. This includes completing the COVID-19 prescreening form that is emailed to you before each appointment. We are also continuing to limit our waiting room to one person at a time and having patients complete payments and scheduling in their treatment room before exiting through the side door. This allows us to prevent interaction between patients whenever possible.

You may also find that we are slightly less flexible in our available appointment times for now as we are managing these new measures. We need to consider the amount of patients within our clinic at any time as well as stagger our patient entry and exit times.

Please be patient and kind as we all adjust to this protocol that is in place for the safety of all of us.

Take a few minutes to watch and share our latest instalment of Dr Wassenaar's appearance on the television program "The Wellness Hour". This interview outlines a lot of what we are doing to make sure that our patients have the utmost confidence and comfort in visiting Williams Lake Smiles at all times.
