Covid-19 (Corona) Virus

Dear Patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the dental profession, our communities and our families. During this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 crisis and uncertainty, our patients of Williams Lake Smiles have remained our priority. Your safety, security and wellness are what matter the most.

For that reason, Williams Lake Smiles is now closed and will remain closed until we can ensure it is completely the right time to reopen. At this time we simply cannot treat patients for routine dental care in a manner that would allow us to maintain the adequate social distancing that is crucial to flattening the curve of the speed of this virus. We are severely limited by the critical worldwide shortage of the necessary Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) that is required to keep our patients, staff and families safe.

Any dental appointments you have scheduled with our clinic have been cancelled until such time that we can safely provide the care and protection that we have always been proud to offer to you. When we are able to reschedule, we will begin contacting our patients to resume your dental treatment.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call the Dental Emergency line at 1-866-918-8714.

Stay healthy and we all look forward to welcoming you back to Williams Lake Smiles very soon.

Sincerely,

Dr Rudy Wassenaar, Dr. Sophia Dahia and Staff

Williams Lake Smiles
