Bonding Post Operation Information

Bonded composite resin restorations are the most conservative option available in modern dentistry today. They last a long time and look very natural.

There are no metals involved and since the filling is “welded” to your tooth by a special light source, the expectation is that the area will be problem-free for many years to come.

Due to the extensive finishing and polishing procedures that are used, there might have been some irritation caused to the gums surrounding the teeth. This should heal within a day or two without any lasting effects.

To properly adjust your bite we used a fine ribbon to identify any “high” spots. Due to the fact that we used anesthetic today the way you were biting down might have changed somewhat. If that was the case, we might have overlooked some of these “high” spots.

After the freezing wears off, check the way your bite feels. If it feels uneven or uncomfortable in any other way, please do let us know.

If you have any questions feel free to ask any of my staff or me. For additional information, please further explore this website.

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.

Our first TV interview has enjoyed 860,000 views with world-wide sharing. We would love to hear your feedback.

We look forward to seeing you in our office soon.


Dr Rudy Wassenaar

And all the Williams Lake Smiles team
