Dear Neighbours, Patients, Family and Friends,
The Covid-19 situation has impacted every aspect of all our lives and deserves everyone's immediate attention. Please understand, this public health emergency is real and must be taken seriously. The health and safety of our patients, our team and our community is our highest priority. On March 16, 2020, our governing body, the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC), issued an urgent recommendation that all dental offices in British Columbia cease providing "elective and non-essential" dental care immediately. On Tuesday, March 17, we complied with that recommendation and our office is now temporarily closed for clinical care of this nature. We will return to normal operations as soon as we are able.
Emergency dental services are still available. For any dental emergency, please call or text Dr. Trevor Morhaliek directly at 250-575-8194.
All other dental-related inquiries or information regarding existing appointments can be sent via the normal avenues of email or telephone. We will be monitoring our messages regularly. We will do the best we can to keep our patients updated and provide helpful information as we receive it.
In the interest of community safety and for the safety of your dental team and other patients we ask that you refrain from visiting our office for any reason, if you:
- have a fever
- have cold/flu-like respiratory symptoms
- have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days
- have been in close contact/proximity to someone known to have tested
positive to Covid-19 OR who may likely have contracted Covid-19
Our team follows the most current and proven infection control guidelines of the CDSBC. We will continue to employ the safest infection control standards and clinical protocols, as always.
We are committed to your well being and thank you for your continued support. We consider each of you to be a part of our dental family, so take care of yourselves and each other. Follow social distancing directives and the advice of your physician. More information is provided at this link: https://www.bcdental.org/bcda-statement-coronavirus/
Thank you and Sincerely,
Dr. Trevor Morhaliek and the Amazing SAS Team
