The Vernon Dental Association wants people to know that dentists are still available for emergencies due to the closures of COVID-19.
Dr. Paula Winsor-Lee said dentists in Vernon and the region are “committed to helping our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic
“Due to the necessary restrictions imposed by the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia, we can currently only treat patients in emergency and essential care. If you have a dental emergency or are suffering, please call your usual dental office. “
Winsor-Lee said that all dentists have instructions on how to contact them or on duty dentist when people call their office.
“Please don’t go to the hospital with a dental emergency because frontline workers are busy with the Covid 19 pandemic,” she said.
