Dear Northridge family,
To our patients and the community at large we at Northridge dental hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and weathering these difficult times well. At the direction of the B.C. Minister of Health and the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C., all dental offices in the province have closed their practices to non-essential and elective dental services. In the effort to control community spread of covid-19 the province is taking strong measures to ensure public safety and asking individuals and businesses to do their part in containing the spread of covid-19. I know that we are all working hard toward our common goal of bringing our communities back to a state of health and normality. The sacrifices we make now and in the near future will be essential in the effort to save lives. By following the public safety measures outlined below we will stem the tide of infection and enable our brave, frontline medical health professionals to continue the fight against covid-19.
- wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 secs frequently
- avoid touching your face (eyes, ears, and nose)
- self isolate if you feel ill and call 811 for direction
- Practice social distancing (especially around our most vulnerable)
- stay at home and do not go out except for necessities
- stay positive and support your community, our essential workers, and our frontline health care providers
In order to do our part Northridge dental is currently closed for all non-essential dental treatment. Dr. Layton will, however, be available for all emergent issues and can be contacted directly at 250-616-8722.
As this is an ever evolving situation our planned re-opening is uncertain. We will be monitoring directives from the Minister of Health and re-open as soon as it is safe to do so.
By coming together as a community and caring about the well being of all we will overcome this global crisis and return to our normal lives in due course.
Be vigilant, stay happy and be well!
