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.    We are pleased to announce that our office will be open as of  May 20th, 2020.  At the direction of the B.C. Minister of Health and the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. we have now entered phase 2 of the province's pandemic response strategy.  Our office will be re-opening for urgent and emergent in person care and will be expanding to elective treatment only when provincial guidelines allow.  I know that we are all working hard toward our common goal of bringing our communities back to a state of health and normality.   A slow and gradual return to normal activity and work flow is key to achieving this goal.  To this end you will notice some changes within the office to allow for social distancing and maintaining a safe clinical environment for you, our staff and the community at large.  We appreciate your patience as we navigate our clinic protocols through this ever changing situation.  


The following  public safety measures outlined below are still recommended:

- 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 positive and support your community, our essential workers, and our frontline health care providers 


If you have an urgent or emergent dental issue please contact the clinic at 250-756-9232 or via email:  northridge@shawbiz.ca

Dr. Layton can also be contacted at 250-616-8722 outside of cinic hours.

As this is an ever evolving situation we will resume elective dental treatment as soon as possible.  We will be monitoring directives from the Minister of Health and the College of Dental Surgeons.

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!
