The Comox Denture Clinic is happy to announce that we will be re-opening on June 2nd. Clinic owner, Jan Lefeber, made the decision to close our doors several days before BC declared a state of emergency and over a week before Denturists were ordered to limit patient interactions to emergency situations only. His top priority was patient safety and with the rapidly changing situation he decided the right thing to do was close. Luckily, in this day and age, we were still able to keep in touch with our patients via phone and email during our closure. Many of our patients fall within categories that are the most vulnerable to Covid-19 and we are taking our re-opening very seriously. We want you to feel safe coming in to the clinic.
As we move forward, things in the clinic will look a little bit different than they used to. At this time, we are spacing out appointments in an appropriate manner that ensures that no more than one patient is in the clinic at a time. We are working diligently to keep our once busy waiting area empty. Rest assured that we are following all of the recently issued guidelines on personal protective equipment and social distancing. We are keeping up to date with all of the recommendations from the BC Centre for Disease Control, The College of Denturists of BC, the office of the Provincial Health Officer, WorkSafe BC and The Association of Denturists of BC.
We know that this is a stressful time for many people and we want to assure you that the health of our patients is of the utmost importance to us. We are doing our best to move forward in a manner that is safe for all of our patients and also for our staff. If you have any denture related questions or issues please do not hesitate to call or email us.
