Dear patient families,
Many of you may have already heard that the Alberta Dental Association and College has issued a mandatory suspension of all non-emergency dental treatment and services.

Effective today we have cancelled all appointments until further notice.  We will be contacting you to re-schedule these appointments once we have information about when we can re-open. 
In the meantime, I am available for emergency treatment such as trauma, significant infection, or prolonged bleeding or pain.  If you are unsure if your child’s situation qualifies as an emergency, feel free to reach out to me by phone and we can discuss.
I will continue to follow the AHS screening directions for all emergency treatment performed in my practice. If you answer yes to any of the screening questions, please call me and we can create a plan of action.
Please, do not go to the hospital for dental emergencies. Every dental practice in Alberta is closed. The hospitals are not equipped to deal with dental emergencies from every practice. My patients are my responsibility and I will take care of you.
I cannot reiterate enough, please call or text me with any questions you have regarding dental emergencies. 

It is my job to give you the most up-to-date and accurate information. 

Yours toothfully,
Dr. Kari Badwi
