An important message from PacificWest Dental about COVID-19 (Corona Virus)

Important COVID-19 Update

January 4th, 2021

Happy New Year!

We hope that everyone had a safe and joyful Christmas holiday. Over the holidays, we’ve seen a big spike in the Covid-19 case numbers as the new Omicron variant proved to be highly transmittable. The good news is that the number of people requiring hospitalization remains low. However, we want to do our part to keep our patients and staff safe, and to avoid further burdening our health care system.

We have implemented protocols above and beyond the requirements that are mandated by the Provincial Health Office and the College of Dental Surgeons of BC. You should receive e-mail updates about them.  With these protocols in place, we expect there will be an extremely low risk of transmitting and contracting COVID-19 or any infectious diseases at our dental clinic. Please take some time to read through the protocols carefully, we need your help with it! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. 

Thank you again for your patience and support during this challenging time. Thanks to your cooperation, we have not had any case of transmission of Covid-19 in our offices since we reopened in May 2020. Let’s keep it that way! We look forward to meeting you in person soon!

Important COVID-19 Update

July 1, 2021

Hi Everyone,

Summer is here and we hope everybody is enjoying the sunshine and getting their vitamin D. We are happy to report that on July 1, 2021, the province moved into Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, with a number of restrictions being lifted. Following the latest guideline from BCDA, we are also changing our protocol in our office. Here are the changes that you can expect when you come into our office next time:

  • As of July 1, 2021, masks are no longer required for patients and non-clinical staff. However, masks are recommended for those 12 years and older who have not been fully vaccinated.
  • Temperature check is no longer required.
  • We will still ask you to complete the screening form before coming into the office, but it is no longer mandatory.
    What we will continue to do is the following:
  • Be diligent with our sterilization and hygiene practice to keep the office clean.
  • Limit the number of people in the waiting area whenever we can.
  • Welcome you with a big smile whenever you come in :)

Thank you again for your patience and support during the past year. It was a challenging time but we did it! Please stay safe and stay well. We look forward to meeting you in person soon!

Dear all
Dr. Lun Wang and Dr. Kevin Lee hope everybody is doing well! It had been a strange 7 weeks as we all had to make some changes and sacrifices to slow down the spread of the coronavirus. Thank you for your patience throughout this time. We are now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as the BC Provincial government announced the plan to reopen BC in Mid-May!
We have been working hard during this time in our preparation to reopen the clinic; from collecting the PPE, to coming up with new protocol on how we see patients. The health and safety of our staff and our patients is our top priority, and we will not be rushed to open unless we are absolutely certain that we can achieve this.
We will be booking patients starting on June 2nd. We will be scheduling patients back in the same order as their last scheduled appointment, with priority given to patients who have current discomfort and those with active fixed appliance.
Due to the high volume of need, we may not be able to see you right away. We kindly ask you to be patient still during this time; we will be contacting you as soon as we can! Please check your emails from our office for your appointment time which will be booked for you in case we are not able to connect with you over the phone.
In the meantime, if you have any emergency causing pain or bleeding, please call us immediately for us to see you.
Thank you again for your patience and support during this challenging time. Please stay safe and stay well. We look forward to meeting you in person soon!

Furthermore, we are excited to announce that we now offer virtual appointments! This allows us to see your teeth and meet with you virtually to answer your questions. Click here to book for a virtual appointment with Dr. Wang or Dr. Lee!
