We hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy. These are difficult and unprecedented times for everyone. We wanted to keep you posted about what's happening at our office and stay connected to help you with some oral hygiene and general tips to make this difficult time pass a little smoother.
As you already know, our office is closed to non-emergency services as guided by our governing body. We will reschedule appointments as soon as we are able, and add hours in order to make up for the backlog as quickly as possible. Stay tuned, we will be sending more oral health tips to help keep your smile fresh and healthy while staying at home to help bridge the gap for those who have had to cancel or move hygiene appointments.
On a personal note, I have been spending my time at home to help flatten the curve. We try to make the best of this by keeping a regular routine while being mindful of public health recommendations. I too, like most of you, are relying more on the internet to get things done. I have been catching up on work and also attended an online seminar presented by the Seattle Study Club regarding COVID-19. My two kids are home from university and they are continuing their school requirements online.
Our family finally had some time to catch up on reading and decluttering the house. For breaks, there are a few Foosball games, attempts at karaoke and "dance off". I have learned to appreciate digital technology more. My kids have taught me how to "cast" videos onto the big screen so that I can watch old concert videos of some of my favourite musicians, such as The Beatles, Eagles, Elvis, Tom Jones and the like.
Again, we are all in this together and we will overcome! With efforts, this will hopefully pass sooner than later and may we all not take for granted our health and that of our loved ones and friends. Our prayers and thoughts are with everyone, especially the ones that have fallen ill with COVID-19 and that they may recover soon.
Stay safe everyone and we will see you soon once everything returns to normal,
