Announcement Regarding COVID-19
Posted: March 17, 2020
Dear Patients and Prospective Patients,
Following the recommendations of provincial and local health authorities regarding prevention of Covid-19 spread, we at Dr. Elston Wong Dentistry have decided to suspend all elective dental appointments until the first week of April. At that time, a reassessment will be made as to whether this closure needs to be prolonged or whether it can end.
These are important public health measures to heed, and it is important that everyone does their part in helping lower the rate of community infection of this virus. Granted, it is a never-before-seen world-wide effort, but considering the effects that we see of inadequate or late response, it is also essential that this be maintained until new infection numbers decrease and the pandemic is brought under control.
Please note that limited dental emergency treatment will be provided during this period as needed after first being screened by Dr. Wong. He can be reached on his cell at 705-733-0880 (voice messages only). Additionally, he is reachable by email at: [email protected]

If you suspect that you have been infected, please contact Public Health Officials at:
705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
We wish you all a safe and healthy journey through these unfamiliar times.
Dr. Elston Wong and Team
