Thank you for your ongoing support as we have closely monitored the coronavirus outbreak and the constantly evolving stream of information over recent days. As a support team to health care providers, we share in the increasing global concern about COVID-19 and we want you to know that we are taking the situation very seriously. Our commitment to the health and safety of the patients and team members of our partner offices is unwavering.
Until further notice, all Canadian Orthodontic Partners supported offices will be closed.
We believe that this temporary closure is the course of action that will best protect the health and safety of patients, team members, and their loved ones during the height of the COVID-19 crisis. Being true to our team’s values, we trust that this is absolutely the right decision for the communities we serve. A suspension of patient care is not ideal, and we have not taken this decision lightly. Given the rapid global spread of coronavirus, we feel that taking these measures is the right thing to do as we unite with our communities and country in the effort to “flatten the curve” for the good of our healthcare system.
As doctors and health professionals, we rely on information that is scientifically proven and medically backed and, accordingly, we are continuing to monitor the advice given by public health officials.
As COVID-19 continues to affect Canadians and people around the world, we want to let you know that we are doing everything we can to bring comfort to those around us during this stressful time. Our team members are considered family, and as such, we want to take care of them like we are taking care of our own. We are doing everything we can to minimize impact to our team members and their own families during this closure period.
We look forward to seeing clinics reopen, and continuing to support clinic teams in creating beautiful, healthy smiles for years to come.
