Find a Dentist
The College has recommended that all non-emergency dental services should be postponed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
What is a patient dental emergency during the pandemic?
In dentistry, an emergency could include an injury to the mouth and face, severe infection (such as an abscess or swelling), bleeding that continues for a long time or pain which cannot be managed by over-the-counter medication like Advil or Tylenol.
I think I have an emergency dental situation. What do I do?
If you think you have an emergency case, call your dentist. They will ask you for information about your situation and give you advice about next steps. If you need to visit the office, they will let you know if they can help or will direct you to another dentist.
Not all dentists have the safety equipment needed to guard against COVID-19. Dentists that are equipped to treat emergency cases are required to maintain all standards of infection, prevention and control set by the College and Public Health.
Do not go to a hospital emergency room for a dental problem at this time.
