RCDSO Update - March 25, 2020 (COVID-19)
The Government of Ontario yesterday released a “List of Essential Workplaces”.
The list states explicitly that essential services include: “Health care professionals providing emergency care including dentists, optometrists and physio-therapists.”
This aligns with the strong recommendation that the College continues to provide to all dentists in Ontario, that all non-essential and elective dental services are suspended immediately. Emergency treatment should continue.
If you require more information on what constitutes an emergency, you may find it here.
For the safety of our staff and the public, the RCDSO offices in Toronto are now closed. Some College operations may be temporarily unavailable as a result. We ask that if you need to send information and documents to the College that you do so electronically; sending material on paper will result in delayed response and processing times.
