Tips for Buying Exercise Equipment

When daily trips to the gym aren’t possible or gym memberships seem a little too expensive, home exercise equipment might seem like a good alternative. But before you spring for new equipment, make sure you’re not buying the fitness fiction of quick, easy results.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, in keeping with our priority to maintain the absolute safety of our staff, patients, and parents, and with recommendations from our regulatory body (the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario), we have decided to postpone all non-essential office visits. As such, all previously scheduled appointments, until further notice, are hereby cancelled.

The announcement by the RCDSO to immediately stop all non-essential and elective dental procedures was made on March 15, 2020, with the ultimate goal to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This closure is expected to last at least until April 1st, and possibly longer.

The dental profession is highly regulated when it comes to cross-contamination and infection control and we always operate in accordance with all regulations with that respect. However, dentists and dental assistants/hygienists are very likely to be vulnerable to this particular virus, as we
