Seeing a dentist during Covid-19

‘Non-essential’ dental appointments were suspended after Ontario declared a province-wide emergency to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are supporting that guidance and are committed to keeping our staff and patients safe in these trying times. However, emergency dentistry at select Dawson Dental locations remains available for those who require it.

 If you have any dental or oral concerns, reach out to us. We are available over the phone, via email, and via video conferencing to answer your questions and guide you through any dental issues you are facing.

If you or someone you know has a dental emergency, call us at 1-855-389-0586 or call one of our offices listed below that are accepting emergency appointments.
