COVID-19 Updates and In-Office Procedures
As regulated health professionals, Registered Denturists are required to review and follow the directives and guidance from the Ministry of Health, Public Health Ontario, the Chief Medical Officer of Health, and other authoritative bodies regarding practices during COVID-19. In addition, Registered Denturists are expected to prioritize the safety of their patients, staff, colleagues, and others visiting their practice. Information surrounding COVID-19 is rapidly changing and evolving and so we encourage you to check back on this page regularly.
Effective immediately, we will be implementing patient screening for COVID-19 using the Patient Screening Form template adapted from the Ministry of Health’s Patient Screening Guidance Document, shown below.
If the response is Yes to any of the above questions, the person has screened Positive. You will be instructed to call your primary care provider or Telehealth Ontario for further instructions. Telehealth Ontario: 1-866-797-0000

Travel across provincial borders by Registered Denturists, clinic staff, patients, persons accompanying patients or individuals providing service or maintenance at a Denture Clinic as they travel to or from a Denture Clinic is not viewed as “travelling outside of Ontario in the past 14 days” for the purposes of screening for suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.
