May 19, 2020 To our current and future patients:
In accordance with the recommendations of the Health Officer, WorkSafe BC and the College of Dental Surgeons we are REOPENING all Sleep Better Live Better offices for NECESSARY IN OFFICE APPOINTMENTS to help patients continue and begin their Oral Appliance Therapy.
This reopening is being done in a manner that follows or exceeds all Public Health Officer, Worksafe BC and College of Dental Surgeons recommendations. We have added to our already in place Universal precautions, disinfection and sterilization PLEXIGLASS, AIR PURIFICATION, FACE SHIELDS, UV APPLIANCE STERILIZATION and many other measures.
When booking an in-office appointment you will be screened with a questionnaire and these questions will be reasked when you arrive.
ALL Seating and Appointments will comply or exceed 2-meter distance spacing whenever possible. WE ASK YOU TO ARRIVE ON TIME BUT NO EARLIER THAN 10 minutes prior to your appointment time to ensure we minimize any possible contact you have with other patients.
Having our patients attend in-office appointments is necessary for some appointments such as records and examination as well as appliance adjustments for comfort and fit but in the name of maintaining social distancing as much as possible we will be maintaining TELEMEDICINE for all appointments were this is possible including New Patient Initial Consults, Routine Followup appointments not requiring adjustments for fit and comfort and many of the appliance delivery appointments. We have found Telemedicine to be a valuable tool for patient care while maintaining social distancing and it will remain part of our office thus limiting many patients’ need to leave their home or workplace for an appointment.
IF YOU HAVE AN URGENT CONCERN regarding your oral appliance arrangements please contact us by phone or email and we can arrange an in-office appointment if necessary.
ALL NEW PATIENTS can also book their own Initial Consultation on our website www.Sleepbetterlivebetter.ca

Stay healthy and safe. Follow all recommendations for social distancing as recommended by the Health Officer . We all depend on each other to continue to manage this pandemic. Your health and safety are of our utmost concern.
Be Kind, Be Calm and Stay Safe and Now
Fewer Faces Larger Spaces.
