Emergency Dental Procedures Limited to Approved Clinics in Nova Scotia

The places where you can get emergency dental work done will be more limited in Nova Scotia as of today.

The Provincial Dental Board of Nova Scotia, which regulates the profession, introduced a new protocol Tuesday that will restrict those procedures to particular locations because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

As a result, dentists who want to provide emergency services must apply to the dental board for approval.

As of Wednesday, only three dental emergency clinics were listed on the board’s site, all in Halifax: the Dalhousie faculty of dentistry, the oral and maxillofacial surgery clinic at the Victoria General Hospital and the department of pediatric dentistry at the IWK Health Centre.
