Guidelines for Emergency and Urgent Dental Care in Yukon

July 2, 2020
by Government of Yukon

Dentists and dental care professionals are at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 due to their occupation. In response to this risk, on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the Yukon government limited Yukon dental care to emergency dental procedures only.

On July 1, the Minister of Community Services ordered that dentists and dental care professionals now be allowed to undertake emergency, urgent and non-emergent dental care. These steps will allow the following professionals to restart regular services:

  • Orthodontists;
  • Denturists; and
  • Dental hygienists.
