Dr. Pirjo Friedman hasn’t travelled to see her dental clients in smaller N.W.T. communities since March when she was in Łutselk’e, N.W.T.

“We had two more patients to see but yet, we were not allowed to continue … Obviously I have worried about all of those patients,” said Freidman, a dentist with Adam Dental Clinic in Yellowknife.
