All dental appointments in Newfoundland and Labrador are cancelled effective immediately, unless it is an emergency.

Paul O’Brien, the provincial dental board’s registrar, sent a letter to dental clinics Monday afternoon telling them it was time to shut the doors to regular patients.

“Starting March 17, 2020, for a period of 14 days, dental clinics should manage emergency care due to an infection, acute pain, bleeding or trauma by asking the patient to contact their dentist by telephone to have emergencies evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine the best way to safely provide care,” the letter reads.
