Canadian dental offices that closed their doors during the initial shutdown of businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic now worry the equipment needed to conduct their business is in short supply as they begin reopening.

In Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, dental offices were allowed to reopen on May 4, while dentists in British Columbia are permitted to resume operations mid-May.

In Atlantic Canada, dental offices in New Brunswick will reopen as part of their third stage, marked by three-to-four weeks without a second wave of COVID-19 cases. Dentists in Prince Edward Island will be allowed to conduct urgent in-office dental care as part of their third stage of reopening, expected on June 12. In Newfoundland and Labrador, dental operations are expected to open on June 8.
