Message from Dr. Tam

Summer is here! Hopefully patios will open soon and we can finally get our haircuts.

It has been over one year since we reopened our clinic after the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have worked diligently to ensure your safety: 1) instituting new screening and operational protocols and 2) installing new infrastructure—vapour barriers and HEPA filters. I am happy say that thus far we have operated without a single case of COVID-risk exposure. My staff and I have already received our first doses of COVID-19 vaccine. We are all set to get our second doses within the month of June. This is exciting news.

Dental health continues to be an important part of our overall health. A peer review study showed that inflammation is not only a symptom of COVID-19, but that it can also be a symptom of periodontal or gum disease. Patients with gum disease were at least three times more likely to experience severe COVID‐19 outcomes, including death, ICU admission, and the need for assisted ventilation. Additionally, COVID-19 patients with periodontitis showed increased levels of biomarkers similar to those with COVID-19 complications. We should not neglect our oral and gum health.

I will close by sharing this catchy slogan from the Ontario Dental Association.

Mask up, lather up, back up, and sleeve up. We can save lives together.

I wish you all a safe, healthy, and happy summer and I hope to see you soon.
