Metropolitan Dental—Now Open
To all of our valued patients of Metropolitan Dental:
Hello everyone! This is coming to all of you with good news! We have finally received official approval to head back to work. We have been closed for almost three months. Needless to say we are all quite excited to head back to Metropolitan Dental and to once again see all of you for your dental needs.
COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us, including the shut down of dentistry across the province. We understand that many of you have been forced to wait for your dental care and we deeply appreciate your understanding and patience while we were closed. Your health and well being continue to be our highest priority as we carefully prepare and update our practice procedures. Please be assured that we will be taking care of you, just as we will be taking care of our families and ourselves.
We know that our capacity of getting back to work will not be 100% initially, but we will be working hard to see all of you. We have opened our doors as of June 8th. We ask, unless you are experiencing an emergency, please wait for us to call you, instead of you calling the office. This will help to make our job of scheduling and re-scheduling patients easier. If you would like to email us to schedule or update an appointment click here.
There are some new protocols that have been put in place by the Minister of Health for your next dental appointment, so we will be emailing these out to you prior to your appointment. These new screening processes are important for everyone to follow, we thank you for your co-operation.
Once again, we thank you for your trust and patronage over the decades. Please remember as businesses continue to re-open, the DENTAL office is one of the cleanest and most sterile places that you will encounter. We have been working hard to ensure that commitment to you.
We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces again.
Dr. Barton Walters, and Dr. Andrew Kaplan
And the entire team at Metropolitan Dental
Thanks for dropping in to our on-line office! We created this website to give our current and prospective patients the opportunity to learn more about Metropolitan Dental and the wide variety of services we provide.
We’re here for one reason and one reason only: to help you achieve the best oral health and most beautiful smile possible. We’ll do everything we can to keep your teeth comfortable, functional, and attractive for the rest of your life—or create replacements that look and feel like the real thing.
For example, we can do porcelain crowns and onlays in a single appointment with our CEREC 3D system, and our KaVo Key 3 laser can be used for everything from reshaping gums to treating periodontal disease. These and other hi-tech tools—like our KöR Whitening system, Invisalign® invisible braces, VELscope oral cancer screening, digital x-rays, K7 muscular evaluation system, and intra-oral camera—ensure that our patients have some of the most leading-edge options open to them.
While the latest equipment and comfortable surroundings are vital to your experience, it’s our people who make the difference. Take a look at our staff bios and you’ll find that we choose our team members very carefully. That’s because we know that when people are really good at what they do and truly care about their patients, it shows.
It’s not science fiction. You can have invisible braces today. How many adults have resigned themselves to spending the rest of their lives with crooked or protruding teeth because they’re too shy to wear train-track braces? And how many would straighten them if they could do it without anyone else knowing? (more…)
The subconscious impact of a white smile is radiant health, happiness, warmth and invitation. Today brighter, lighter, whiter teeth have become a norm. Tooth whitening by bleaching is a successful, conservative, relatively inexpensive and safe alternative (more…)
