We are OPEN during the THIRD lockdown and stay at home order. Dentists are essential!

Another Shut Down

As we face yet ANOTHER stay at home order during yet another shutdown, Amherstburg Dental remains open to serve all your dental needs including emergency and elective dental services like cleanings. We have all been vaccinated and we screen for all COVID cases. We DO NOT treat patients suspect of being exposed to COVID and use the highest standard for PPE and infection protocol as demanded by our profession. Please DO NOT ignore your oral health and please go to the dentist. We are here to help you. Call Amherstburg Dental at 519 736-4073. Thanks Dr. Z

We are OPEN even during the “Lockdown”


DON'T WAIT! to see the dentist. Just a reminder that even during "LOCKDOWN" we ARE OPEN! Dental offices are considered essential services. So even though our area have been declared "grey" and in "lockdown" by public health advisors for at least 28 days, Dentists are among health care providers that CAN STAY OPEN using the current protocols; in effect mandated by the governing body of our profession. So IT IS SAFE to go to the dentist as I stated in several previous posts. We will NOT BE CANCELLING procedures and we ARE ABLE to perform all procedures until otherwise instructed. The most important tool we have to fight COVID is patient screening. We DO NOT treat COVID positive patients in our office or patients who are suspect of coming into contact with COVID. We were safe before COVID and continue to be even safer during the ongoing pandemic. If you are waiting "until this is over", you're going to be waiting years. Please DO NOT neglect your teeth. Feel free to call Amherstburg Dental if you need our help at 519 736-4073.

It is SAFE to go to the dentist.

We have always used the best PPE protocol and infection control techniques in our dental office as mandated by our profession even before this pandemic. Since we returned to practice in June, we have used a heightened protocol for the safety of our staff, our office, and our patients. However, the most important tool we have to fight COVID is patient screening. We DO NOT treat COVID positive patients in our office or patients who are suspect of coming into contact with COVID.

Patients are screened twice by our staff before they are allowed to enter our building, screened again by our staff upon arrival and screened again by their attending dentist before they even enter any treatment area. We screen our staff and dentists twice daily and monitor our health throughout the day. It is SAFE to go to the dentist. Please DO NOT neglect your oral health. We are continuing to provide ALL dental care including regular exams and cleanings. Call Amherstburg Dental at 519 736-4073 to schedule your appointment today.

Digital Doc IRIS Intra-Oral Camera is now at the NEW Amherstburg Dental

I am proud to introduce yet another wonderful tool now that we can use at the NEW Amherstburg Dental. It's called the Digital Doc IRIS Intra-Oral Digital Camera. I have found many uses for it. We can take pictures of your teeth for before and after purposes. Full face pictures for InvisAlign braces. Or highly detailed pictures of single teeth or surface on that one tooth. Then we can display it on both monitors to share our findings with the patient and come up with a more ac...curate plan of treatment. Such as the following case. The digital x-ray showed something was not right with the middle tooth. But only until we were able to take a closer picture of the tooth by itself and actually look inside the tooth in real-time with the Digital Doc IRIS camera, did we really discover how serious the problem was. A complete fracture!!! That's the dark line. Unfortunately the tooth could not be saved, but we saved this patient time, money, and aggravation trying to attempt to save an unfixable tooth. I love my new office more everyday and so do our patients!!!

NEW Diagnostic Tools for Painful Jaw Joints (TMJ – TMD)

Have your jaw joints been sore or painful? Another smart tool we have added to our office here at Amherstburg Dental is the ability to take a digital image of just your jaw joints in both an open and closed position. With the use of our NEW digital imaging system, we can evaluate even more in depth why your jaw is bothering you. The advantage here is being able to take this diagnostic image and evaluate it here in our office while you are here for your cleaning or other exam. Now with the available Sirona software measurement and analysis tools, we can immediately get a clearer picture of what is happening to your jaw joint and make recommendations for treatment right here in our office. Also, we can fabricate the correct type of nightguard that will work best for your specific jaw needs; should it become necessary. Yet another, very cool thing we can do with our new Sirona Orthophos machine!!! Call us at 519 736-4073 to make your appointment today!

Making Sinus Problems more easily visible at Amherstburg Dental

Here is another wonderful x-ray our NEW digital imaging system can take. We can now take a picture of your sinuses by themselves. This can help us in trying to figure out if your teeth are actually bothering you or if your sinuses are having a flare up and bothering your teeth instead. This is great help especially this time of year where the weather gets hot and allergies start to run rampant.  We can do this with our new Sirona Orthophos machine. Also Very Cool!
