Dear Appleby Dental Patients,
As of March 16th, 2020, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario has strongly recommended the suspension of elective and non-essential dental services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we know many of you have experienced a disruption in receiving your normal dental and hygiene treatments. We know this is a tremendous inconvenience, but it is a necessary measure to keep everyone safe during this time.
We wanted to reach out to let our valued patients know we are thinking of you during these challenging times. We miss you. We miss seeing your faces and your smiles. We miss hearing your stories and sharing a laugh. We miss having the privilege of being your oral healthcare providers.
We are also thinking of our medical colleagues working the front lines. We thank them for their service and for putting themselves in harm’s way to care for our loved ones and our community. We know these are difficult times, but we support you and the tremendous job you are doing. The best way to provide this support is to continue to do so from afar. We need to listen to our elected officials and medical professionals, practice safe social distancing and make smart decisions that are based on science. If we do these things, we will remain safe, save lives and soon we will be able to resume our normal, everyday activities. We are going to get through this together.
Looking ahead, we have been working hard to figure out what our “new normal” will be. Appleby Dental has always applied the highest standards of infection prevention and control. Staying true to this commitment, we have made several changes to ensure we can safely meet your dental needs. Facility upgrades, new equipment and updated protocols will all be in place to help prevent the spread of respiratory pathogens and provide a safe environment for you to receive your dentistry. The safety and well-being of our patients and staff has always been and will remain our top priority.
While we ride out this pandemic, we are still here for you should you require emergency or urgent dental care. Dental emergencies and urgent care may include: pain, infection, swelling, bleeding, trauma, broken or chipped teeth, problems with temporary restorations, wisdom tooth problems, tissue biopsies, problems with orthodontic appliances, wires or braces or dental treatment needed prior to a medical procedure If you are unsure if your situation qualifies as emergency or urgent, please give us a call. We are here to help. Dr. Hill can be reached at 905-317-5558 and Dr. Mytnowych can be reached at 905-483-6285.
If you had an appointment scheduled with us that was suspended due to the pandemic, we will be reaching out to have it rescheduled as soon as we are allowed by the government and our college to reopen.
As for all of us: doctors, hygienists, assistants and receptionists, we are doing very well. We are staying home, spending time with our families, investing in our professional development, practicing social distancing and staying connected remotely.
Thank you for your understanding and support. Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Dear Appleby Dental Patients,
The safety of our patients and staff has always been our top priority. As of this evening, new guidelines have been published by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) which state “The RCDSO strongly recommends that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended immediately. Emergency treatment should continue. The College will revisit this recommendation in the first week of April.”
Dr. Hill and Dr. Mytnowych have made the decision to follow this guideline and implement this as policy immediately and are suspending all non-essential and elective dental services until further notice. We will continue to manage dental emergencies which include:
If you have an urgent dental matter, or if you are unsure if your situation is classified as an emergency please contact our office at 905-331-7654. We can and will service both our existing patients and new patients in this capacity at this time.
During this time, we have implemented several measures to allow us to safely provide emergency treatment.
These measures include:
To assist us with our containment efforts, please do not report to the office if:
If any of these scenarios apply and you require emergency dental treatment, please contact our office by phone and we will provide you with further instructions on how to safely receive care.
If you have an upcoming appointment in the next two weeks for elective treatment, we will be contacting you shortly to reschedule. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our patients, staff, their families and the entire community to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
These are unprecedented times and we are making these decisions with everyone’s best interests in mind. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you but appreciate your patience and understanding.
Be safe, take care and we look forward to seeing you once things are back to normal!
Dr. Sherri Hill
