Winnipeg Dental Centre Urging Patients To Resume Their Regular Check-ups Following COVID Pandemic

WINNIPEG, Canada – Markham Dental Centre, one of the largest and most successful dental offices in Winnipeg, is urging its patients to book their regular check-ups as government-imposed pandemic restrictions start to ease. 2020 was a challenging year due to the pandemic, and many dentists were forced to close with the exception of emergencies for the majority of the year. 


With restrictions beginning to be more relaxed, dentists are now able to offer standard treatments such as check-ups and cosmetic procedures. Unfortunately, many patients got out of the habit of visiting their dentist every six months for a check-up, and the team at Markham Dental Centre is worried that this may be creating problems for the future. 


“Visiting the dentist is an essential part of maintaining your dental health, but it is also a habit that is easy to get out of,” said Dr. Leon Stein. “ Unfortunately, with the various restrictions caused by the pandemic, people have not been allowed to visit the dentist for a check-up, and we are worried that many patients will not return until they have a problem. At this point, a dentist is forced to repair damage or issues that have already occurred rather than trying to prevent those issues from occurring in the first place. We are advising everyone to book in for their six-monthly check-up as quickly as possible so that we can help restore their oral health.” 


Markham Dental Centre was founded over 30 years ago by Dr. Leon Stein. Their office provides the highest quality of oral care for all patients. They stand by their work and always take the extra step to ensure everyone leaves satisfied. They work very closely with all types of oral health specialists in Manitoba and around Canada. Their policy is that they only commence any treatment if they feel they can do the 100% best job for their patient.
