Dental care for Nunavummiut still on hold – Nunatsiaq News
“We’re pretty limited in what we can provide”
Nunavummiut seeking non-emergency dental care will have to continue waiting as plans to resume services are still on hold.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nunavut’s oral health division suspended all dental services across the territory in mid-March.
“We followed suit with the other jurisdictions in the country who all were doing the same thing pretty much at the same time,” said Dr. Ron Kelly, the territory’s chief dental officer.
Shortly after that, clinics in Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet and Cambridge Bay were opened and staffed with a dentist and an assistant who would handle dental emergencies in those communities, as well as in each of their respective regions.
