Back to work

To our valued patients:


Life has been anything but normal this spring and we sincerely hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to inform you that we are now able to once again provide dental care for you and your family starting in August. The Ministry of Health has lifted the restrictions placed back in March. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety. 


Our office has always followed strict infection control standards and in order to keep us all protected during this pandemic and in the future, we have updated our protocols. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different. 


•        We will ask some screening questions before your appointment and you’ll be asked those same questions again                   when you’re in the office. 


•        You may be asked to wait outside our office or in your car and call us when you arrive and then wait for a call back to           let you know when you can enter the office. 


•        We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the clinic. There are more dispensers around the           office for you to use as needed.


•        Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or children’s toys since those items are difficult to fully disinfect. 


•        Appointments will be spaced out to allow for physical distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility               for scheduling your appointment, but it will also reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one                   time. 


•        You may be surprised that we’re wearing more protective gear – such as masks, face shields, gowns – than we                       normally do during your visit. 


Rest assured, all these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.


We look forward to seeing you again. If you have any questions, please let us know. To make an appointment, call our office at 705-855-3200 or email us at drwitzu@gmail.com  


Thank you for patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and look forward to welcoming you back!

Oral Sedation with Our Chelmsford Dentist: Skip the Anxiety
— Not Your Appointment!

At Chelmsford Family Dentistry, we understand that many patients face various levels of anxiety during dental procedures. Whether you’re undergoing an extensive treatment, surgery, or are just prone to anxiety during regular checkups, we can offer effective oral sedation techniques and careful dental techniques to make you more comfortable.

Oral sedation works well for most patients and offers advantages and disadvantages over other sedation methods. For example, it is easy to administer; you simply swallow a small pill. However, you will need to have someone drive you to and from your dental appointment.

Oral sedatives do not provide pain relief, so local anesthetics are used to numb sensation in the affected area. Usually patients are so relaxed and comfortable from the oral sedation that they barely notice when the local anesthetic is administered. Chelmsford Family Dentistry has access to various sedation techniques. We can make arrangements for I.V. sedation and general anesthesia when required.

Our goal is to make you feel as at ease as possible and most of our patients experience great results so that over time they often do not wish to take the sedative any longer. They feel no pain. They are at ease during their dental appointment and often find that they do not need the sedation forever! They elect to stop the medication because their fear is no longer present. Our aim is to make your appointment as comfortable as possible for you so that your perception of dentistry becomes a more positive experience.

For more information about dental sedation or to schedule an appointment at our office, please call Chelmsford Family Dentistry.
