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!

silver fillings

Silver Amalgam Fillings from

Chelmsford Family Dentistry

Gold and silver amalgam fillings have been used by dentists for nearly two centuries, however in recent years some critics have argued that they are unsafe and should not be used because they may cause mercury poisoning or other problems and are damaging to the environment.

Safe and Effective

The FDI World Dental Federation, as well as dental associations and dental public health agencies around the world are of the opinion that silver amalgam fillings are safe and effective. Consumer Reports magazine has suggested that opponents of amalgam fillings are using pseudoscience to frighten patients into choosing more expensive treatment options.

Some of the advantages offered by silver amalgam fillings over resin cosmetic fillings are:

  • Durability– Amalgam fillings typically last twice as long as resin composite fillings.
  • Convenience– Amalgam fillings are easier to place than composite fillings. They are also much more tolerant of contamination caused by blood or saliva.
  • Price– Amalgam fillings typically cost 20% to 30% less than resin composite fillings.

We will be happy to address any questions or concerns you might have about amalgam dental fillings. Please contact our office for more information or to schedule a consultation appointment.
