Welcome to Jasper Place Orthodontics!
We provide orthodontic care for children, adolescents, and adults in and around the Edmonton, Alberta area. Dr. James Mergaert and his staff offer a wide range of treatment options and will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that is best suited for your orthodontic needs and lifestyle.
As many of you have heard, the Government of Alberta has planned to gradually reopen healthcare services, including dental offices, starting on May 4th. Following that date, we are able to resume orthodontic treatment as long as we follow the guidelines of our governing body, the Alberta Dental Association & College (ADA&C). The ADA&C is, and has been, busy doing their best to come up with appropriate guidelines to ensure the safety of our patients and dental team. They plan to release these guidelines to us on Monday, May 4th.
These guidelines will likely involve significant changes to accommodate physical distancing and proper PPE. There may be a reduction of patients we can see per day and we may have restrictions on when certain procedures can be done during the day. In the interest of maintaining patient safety and quality of care, along with staff safety, we anticipate it could be mid-May before we can source proper PPE, implement new guidelines, and begin seeing patients.
Dr. Ng and Dr. Mergaert have been keeping an extremely detailed record of all cancelled appointments. When we have more information, we will start the process of scheduling patients by calling you.
We kindly ask that you please do not phone or email to schedule your appointment. Our team will be very, very busy getting organized and booking patients – every phone call or email to return will keep them from getting our patients booked as fast as we can.
We truly appreciate your understanding and patience during this trying time. We miss you all and are anxious to get back in the office so we can take care of you.
We will continue to post updates as we progress. We wish you and your family the best of health and safety.
See you soon,
Dr. Nathan Ng, Dr. Jim Mergaert, and the entire team at Jasper Place Orthodontics
