By 1 Dental Unit Ottawa staff –
1 Dental Unit Det Ottawa will be moving the NDHQ(Pearkes) and the NDMC clinics to NDHQ (Carling) between 10 – 21 June 2019. After 14 June 2019, dental services will no longer be offered at NDHQ(Pearkes) and HCC (NDMC Alta Vista) dental clinics.
This move will be divided in phases to minimize the interruption of essential services for CAF patients. It is extremely important to note that the Montfort Clinic will remain fully operational during that transition time and beyond the NDHQ(Carling) move.
Patient distribution will be reviewed and adjusted to better serve members and try to limit commuting issues to dental appointments. In early June 2019, details will be published on 1 Dental Unit website under Det Ottawa for personnel to identify what clinic has been assigned to them after the move. For patients that are under regular/long term care with a dentist/dental specialist or hygienist, the schedule will be adjusted and you will be provided with more details directly by your provider as the moving day approaches.
There will be a transition period (17-21 June 2019) during which dental care, including sick parade, will be available at both the Montfort clinic and possibly the Carling location but with a reduced number of available providers. The NDHQ(Carling) Dental Clinic is expected to be fully operational on 24 June 2019.
More details on the actual opening and the services that will be provided at the Carling clinic will be available at the beginning of June 2019.
