Dear Patients and Friends of Deerwater,
We are excited to announce the wait is over and we are ready to see you again!
At Deerwater Dental Wellness, our priority has always been on Complete Health Dentistry – the
mouth is a gateway to your body. Gum disease (and other issues) in the mouth affects the body;
disease in the body affects the mouth. Our concern is the delay in your oral wellness care is
affecting not only your mouth health, but your overall body health. We also understand the
concerns for safety, not only for you, but for other patients and our team as well.
Covid-19 has given us an opportunity to enhance our Hygiene Recare Program to really be
effective in treating gum disease and decrease risks to other diseases in the body.
As this virus won’t be going away anytime soon, we want to help you and your loved ones strengthen your immunity and prevent disease! We’ve made it available to our patients who want to be on top of
their health: Saliva Testing and PerioProtect®.
The newest research shows that hydrogen peroxide is effective in killing viruses and other tiny, harmful bacteria in the mouth. It does not cause bacterial resistance. On the contrary, it creates an unfavourable environment for “bad” bacteria to grow but a favourable one, for the “good” bacteria to populate. Gums become healthier, thus decreasing the inflammation in the mouth and body. For our regular patients, PerioProtect® is simply a home care system where you wear custom-made, comfortable trays 1-2 times a day for 10-15 minutes. The hydrogen peroxide gel is refreshingly minty, plus has the added bonus of whitening your teeth! If you are concerned about gum disease, your body’s immunity or safety during an appointment, you should consider PerioProtect® and talk to us to see if it’s suitable for you.
Saliva testing is a very simple way to identify bacteria in the mouth that contribute to caries, gum disease and one’s increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, birth complications, some cancers and other systemic diseases. In addition, we can test for inherited genetic risk to create a personalized treatment plan. This test only takes a few minutes in the office.
Rest assured, the office has followed our governing body’s authoritative guidance, as well as going beyond to address issues of safety. We want you to know that you and your family can have peace and confidence in having your oral wellness care taken care of at Deerwater Dental Wellness.

To not further impact your health with the delayed care and to continue to be safe in the transition back from Covid -19, an appointment for Saliva Testing can be made immediately, as well as to evaluate your suitability for PerioProtect® tray therapy and other treatment to address harmful oral biofilm.
If you have already booked for a Recare Hygiene appointment, the nature of your appointment will not change but the approach may change to minimize aerosol and optimize safety while keeping you healthy. If you are already on tray therapy, your appointment approach will not be affected.
If you do not have an appointment book yet, please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you are concerned about caries, gums disease and/or harmful biofilm. We will make proper arrangements to ensure you are well taken care of as well.
We are here for you to answer any questions you have! Our goal is to help you look good, feel good, be healthy and pain-free! We thank you for your patience and commitment to your oral wellness and look forward to serving you very soon!
Dr. Isabella Wang and Entire Deerwater Team
