Vicson Leung

Vicson Leung R.D.T. Denturist

Registered Dental Technician (RDT, Denturist)

Vicson Leung has been providing quality denturist care in Vancouver for over 10 years. He is the in-house denturist and denture professional at the Vancouver Centre for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. He graduated from the VCC(Vancouver Community College) Denturist program back in 2006 and later joined Dr. Peter Balogh’s team of dental professionals in 2009. In addition to providing denture services for the patients at VCCID, he also owns and operates a denture clinic in Vancouver’s Chinatown district.

Vicson expressed an interest in dentistry from a young age. His father owned a dental lab and when he asked his son to help with chores, he saw his son was an enthusiastic learner. His dad started teaching him at a young age how removable dental prosthetics were fabricated. After working with his Dad for several years, he enrolled in a denturist program. No doubt this hands-on early training as well as his formal training at VCC Denturist program has helped him develop excellent clinical skills and to be able to provide some of the best fitting dentures possible.

In his spare time, he can be found with his children enjoying the local parks. He loves to cook and try new types of cuisine. He stays active by playing volleyball and working out. Vic brings an intense passion and years of experience to the Vancouver Centre for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry.

Covid Phase II:  Dental offices reopening

 

We are “OPEN”

 

UPDATE May 22 2020

 

Dear patients:

 

The BC provincial health officer has given dental offices in BC the green light to reopen under “Phase II” regulations.  These regulations are dictated by WorksafeBC, the provicnical licencing body, the ongoing progression or diminishing of viral cases and current understanding of transmission, particularly in the dental office setting. 

 

The  greatest risk/concern re further spread of this virus is with those that are currently ill or who may have come into contact with someone who has been ill within the past 14 days. In the dental clinic the  concern is the generation of any aerosols that may contain virus particles.

 

Therefore when booking appointments  we will ask a series of questions to determine your risk. For those at risk of being Covid positive, treatment will be deferred until  the 14 day risk of transmission has passed. If treatment is of an urgent nature, we have  additional safety measures in place to provide emergency care, assuming it will not create a greater health risk. Alternatively referrals to a hospital may be  recommended for anyone with severe health risks who cannot be treated in office.

 

For those without contact or risk of Covid, we will be able to book your appointments. Upon arrival to the office you are required to complete a COVID screening  and consent form prior to being seen in the clinic area. The clinical staff will also do an assessment to determine if there is any risk. 

 

Similarly our staff will also be assessed daily to ensure none are ill or have had contact with a potential case of COVID within the previous 14 days.

 

We are required to modify our scheduling to allow for continued distancing and other measures to minimize potential spread. Therefore we anticipate a slightly longer waiting period for available appointments until this Phase II is complete.

 

Our primary concern is your overall health, consequently we have incorporated  additional protocols and precautions during this time to ensure the safety of patients as well as staff from this viral infection.  It involves additional barrier protection, modifying how procedures are done to avoid generating aerosols and sterilization protocols to decontaminate any surfaces that may have come in contact with aerosols. 

 

The good news is that over the past 50+ years the dental industry has learned to manage and control in-office transmission of many viruses, bacteria and outbreaks of  illnesses, and we anticipate these same protocols  will continue to protect yourselves as well as the staff. As we move through Phase II and  see this pandemic lose its “foothold” we expect we will slowly return to a more normal routine and scheduling of appointments. 

 

Of course your dental health is also paramount and therefore finding appointments for your care is also essential. Rest assured that we will be following up and contacting anyone who has missed appointments and those that are currently booked in the weeks ahead. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr Peter Balogh and all of us at VCCID
