On April 30, the Alberta Government announced that many healthcare practitioners could begin to treat patients again after months of office closures due to the pandemic. But are all practitioners able to open their doors, and what are their concerns? We talk to Dr. Paul Major, DDS ‘88, about how his orthodontic practice has been impacted by the pandemic and how he feels about returning to work. Brace yourself for a frank discussion about the risks and benefits of lifting pandemic restrictions as we drill down on the tough questions healthcare practitioners must ask themselves before treating patients!
