Urban Smiles staff ‘want you back’ after closure in response to pandemic

A group of Victoria dentists and dental staff danced in the street Friday afternoon in a bid to get their patients ‘back.’

Staff from Broughton Street dental clinic Urban Smiles danced to the *NSYNC’s I Want You Back in a set of brightly-coloured scrubs sewn by one worker’s grandmother. The ’90s hit was chosen to demonstrate that the clinic ‘wants its patients back,’ now that some of B.C.’s COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.

The dental clinic closed in mid-March due to staff attendance at a Pacific Dental Conference in Vancouver where there was a confirmed case of COVID-19.

The clinic reopens June 1 with safety protocols in place.
