COVID-19 Update

Update to our PatientS

We now have been given the “go ahead” to re-open and we shall start seeing regular orthodontic patients as of

Monday June 15th.


There are still some restrictions that are necessary, such as maintaining physical distancing and controlling the flow of patients, however this is something we can all work together on.


As we have not been able to see patients for three months there obviously be some delay in appointment and we for your patients and cooperation in this matter. 


We are starting to contact our patients whose appointment had to be cancelled which will be ongoing, if by chance you have not been contacted by our patient coordinators please call our office to book your follow up and we will do our best to book you as soon as we can, again expect delays. 


We have taken this time to install protective shields and upgrade some of our necessary personal protective equipment for our staff to ensure your safety and ours.

Many are naturally concerned about time between appointments and if this will draw out treatment.  Please understand that I use the most sophisticated bracket system that maintains it effects over a prolonged period so that even though you may not feel as though your treatment is progressing, it in fact is still being influenced during the present COVID-19 office interruption. 


These are some of the changes you will notice at your next appointment.

  • Our office will communicate with you before your next appointment to explain changes to our patient sign in process and clinical procedures.  We will also be reviewing with you a screening questionnaire. 
  • Sanitizing of hands is a MUST before entering our waiting room area.
  • There will be no more magazines, children’s toys, books and so forth as these items are difficult to maintain their disinfectant.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients, therefore please be aware that this may mean fewer options for scheduling your appointment.  Our scheduling Coordinators will try their best to accommodate so please be patient.
  • We will restrict the number of people attending to an appointment with the patient limiting it to one (1) parent ONLY.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and my staff safe and healthy.

Professional Orthodontic Treatment in Ottawa

A certified family orthodontist based in Ottawa, Dr. Ian M. Milne makes healthy, attractive smiles more possible for his patients through customized, progressive care and current state-of-the-art techniques, including Invisalign and braces. Dr. Milne is the past president of both the Canadian Association of Orthodontists and the Canadian Foundation of Orthodontics. His many years of experience, professionalism, and dedication to providing ongoing patient education make him and his entire clinical support staff a well-qualified choice when it comes to orthodontic treatments to enhance your quality of life and the overall look of your teeth.

How Invisalign Treatments Work at Our Office
When it comes to Invisalign treatments, many practitioners expect the Invisalign lab technicians to diagnose and provide the treatment instructions for their patients. However, this is not true of Dr. Ian M. Milne, who prefers to direct the technicians himself. In fact, he has even travelled to the Invisalign laboratory himself to ensure that his specific instructions for his patients were followed to the letter. If you’re interested in straightening your teeth using virtually invisible Invisalign aligners, Dr. Milne would welcome the opportunity to provide you with a consultation to see if they would be a good fit for your specific lifestyle and budget.
