Vancouver dentist dies after exposure to COVID-19

Dentist dies after exposure

COVID-19 is believed to have claimed another victim in British Columbia, this time a dentist.

CTV News Vancouver is reporting that Denis Vincent, a Vancouver-area dentist who attended a convention in Vancouver earlier this month has died due to suspected coronavirus complications.

Vincent had been practicing in North Vancouver for three decades and recently spent time at the Pacific Dental Conference at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The dentist has been associated with a major outbreak cluster of the coronavirus.

Those who know the dentist describe him as generous and a good person.

Christine Hellard told CTV News: "He was really nice and I could tell he had a good long-standing relationship with his patients."

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said Tuesday the coroner is still investigating Vincent's death, adding everyone that had been in contact with him has been notified.
