Health officials won’t confirm how B.C. dentist who attended conference with COVID-19 outbreak died

B.C.’s top health officials won’t confirm whether a North Vancouver dentist who attended a dental conference earlier this month died of the novel coronavirus.

The Pacific Dental Conference, March 5-7, saw an outbreak of COVID-19 — prompting health officials to ask attendees of the event to self-isolate.

Dr. Denis Vincent, a healthy man in his 60s who attended the conference, died over the weekend of suspected coronavirus complications, sources tell Global News.

People who knew Vincent tell Global News he died alone at home.

“He was as fit as a fiddle,” friend Stacey Nixon said.

“He was talking about having a great time with his sons skiing on some very difficult slopes in Whilster. He passed away on Sunday — so two weeks.”
