Update 5 April

We wish to update you on the temporary restrictions placed on the type of dental care you can access Australia-wide during this Coronavirus Pandemic.

The Australian Dental Association (ADA), Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) and subsequently our governing body the Dental Board of Australia, have mandated that dentists across Australia must operate under level 3 restrictions: dentists can no longer do any routine dental procedures. The practice of dentistry is now limited to emergency treatment with strict limitations on what can actually be done within this category.

We have been proactive in our response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Not only have we instituted additional sanitisation, social distancing, patients screening and infection controls above our already exceptional standards, but we have also stayed abreast of and adopted all of the recommendations made by the ADA well before they became a legal requirement. We have taken this approach to ensure the safety and well being of all of our patients, our staff and to ensure we play our part in protecting the community from the spread of COVID 19.

So, it stands to reason for our thousands of loyal patients to ask: What will happen to me should I have a dental problem? To this I want to reassure you we will do our best to ensure that you are looked after during these unprecedented times.

Should you have an emergency, pain, swelling, trauma to your front teeth or even a niggling concern about your dental health, please call us to arrange an appointment before further restrictions are placed on dental procedures that we can safely perform.

If our office is closed and you need to arrange a consultation, please call us on our emergency number 0468 456 433.

Finally, as we navigate through life during these unprecedented times we hope that you all stay safe, heed good advice, take great care of your health and we look forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future.
