We finally have some GOOD news!
The Covid-19 restrictions imposed upon us by the Australian Dental Association have eased from Level 3 to Level 2.
This is a positive move for the profession and is a proportionate response based on the evolving community context, which will allow for the treatment of patients beyond emergencies.
So, what does this mean for You, Our Practice and Your Dental Treatment?
We will now be able to offer safely the following procedures:
*Root Canal Procedures
*In addition to also treating any Toothaches, Swellings or Trauma as per the Level 3 guidelines.
While the easing of restrictions is great news it does not yet mean we are returning to business as usual.
Unfortunately, at this stage we will not be offering basic Exam/Scale and Polish appointments, but please do keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for further updates coming soon!
Although restrictions are easing, we must still be very aware of the potential threat of Covid-19.
As a result of this, we will still be maintaining the stringent cross- infection control and decontamination procedures already in place. In light of this, we ask you to please continue to abide to the following guidelines:
*Please do not attend the surgery without a scheduled appointment. We are contactable at any time via the portals listed below.
*If possible, please attend alone to limit the number of people in the waiting area so we can adhere to the social distancing guidelines. Please do not come to the surgery before your scheduled appointment time.
*Please use the hand sanitizer provided at the main door when you are entering and existing the building.
*When arranging your appointment please inform staff if you have:
*felt unwell recently including but not limited to symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath.
*been diagnosed with COVID-19
*been in contact with somebody diagnosed with COVID-19
*been advised to self- isolate
*been in contact with somebody who is self-isolating
