COVID-19 Protocols
last updated June 2020

Even though restrictions have eased and we are able to provide all dental treatments including check-ups and cleans,  we are still implementing strict COVID-19 infection control protocols at our practice to protect our patients, staff and community.

 

Before your appointment:

  • We will continue to screen all our patients for flu-like symptoms, contact with confirmed COVID-19 cases and/or those who have recently returned form overseas.

  • We will continue to maintain the highest standard of infection control measures

  • We have rearranged our waiting room to enable social distancing and removed all cushions and magazines

  • We will increase the frequency of disinfection and wiping of hard surfaces in common areas.

On the day of your appointment:

  • We encourage all patients to use the hand sanitisers provided when entering and exiting our surgery.

  • All patients (and those accompanying the patient) will have their temperatures taken with a touch-less thermometer. Anyone with a temperature reading of 38°C or above will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

  • We will limit the number of patients (and those accompanying the patient) in the waiting room and inside each surgery.

  • We will provide all patients with a pre-procedural rinse to reduce bacterial and viral content to minimise transmission.

  • We will continue using rubber dam isolation for procedures where possible.

 

We are working hard to get in touch with some of you who we’ve previously had to reschedule due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Please give us a call on 8756 5740 or book online if you need to make an appointment.  

 

We will continue to monitor the situation based on current advice from the Australian Government and health authorities. Your safety and the safety of our community has been and continues to be our team’s utmost priority.

 

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this time.

 

If you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to call us or send us an email.
