COVID-19 Preventative Measures and Update

woman wearing maskFollowing the Government’s directive, we are moving to Level 1 restrictions from 8TH May 2020.

The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) supports the current recommendation by the Australian Dental Association that we now move to level 1 restrictions. Level 1 restrictions permit all dental treatments using standard precautions for people who do not meet epidemiological or clinical risk factors for COVID-19 infection transmission.

As an Accredited Dental Practice, we would like to assure you on the additional precautions we are continuing to take to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our patients and team.

  • Screening of all patients before their appointment and on arrival for overseas travel or have had close contact with a known COVID-19 case within the last 14 days, fever, cold or flu-like symptoms
  • Screening for all patients residing in or visited a known high-risk area with a cluster of cases or recently tested for COVID-19
  • All high risk surfaces such as EFTPOS machines are frequently cleaned
  • Continue monitoring additional government directives and implementing as advised
  • Adherence to other government recommendations that are currently in place to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 will continue. This includes social distancing measures and hand hygiene principles, as applicable in both clinical and non-clinical areas.

Again, we would like to assure you we are upholding our usual high safety and infection control standards and these are additional infection control measures as outlined by the World Health Organisation.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding our health, safety and hygiene practices and procedures or for the latest advice, information and resources, please visit www.health.gov.au.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this unexpected and uncertain time.
