Surgery Update – Covid-19 – 28/03/2020
Due to the evolving Covid-19 situation; and in line with the Australian Dental Association’s recommendations, Warners Bay Dental has implemented changes to it’s business operations, staff numbers and social distancing protocols.
Level 3 service restrictions have now been enforced within the Australian dental industry, which has greatly restricted the type of dental treatment we are able to provide our patients.
We want to assure our patients that we REMAIN OPEN however, services are restricted to urgent dental treatment only, where a patient is in pain. Appointments can be made via our website or by calling the surgery Monday to Friday.
We continue to defer all routine dental care.
Increased social distancing protocols have been implemented to ensure the safety of staff and patients. We will be asking that patients with appointments wait in their vehicles till their scheduled appointment time. The surgery’s waiting room will be closed to the public. At this stage we will only have one dentist and one support staff rostered on any given day.
The health and safety of our patients, staff and the community remain our priority. We urge you to keep yourselves and your family safe at this unprecedented time and look forward to welcoming you back to the surgery soon.
We thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation.
Surgery Update – Covid-19 – 24/03/2020
Australian Dental Association made recommendations yesterday to ‘Defer routine dental treatment that is considered to be non-urgent and will not impact on the dental or general health of the patient’ until the 30th of April 2020.
Warners Bay Dental will be open and the Australian Dental Association has recommended staying open, in order to minimise the need of patients to go to hospitals.
These recommendations will mean
- check-ups will be deferred
- dental treatment may be deferred. The treating dentist will determine whether the treatment is urgent. Please don’t hesitate to call regarding your upcoming treatment. If symptomatic or you have broken a tooth/filling please don’t hesitate to come into the surgery and get the issue examined as to avoid further deterioration
Additionally, we are continuing with the precautions adopted last week. (Please click link 17.03.2020 update).
