On Friday the 8th of May 2020 the Dental Boards of Australia and NSW announced that dentists are able to provide dental services under Level One restrictions.
This means that you can have your teeth and gums thoroughly cleaned again.
I am not able to treat you if you are known to have the COVID infection, or if you have the symptoms of a fever, breathlessness and/or dry cough.
I am also unable to treat anyone who has recently returned from overseas (as unlikely as this is) or has been exposed to Coronavirus.
I can be reached by calling (02) 91998563 or 0418 460 520, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
No doubt you are aware that the COVID-19 strain of coronavirus has caused an outbreak of infection in several nations of the world. On the 11th of March 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. More information about what defines a pandemic, what this means and the COVID-19 virus can be found on the NSW Department of Health website.
Symptoms of COVID-19 infection
It is important that we are aware of the symptoms of COVID-19 infection.
From the Department of Health website:
“Patients may have fever, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath and other symptoms.
In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia with severe acute respiratory distress.”
This link contains more information on COVID-19, with further links that may be of interest to you.
Note that these symptoms are almost impossible to distinguish from a regular cold or flu.
Please call your doctor and seek their advice if you develop any of the symptoms listed above.
The commitment of our practice
Our current protocols are listed here and will be updated regularly.
