Open for Dental Emergencies, Appointments and Referrals
The Australian Dental Association has put together answers to most frequently asked questions about dental appointments and concerns about COVID-19. Dr Robles is a member of the ADA.
Our practice is open and seeing patients by appointments. Referrals for paediatric and special needs clients are provided consultation visits at the soonest time.
Is it safe to visit the dentist?
Australian dental practitioners have the highest infection control standards in the world and the safety of their patients and their teams is a cornerstone of Australian dental practice. Where appropriate, dentists may take extra precautions to keep you safe during the pandemic.
You should not delay dental treatment and your dentist is open and ready to help.
How can I find a dentist that will see me?
The Australian Dental Association has a list of dental practices that are safely treating patients for emergency dental treatment only. If your usual dentist is unavailable, you can find someone to help you at www.ada.org.au/find-a-dentist.
What should I expect if I do see my dentist?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, additional measures are being taken to stop the spread of the virus. You might see an empty waiting room and be asked to wash your hands or use hand sanitiser as you enter the practice, and on the way out, as well as other social distancing requirements.
If you have any questions about these additional measures please ask your dentist.
Can I be treated for a dental emergency if I have COVID-19?
If you need urgent dental care and think you may have COVID-19, it’s important to call your dentist or find a dentist near you and discuss your situation.
If you have a dental emergency and have been diagnosed with COVID-19, dental treatment is available as an in-patient or within a hospital setting by appropriately trained and credentialled dental personnel.
