Your Dental Visit and COVID-19
To all our patients, referrers, and parents wishing to bring your kids to us for dental treatment, our Aitkenvale and Bushland Beach surgeries remain open but operating on ADA Level 3 Dental Service Restriction.
The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC), comprised of all state and territory Chief Health Officers and chaired by the Australian Chief Medical Officer recommends adopting the ‘Managing COVID-19 Guidelines’ published by the ADA and implementing a triage system for dental practice.
The guideline states that at this time, to stop the spread of the virus, "dentists should only perform dental treatments that do not generate aerosols, or where treatment generating aerosols is limited. All routine examinations and treatments should be deferred."
Our government has set an expectation that measures introduced across the board may become more restrictive and continue for an extended period.
