COVID-19 Update. 8 May 2020

On 8 May 2020, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) advised that 'Level 1' restrictions now apply to dentists. Under Level 1 restrictions, patients are triaged and those assessed as low risk can be treated with precautions.

Following the recent reporting of new COVID-19 cases in Victoria, our practice has independently decided to continue to defer all routine and non-urgent dental treatments until the end of May 2020.

If you require urgent dental treatment, please email us at info@careforsmiles.com.au for advice on the treatment options we can provide.

At this stage, our expectation is that from June 2020 we will be able to treat routine and non-urgent patients but with additional precautions.

Care For Smiles follows the infection control protocol guidelines set by the Australian Dental Association (ADA) at all times. Our duty of care is to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.

Gentle Caring Female Dentist, Fairfield

Dr Rosemary Phillipos. Gentle female family dentist. Fairfield

Care For Smiles. A small, modern, independent family dental clinic, located in the Melbourne suburb of Fairfield, where dentistry is practiced by friendly female dentists in a caring, gentle atmosphere. We provide comprehensive and affordable family and cosmetic dental care to the Fairfield, Thornbury, Alphington, Northcote and near communities.

Dr Priti Rosemary Phillipos, a local resident, and the Care For Smiles Team take pride in offering the best family and cosmetic dental care in a relaxed, friendly, non-clinical environment. We are a small, independent, owner-operated dental practice without the corporate overheads of larger practices. Instead, we take the time to get to know our patients and to understand their individual needs and dental care requirements. We show how to improve and maintain excellent oral health, prevent dental decay and gum problems, and to have a smile that looks and feels great.
