COVID-19 Update. 1 November 2020
The Victorian Government has now eased restrictions so that dentists can provide treatment according to ADA Level 1 guidelines. Care For Smiles can now provide dental services to patients with low COVID-19 risk factors, including pain relief, dental examinations/check-up, sealants, fillings, Root Canal Treatments, extractions, mouth guards and dentures.
If you require dental treatment or to discuss your specific situation further, please email us at email@example.com or call during business hours. Patients with appointments will be required to comply with the triaging process and and further guidelines for safe practice delivery according to our COVID safe plan, based on recommendations from the Australian Dental Association and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.
Features of our COVID Safe plan include :
- No Mask - No Entry. If you do not wish to wear a mask in the clinic, for the safety of everyone please defer your non-urgent dental treatment
- If you have a lawful exemption for not wearing a mask, please provide a medical certificate from your GP. We request that you defer non-urgent dental treatment
- Additional directions for patients will be provided by email prior to your appointment
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.
Thank you for your trust, understanding and continuing support.
