COVID-19 Pandemic Notice
Gentle Care Dentistry is closely monitoring COVID-19 and are acting in accordance with recommendations from The Australian Dental Association and The Department of Health.
Currently there is Level 3 restrictions for dentistry as announced by the government. This information has been received from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC), comprised of all state and territory Chief Health Officers and chaired by the Australian Chief Medical Officer.
"AHPPC recommends adopting the ‘Managing COVID-19 Guidelines’ published by the ADA and implementing a triage system for dental practice. AHPPC recommends that all dental practices implement level 3 restrictions as outlined in ADA’s guidance. That is, 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."
Government has set an expectation that measures introduced across the board may become more restrictive and continue for an extended period. At this stage, the restrictions will likely last until the 30th of April.
As our clinic works with patients of varying health conditions, we understand the seriousness of the situation and are introducing additional precautions on top of our existing, strict infection control procedures.
We would like to remind patients to consider the following:
- Have you travelled overseas in the last two weeks?
- Have you been on a cruise in the last two weeks?
- Have you been in contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus/COVID-19?
- Do you have any cold or flu symptoms? These include
Shortness of breath
If yes, please do not come to the surgery.
Please call (02) 8411 2674 for any urgent matters.
