Advice to patients and the Canberra dental community during the COVID-19 pandemic
As a specialist dental care provider, maintaining strict hygiene standards has always been of the highest importance to us. We continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and are keeping a close eye on official information including guidance released by the Australian Dental Association, Australian Government Department of Health and ACT Health.
Our practice maintains strict hygiene and sterilisation standards, and has been independently and nationally recognised for meeting the National Safety and Quality Health Service standards.
These standards ensure that equipment is sterilised and all surfaces are thoroughly cleaned between patients. Our staff are highly trained in maintaining these standards, and you can be assured that we are doing all we can to ensure the safety of our patients particularly during this time.
The health, safety, and well-being of our team, patients and the Canberra community is our top priority and we are committed to doing all we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 within the community. HEPA filter units are installed throughout the practice.
We have been made aware that some dental practices have decided to cease treatment of patients. Please be assured that Endodontics and Dental Traumatology will not be closing its doors to our valued patients, especially to those who are in pain. We are carefully following our COVID-19 Precautions Protocol and will keep abreast of the latest government advice updating our protocols if required in line with this advice, to ensure continued safe practice.
