COVID - 19 Updates

COVID -19 Update 27 September 2020 We are pleased to be able to return to offering ALL dental services from 28 September. This exciting development is in line with the announcement from the Australian Dental Association on Sunday 27 September, following advice from the Victorian Chief Medical Officer. Please call us for an appointment, as we can now help! 9758 5641 At Dobson Dental we continue to take the Coronavirus Pandemic very seriously. We have ongoing additional measures to ensure that our staff and patients’ safety is protected. In accordance with guidelines provided by the Australian Dental Association (ADA), the World Health Organisation (WHO), and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) we are continuing with current protocols as outlined below. What we are doing to reduce risk: • Extending appointment times to allow for extra cleaning between patients across the whole practice - this will also reduce the number of people in the building at any one time • Pre-screening of patients over the phone and recommending to anyone whose health changes to reschedule their appointment • Upon attending the clinic, you will have your temperature taken, be asked to use alcohol hand gel, then in the treating room wash your hands with soap and water • We have removed all magazines, books and toys to prevent cross contamination • Patients will be required to rinse with hydrogen peroxide mouthwash immediately prior to treatment to reduce any potential viral load in the saliva What we need from you: • Monitor your health and advise us over the phone if you are feeling unwell – we cannot and will not treat patients infected with Covid-19, or at risk of infection with Covid-19. • Please use cards for payment wherever possible to reduce cross contamination from bank notes • Please consider if it is possible you could be a COVID-19 carrier, as asymptomatic carriers exist in the community. If you think you could possibly be one of these, please reschedule your appointment, and call the CORONAVIRIS HOTLINE on 1800 675 398 We would like to reassure you that we are maintaining our high infection control standards, and that our dental practice remains one of the most hygienic places you can be. Keep smiling and look after one another. Please contact us for any questions or concerns, or to schedule an appointment. 03 9758 5641
