COVID-19 Updates from Six Twelve Family Dental

To Our Beloved Patients,

We will be reopening again from 2nd May!

Following the 21st April National Cabinet meeting, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPCC) made the recommendation that current dental level 3 restrictions will be moved down to level 2 restrictions from 26th April onwards. The easing of such restrictions now means we are now able to resume a larger range of dental procedures including:

  • Fillings
  • Non-surgical tooth extractions
  • Orthodontic procedures (e.g. Invisalign, braces)
  • Crowns, bridges and veneers
  • Root canal treatments
  • Dentures

Our extra precautionary measures will continue, including the following:

  • All dental visits by appointment only
  • Screening measures prior to each appointment: you will be asked about:

–       Any flu-like symptoms

–       Contact with any confirmed COVID-19 cases

  • Use of increased PPE (personal protective equipment)
  • Extra time is allocated for each appointment in order to minimize patient contact in waiting rooms
  • The recommendation that patients attend alone or with minimal accompanying persons
  • Alcohol sanitizer on arrival, and prior to leaving the clinic
  • Peroxide mouth rinse prior to the start of any examinations/procedures

Australia’s current coronavirus numbers have shown some encouraging signs in the last few days. Despite the recent good news, we’d encourage everyone to maintain current guidelines to reduce risk of coronavirus transmission, including social distancing, minimizing outside contact, frequent hand washing, and only leaving the house for essential purposes.

As always, the health and safety of our staff, patients and the wider community remains our top priority!

Our phone lines remain open during business hours, so please do not hesitate to call (02) 9558 6656 if you require any advice or need to make an appointment. Alternatively, you may email us at reception@six12dental.com.au.

Warmest Wishes,

The Team at Six Twelve Family Dental
