ENTERING LEVEL 1 RESTRICTIONS ON MONDAY 11th May 2020
Dear Method Dental Family,
Due to the Covid-19 situation we will provide updates below regarding the restrictions on dental practices in Australia.
The health and safety of you, your family, our staff and the community are our priority and always will be.
The novel coronavirus presents a unique challenge to humanity and we need to come together to help prevent the spread of the virus and limit its damage.
Leading authorities within the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and the Australian Government have therefore placed restrictions upon dental practices across Australia. The latest details are provided below and will continue to be updated regularly.
Restrictions on Dental Practices
With the lowering of restrictions to Level 1 as of May 11th 2020, we are now allowed to provide our full range of treatment including preventative check up and cleaning. Method Dental had been practising under Level 2 Restrictions which only allowed for urgent and emergency dental treatment. We would encourage you to assess your dental health needs and to book an appointment or consultation as soon as possible as restrictions may go back up if the spread of the virus does not remain under control.
At Method Dental, we will continue to operate in the safest manner possible. There will be patient screening processes, social distancing in the reception area and extra infection control protocols in place that will allow us to provide a safe environment.
To be able to safely see patients within our clinic we need to ensure that our patients are not at risk of having Covid-19. Screening questions will be asked when making appointments and they include:
- Are you currently suffering from a fever?
- Are you currently suffering from any cold or flu-like symptoms including shortness of breath, coughing, sore throat, runny nose?
- Have you been overseas within the last 14 days?
- Have you been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19 within 14 days?
Follow-up questions may be required and you will always be asked these questions when making an appointment as well as the day of your appointment.
What should I do if I want a check up or have a dental problem?
Please contact us during our open hours on (07) 3188 5183 or email us outside of hours at [email protected]
We will update the details of restrictions as they become available on this page, via email and social media.
