COVID-19 URGENT UPDATE:

To all our wonderful patients,

Scott Morrison has eased the restrictions for Dentists, meaning the Australian Dental Association has allowed us to ease back into Level 1 restrictions. After careful consideration and planning we have made the decision to open our Practice with alternate hours from the 11th May.

We will be following Level 1 guidelines, which now allows us to see ALL routine, cosmetic, orthodontic and emergency appointments. This does not mean we are easing our extra precautions with infection control; we aim to ensure the health and safety of both our patients and staff is kept priority. We have chosen to only allow a limited amount of appointments per day to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

We will be available to see our patients for all routine Examinations, Professional Cleans, Fillings, Crowns, Invisalign & Orthodontic Consultations, Implant Consultations, Emergency appointments, Routine Invisalign & Orthodontic appointments, selected Oral Hygiene appointments & more… Please call us if you are needing to be seen by a Dentist and we will do our best to assist you with an appointment.
