Your Safety Is Our Top Priority!
We would like to take some time to let you know that we always follow strict universal infection control standards, and patient safety and the safety of our team is our priority.
The risk of exposure to the virus in our dental surgery is extremely low. We are an accredited dental practice and maintain the highest quality of care and standards at all times irrespective of any outbreaks such as Coronavirus.
We sterilise our instruments and disinfect all clinical and reception areas after each patient to prevent any risk of cross-contamination. Our staff are fully trained and certified to do this to the highest standards.
What Specifically Are We Doing at Our Practice to Protect Patients?
Our strict protocol includes our receptionists establishing in advance if patients:
- Have any symptoms including fever/history of fever and shortness of breath or a cough or a sore throat.
- They have travelled overseas or interstate in the last 2 weeks.
- Been in close contact with anyone who has had confirmed Coronavirus (COVID-19) or who has been in a health facility treating them.
- Visited any exposure sites or high risk area as per Healthy WA
We would like to ask patients who have travelled to high-risk zones and exposure sites within the last 2 weeks to postpone non-urgent general dental treatment, if in doubt please call us on 9305 4888.
What Can You Do to Help Limit the Spread of The Corona Virus (COVID-19)?
• Regular handwashing
• Do not touch your face
• If you do cough or sneeze, make sure that it is into a disposable tissue or the nook of your elbow to cover your mouth and nose
• If you feel unwell get tested and self-isolate
• Wear a mask to stop the spread of any infection to other
• Get Vaccinated
For the safety and well being of our patients and staff, patients & anyone with them (including children) are not allowed to enter the building if:
1. They have been overseas within the last 14 days. We’ll defer appointments for 2 weeks.
2. They have been interstate and are required to quarantine. We’ll defer appointments for 2 weeks.
3. If they have ANY of the following symptoms (regardless of travel history) – fever, cough, widespread body aches (flu-like), sore throat, stuffy/runny nose, vomiting, or diarrhoea. They must not attend until they have been 100% well for at least 48 hours or have had a negative Coronavirus test.
This may need to extend to those with sick people in their household or those who have travelled overseas within the last 14 days living in their household.
These are precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our patients are not compromised. For more information, you can also visit the Australian Government Department of Health Website.
Remember, keep good health by eating well, drink lots of water and plenty of rest! We look forward to seeing you soon.
