Essential Dental has re-opened after the mandatory 7 day lockdown. Please note, it is mandatory to wear face masks in any medical facility so please remember to wear your mask to any upcoming appointments please. You will see our staff wearing masks both in and out of the clinic. If you forget, or are unable to source a mask in time for you appointment, we can provide you with one for the day.

If you need any help with wearing a mask feel free to ask us as we have all the tips and tricks to ensure masks are comfortable and prevent fogging of glasses. As health professionals we have always worn masks for clinical procedures so we can help with any concerns.

And yes… you won’t need to wear your mask while you are getting treatment done!

Thank you.
The Team at Essential Dental

At Essential Dental, we are actively monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 presence in Australia and are taking precautions to protect our patients and staff during this period.

We would like to assure you that we already have impeccable medical workplace standards as part of our role as a primary health provider, that naturally make our practice as safe as possible to attend. We are committed to providing dental care throughout this time, despite the challenges. We ask that everyone follows appropriate hygiene measures.

What our staff are doing to protect you?
• Rigorous disinfection of treatment rooms, reception area, waiting area, bathrooms before and after every patient and surfaces that are touched often such as door handles, phones, pens.
• Our staff uphold thorough hand hygiene and/or use surgical gloves, masks etc.
• We have removed all items such as books, magazines, children’s toys from waiting areas to ensure your safety.
• We have hand sanitiser and hand wash soap available at our practice.
• We will be logging all patients and visitors to do our part for the community.

What you can do to help us and the community:
• If you feel unwell, please allow us to reschedule you to a later date.
• If you have travelled recently or been in contact with someone who has.
• Please limit the number of visitors you bring to our clinic when attending your appointment. We usually love to have visitors to our practice however, during this uncertain time, non-essential visitors should not be in the treatment room with you.
• Please make use of our hand sanitiser and wash your hands thoroughly.

We have put these measures in place to ensure that we protect our valued patients, our staff and the wider community. The commitment to the health and safety of our patients, staff and community is our primary concern.
