As you are aware the Victorian State Government has introduced New ‘Circuit Breaker Actions’ to restrict the spread of COVID 19 from 11.59pm 12th February.
The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch has issued the following advice for all dentists in the public and private sectors.
“Procedures and surgical treatment undertaken by dentists in the management of:
i. patients with obvious facial swelling due to infection i.e. vestibular swelling (no trismus), facial swelling (with trismus); or
ii. facial trauma; or
iii. severe unrelenting pain.
Dentists should only provide emergency care within the framework described above.”
MHT Dentistry has contacted the majority of patients with appointments in the latest Victorian lockdown to re schedule appointments following 17th February when the current restrictions are due to be lifted.
As you are aware this is a dynamic situation and we will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with our patients any future changes to our services.
If you have any queries or are experiencing any pain or discomfort please call the surgery to discuss your options on 9813 8853.
