COVID - 19 Update

 

 

Good News! The Australian Dental Association and Australian Government have eased back all dental practice restrictions to Level 1 Restrictions. This means we can now see patients for all treatments.

Our staff will be in contact with anyone who had any appointments cancelled during the Level 2 and 3 Restrictions to reschedule. In saying that our practice hours have had a slight change - we are opening as usual during the weekdays Monday – Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm; however our Saturday appointments will be limited for now. If you have an upcoming Saturday appointment you will be contacted by our staff.

During these quieter times the team here at Wishart Family Dental has had the opportunity to undergo further education in prevention and infection control. We want to reassure you, Wishart Family Dental has always upheld a high standard of hygiene and sanitation by attaining Infection Control Certificates. Due to the COVID – 19 pandemic we have implemented more ways to maintain this high standard of care. We will continue this screening process for our future appointments for the safety of our patients, staff and wider community.

What our Practice is doing:

We would like to take the time to assure you we will continue to maintain our high standards of hygiene and sanitation.

  •  At Wishart Family Dental we are an Accredited Dental Practice, we hold an Infection Control Certificate ensuring all treatment is performed in line with the ADA guidelines and legislation.

  • We are continually monitoring and practicing all protocols from the Queensland Government and the Australian Dental Association. We are currently practicing different Levels of Restrictions for dentistry  and would keep you up to date via Facebook, email, Youtube or Instagram

  • We are checking the temperatures of our staff daily and any patients seen at the practice

  • We are kindly asking all our patients to undergo a simple temperature check and antibacterial mouth rinse before entering our practice

  • We have wash basins in all treatment rooms for our patients use to for before and after the appointment

  • All magazines, books and toys have been temporarily removed
