COVID-19

I have an upcoming appointment at Dental O So Gentle, should I reschedule it?

No. One of the best ways of ensuring your continued wellbeing during times like these is to keep your body healthy, including your oral health. It is very important to keep your dental appointments, especially your dental hygiene, so that you can avoid getting into dental trouble down the track.

 

What if I am experiencing flu-like symptoms?

If you are feeling symptomatic and unwell reschedule your appointment with us, or when you feel better and have received a negative RAT test.

 

What is Dental O So Gentle doing to protect its patients?

At both of our clinics, we continue our uncompromising commitment to make sure all infection control protocols are in place. That way you can come in for your appointment with peace of mind. Additionally, we remain as vigilant as ever in ensuring that patient waiting time in our reception area is kept to an absolute minimum.

When you come into our clinics, we ask that you sanitise your hands with the hand-sanitiser provided in our reception areas, and then sanitise once again after your treatment.

Our clinicians follow the recommended Dental PPE (ADA) and infection control protocols to minimise any risk. In addition, all our staff gargle with a viricidal mouth rinse (eg. Betadine or Hydrogen Peroxide mouth rinse) twice a day in the clinic and every patient is required to do the same before any treatment. We have fitted all our treatment rooms with Hepa-filtered Air Purifiers which remove aerosol and 99% of viruses in the aerosol.

 

Do you have any other advice about lowering one’s risk?

We strongly encourage you to follow normal hygiene procedures as well as getting plenty of fresh air, sunshine (Vit D), exercise, eat healthily and make sure you have all your nutraceuticals
