Level 2 Covid-19 Update

Good News! From the 28th of September we will move to LEVEL 2 restriction. This means we will be able to provide dental treatments that are unlikely to generate aerosols or where aerosols generated have the presence of minimal saliva/blood due to the use of rubber dams. A run down of treatments allowed can be found by on the ‘ADA Dental Service Restrictions in COVID-19‘.

If all goes well, we should move to LEVEL 1 restriction from the 26th of October where the majority of dental treatments will go back to normal for all patients not suspected of having Covid-19.

Our clinic will continue to uphold the highest infection control and hygiene standards with protocols like Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), patient screening, hand sanitiser, masks, social distancing, limiting numbers inside the clinic, regular wipe down of surfaces after each patient etc. to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Tendler Dental Team

Tendler Dental is OPEN during these new restrictions

The Tendler Dental team would like to extend our heartfelt good wishes to all our patients at this time.

Stage 4 lockdown restrictions in Melbourne will affect many of our families.

We would like to reach out and let you know, that we can do this together, and if you need any help, support, advice or just a chat, we are here for you.

Under the new government restrictions across Victoria, dental services will continue to operate, and patients are allowed to visit the dentist, for necessary dental care, including if their dentist is OVER 5km AWAY. If further restrictions are announced, we will ensure all patients are informed promptly of any appointment changes.

In saying this, Tendler Dental acknowledges how crucial it is, during this lockdown, to “Stay At Home”. We strongly recommend patients only attend appointments that require immediate dental care. We will encourage that non-essential treatment be deferred for the next six weeks.

During this time our recall system will still operate, we strongly advise and promote regular examinations/hygiene for your dental and overall health. If you receive a recall, feel free to call us for advice and we can schedule an appointment in a few months.

The health of our staff and patients is our first priority and we would like you to know that we will be working to that by providing excellent necessary dental care and minimising the risk of community spread.

This is a challenging time for our city, and we will continue to respond to the advice of the government and peak bodies. We greatly appreciate your ongoing support of our practice, please take care and stay safe.

The Team at Tendler Dental
