Visiting your dentist during the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Please only visit your practice if you have an appointment and book an appointment only if essential – dentists are currently prioritising the vulnerable or those with the most urgent need.
  • Appointments for some routine treatments, such as dental check-ups, may have to be rescheduled for a later date.
  • Your practice will look a little different than usual as they will be operating in a way that observes COVID-19 social distancing and hygiene rules to ensure everyone’s safety.
