At Dental on George, we consider the safety and health of our patients and staff as our utmost priority. Given the current global COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking extra measures to help slow the spread such as:
- Ensuring patients to use the hand sanitiser located at our reception area
- Requiring any staff who have been overseas to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival in Australia
- Continuing to follow a high standard of sanitation and infection control throughout the surgery
Given the dynamic nature of the situation, rest assured that we are closely monitoring and following guidelines as set by the Department of Health. If you have questions or concerns regarding COVID-19, please call the National Coronavirus Helpline at 1800 020 080 or visit https://www.wa.gov.au/government/coronavirus-covid-19 for up-to-date info. Please keep Triple Zero (000) for emergencies only.
At present, the guidelines from the Department of Health and the Australian Dental Association is that all dental surgeries are free to re-commence with all routine dental care with simple patient screening for any viral symptoms.
