Level Two Restrictions reapplied
Due to the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 in the Metropolitan Melbourne community, Bay Road Dental has tightened back to Level Two Restrictions as of 15/7/20. This is a difficult but necessary decision as recommended by the Victorian Chief Health Officer and the Australian Dental Association Infection Control Committee.
While the number of active cases in Bayside are relatively low compared to other Local Government Areas, we feel an important responsibility to our patients and our staff during this delicate situation Victoria is going through.
This means we are still OPEN for treatment – however, our treatment will be limited to non aerosol producing procedures, or the use of rubber dam isolation for procedures where possible. We can still see you for emergencies, certain consultations, denture procedures, Invisalign, and some filling procedures. It excludes treatment such as standard ultrasonic cleaning, non urgent appointments, and surgical extractions. We are also still available for teleconferencing consultations.
Our infection control procedures remain as stringent as ever around screening of patients, temperature checks, environmental cleaning, pre-procedural mouthrinses, alcohol based hand rubs and now the provision of masks to patients where social distancing cannot be maintained.
If you have an upcoming appointment, one of our friendly team members will be in touch to explain how the new restrictions impacts you directly. Please be patient and understanding with our team members, as we are doing our best for you under the new recommendations. Our opening hours have also had to be adjusted. If you have further queries, please contact us on 95983580.
Feel free to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for any updates.
Otherwise, please stay safe and stay healthy, and stay home where possible. We look forward to being in touch when the situation in Melbourne has improved.
From Dr Gary, Dr Nikki and the team at Bay Road Dental
