  • Please attend your appointment alone, unless you are accompanying a minor
  • Hand sanitizer at reception and in each treatment room for all clients

Due to the recent Covid-19 restrictions, there have been changes to how we operate at Toothsavers. We are currently seeing all patients for dental treatment.

In doing so, we are very mindful of the risks associated and therefore have had to introduce new measures and protocols to address your immediate concerns, all whilst maintaining the Covid-19 social distancing requirements imposed by health authorities.

Listed below are our efforts to enable us to help you, our team and our community stay safe.

  • During the COVID 19 pandemic dentists have done a great job screening patients and ensuring the oral health needs of those needing emergency dental treatment have been addressed throughout the crisis.
  • ​We are doing treatments allowed  back to level 1 as per  Dental Council Guidelines , it opens up a much wider range of treatments dentists can do and means the oral health needs of all our symptom-free, healthy patients can be met.
  • So what does Level 1 mean for patients?
  • Level 1 restrictions basically mean dentists will be systematically and meticulously screening all their patients for signs of coronavirus. At Toothsavers we will be getting a signed declaration from patients on arrival. If you are unwell we are unable to treat you.
  • Those without any symptoms should be able to receive the Dental Treatment 
  • So only patients with symptoms of the illness will not be able to be treated, including those with even the mildest of symptoms such as a light cold.
  • We’re expecting this level of screening of patients to go on for many months to come.
  • Patients should be reassured that our dental practice is as safe as it has always been and it’s perfectly safe to return to Toothsavers  – Dr A.Thind and his team are used to operating with the highest levels of infection control - that’s how they work normally too.
  • We are now seeing ALL patients. (patients who are displaying cold or flu like symptoms will be deferred until they have been cleared of COVID19)
  • The person visiting for their appointment must not be accompanied by anyone. Only children may be accompanied by one Adult.
  • We have invested in enhanced protective gear for all our staff such that there is reduced risk of any transmission between the patient and our team.
  • We have installed clear screens at our reception, hand sanitiser at our reception desk and around the practice , to enable us to follow social distancing rules whilst you visit us.
  • We have invested in New Equipment, so that in addition to our strict infection control protocols, we can now enhance the sterilisation of the surgery rooms and its environment, after each patient visit!

We are currently open to discussing your concerns, requests for immediate/future appointments or feedback via phone (02 4647 5555) or via e-mail: info@toothsavers.com.au from Mon to Fri 9am to 6pm.

We appreciate your understanding. Together we can make this work safely within the imposed regulations. We want you to know that you will always be a priority for Toothsavers Dentistsl as we are here to help.

Stay safe.
