COVID-19 Update from Smiles in Currambine

Following the recent declaration by WHO of Coronavirus being a pandemic, we would like to inform you regarding the unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) and what it means for our dental practice.

QIP AccreditedYour Safety is our top priority!

We would like to take some time to let you know that we always follow strict universal infection control standards, and patient safety and the safety of our team is our priority.

The risk of exposure to the virus in our dental surgery is extremely low. We are an accredited dental practice and maintain the highest quality of care and standards at all times irrespective of any outbreaks such as Coronavirus.

We sterilise our instruments and disinfect all clinical and reception areas after each patient to prevent any risk of cross-contamination. Our staff are fully trained and certified to do this to the highest standards.

What specifically are we doing at our practice to protect patients?

Our strict protocol includes our receptionists establishing if patients:
1. Have a fever/history of fever and shortness of breath or a cough or a sore throat.
2. They have travelled overseas in the last 2 weeks, especially to any of the high-risk countries including China, Iran, Italy and the Republic of Korea
3. Been in close contact with anyone who has had confirmed Coronavirus (COVID-19) or who has been in a health facility treating them.
We would like to ask patients who have travelled to high-risk zones within the last 2 weeks to postpone non-urgent general dental treatment, if in doubt please call us on 9305 4888.

What can you do to help limit the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19)?

• Regular Handwashing
• If you do cough or sneeze, make sure that it is into a disposable tissue or the nook of your elbow to cover your mouth and nose.
• If you are unwell, wear a mask to stop the spread of any infection to others.
• Thoroughly cooking meat and eggs

For the safety and well being of our patients and staff, patients & anyone with them (including children) are not allowed to enter the building if:

1. They have been overseas within the last 14 days. We’ll defer appointments for 2 weeks.

2. If they have ANY of the following symptoms (regardless of travel history) – fever, cough, widespread body aches (flu-like), sore throat, stuffy/runny nose, vomiting, or diarrhoea. They must not attend until they have been 100% well for at least 48 hours or have had a negative Coronavirus test.

This may need to extend to those with sick people in their household or those who have travelled overseas within the last 14 days living in their household.
These are precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our patients are not compromised. For more information, you can also visit the Australian Government Department of Health Website.

Remember, keep good health by eating well, drink lots of water and plenty of rest! We look forward to seeing you soon.
