The Queensland Government has announced a three-day lockdown of the Greater Brisbane region from 5pm Monday 29 March to 12pm Thursday 1 April following four cases of community transmission of COVID-19.
To our valued patients,
We are open for dental emergencies and provide essential dental treatment by appointment only.
TC Dental Group has implemented further strict infection control measures to keep you and our staff safe during your treatment visit.
- Cancel all non-essential patient treatment and procedures in line with ADA Dental Service Restrictions in Covid-19. The provision of dental treatment should be limited to:
- Those that do not generate aerosols such as:
– dental examinations without the use of a triplex
– the use of hand instruments only for periodontal infection
– analgesics or antimicrobials
– soft tissue pathology e.g. ulcers
- Where generating aerosols is limited to management of:
– acute dental pain by endodontic treatment or restorative treatment of extensive carious lesions under dental dam
– significantly damaged upper front teeth e.g. due to trauma, with restorative treatment provided under dental dam
– dental/oral health conditions at higher risk of negative outcomes if no access to timely intervention e.g. post-orthognathic surgery review, impacted third molars, impacted canines, loss of temporary crown
– complex medically compromised patients with dental concerns which may compromise their systemic disease
– a higher risk of rapid progression of dental disease
– medically necessary dental care on referral from a medical practitioner.
- Screen all patients prior to attendance at the practice in line with the ADA Guidelines for managing COVID-19.
- Follow the Queensland Health pandemic response guidance on PPE, including the continuous use of surgical masks for all staff in community health settings, which includes dental practises.
Pandemic response guide: PPE in healthcare delivery
Pandemic response guide: PPE in community health and in-home care settings
- Greater Brisbane residents must wear masks outside the home, including on public transport and in workplaces. For the rest of Queensland, masks should be worn while indoors (excluding your home) where social distancing is not possible.
- Any person who has visited the Greater Brisbane region since March 20 is required to follow the lockdown provisions. This will include any practice staff working outside of the Greater Brisbane region but who have visited the Greater Brisbane region since March 20.
