Excellent news! The State Government has further eased dental restrictions to Level 1

It’s excellent news for dentists and all our lovely clients. As of Monday 28th September, the Victorian State Government has further eased restrictions on dental clinics back to Level 1. 

We can now provide all dental and orthodontic services as long as the patient presents no risk of COVID-19 transmission. 

Patients should also be aware that they are permitted to see their preferred dentist even if they are outside their 5km zone as long as you have a booked appointment.
