The Victorian Health Minister announces restrictions have been eased to Level 2 for dentists

It’s great news for dentists and all our lovely clients. We will be able to provide many extra services as of Monday 28th September. 

In addition to emergency services, we will be providing all general dental services which are unlikely to generate aerosols. Effectively this means we can do most general dental work outside of hygiene appointments. 

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.
