Dental Practice – Regional Operating Regime

Dental Practice – Regional Operating Regime

On Thursday 6th August, the Victorian Government imposed new Stage 3 Stay at Home Covid-19 restrictions on regional Victoria.

On Friday 7th August, the Victorian Branch of the Australian Dental Association issued guidance that dentists should operate at Level 2 dental restrictions if there are active cases of Covid-19 in their region of operation.

Our surgery operating regime therefore is fluid, and during periods of active Covid-19 cases in the Latrobe region, some dental procedures will be restricted under Level 2 restrictions.

What does all this mean for our patients?

  1. Our dental surgery is open to practice.
  2. As well as employing standard precautions to prevent cross infection, we also continue to extensively use ozone in the dental surgery as an antimicrobial agent.
  3. Our friendly staff can provide guidance when scheduling your appointment, if a restriction applies in meeting your individual need.

Our dental surgery continues to adhere to the guidelines and restrictions set in place by the relevant authorities and will keep our patients updated should there be any further change.

From the team at Dr Caprara Dental Surgery we ask all our patients and their loved ones to stay safe and wish you all good health.
