Coronavirus safety update: Thursday 17th September 2020
As of 11:59pm Wednesday 17th of September 2020, the Premier of Victoria announced that regional Victoria will move to the Third Step of the roadmap to the reopening of the State and more specifically regional Victoria.
Currently there are very few active cases of COVID-19 in our Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Greater Shepparton, Campaspe, Moira, Benalla, Wangaratta and Strathbogie.
Goulburn Valley Dental Group continue to provide dental treatment under Level 1 dental treatment restrictions and will provide ALL the fabulous treatments that our patients are accustomed to.
We will continue to monitor the active cases in our LGAs and if the active case numbers increase again we will move to Level 2 dental treatment restrictions where some aerosol generating procedures such as cleans will no longer be available.
If you are feeling sick or experiencing any symptoms such as a sore throat, temperature, headaches, runny nose, shortness of breath, loss of sense of taste or smell, please let us know, delay your visit, and take care of yourself first.
If you have been recently tested for COVID 19 and awaiting results, we ask that you postpone your visit for 14 days or until you receive confirmation of a negative test result.
Likewise, these measures have also been taken with our staff to provide confidence to our patients that they are receiving treatment in the utmost safe environment.
Please ensure that only ONE person attends their appointment along with a carer where necessary. If it is a family appointment, we may ask members to come in one at a time, and others to wait in the car if this is practicable, in order to reduce waiting room numbers.
Face coverings/masks will need to be worn by all above the age of 12.
In addition to our current exceptional infection control standards, our trained staff have implemented even stricter safety measures for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, including patient screening processes over the phone as well as when you arrive at the practice, hand sanitiser stations before and after treatment, 1.5 metre social distancing measures as well as limiting patient numbers in our waiting room, regular (hourly) disinfection of the waiting room and temperature checks on arrival to name a few.
We would like to thank all our patients for their ongoing support and patience during these challenging times.
Goulburn Valley Dental Group has a team of dentists who will look after you and your loved ones.
We are innovative, conservative, fun, caring...so our patients tell us.
We were one of the first practices in Australia to acheive accreditation and we are proud to be leaders within our profession.
