Novel Coronavirus COVID-19: Update on Dental Practice

Updated 27/03/2020, Level 3

Since our most recent novel coronavirus (COVID-19) update, we would like to advise that due to the dynamic nature of the situation the best way to keep appraised of our services and opening hours is:

Telephone: 0398990148 | Web: www.landaledental.com.au | Email: enquiry@landaledental.com.au | Facebook: www.facebook.com/landaledental/

Both state and federal governments have classified dentistry as essential services. Maintaining the provision of emergency and urgent dental care will allow dentists to continue to provide high quality care for their patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments. This should include management of conditions that are likely to require emergency care if left untreated.

Our clinic is open with limited hours and is following the guidelines & recommendations of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Victorian Government. Landale Dental is still in an excellent position to continue to provide dental services. We have been keeping abreast of the evolving situation since the start. We are members of the Australian Dental Association and are an accredited practice. Our systems and protocols have kept us in good stead and allowed us to adapt quickly without disruption to services. However, there will be a triage process, limitation of services and hours, and strict screening for suspected COVID-19 and for community members more vulnerable to COVID-19 .

So, in addition to our previous update, we are performing additional measures and restricting services to emergency and urgent care. Priority will be given to existing patients. We will be contacting pre-existing patients booking prior to their planned visits if affected. Online booking and walk-in bookings will be restricted so it is best to contact us directly by phone or email.

For Our Patients:
1.      If you are felling unwell (especially symptoms of Diarrhoea,  Cough, Shortness of Breath or Fever), please do not enter the clinic, instead please call, cancel and change your appointment time upon your recovery.

2.      If you have travelled or have been in contact with someone who has travelled overseas in the past 14 days, please do not enter the clinic rather call, cancel and postpone your appointment time.

3.      We would appreciate you washing your hands and using the hand sanitiser provided, upon both arriving and leaving the practice. Other hygiene etiquette advice will be provided on arrival.

4.      If you fall into any of these categories, we will be able to provide advice on how to access urgent dental care should you need it.

5.      If you have any respiratory condition or are immune-compromised or are over 60 years of age we can assist you in deferring any non-urgent dental care.

Wishing for the best to you and your loved ones.

 

Updated 20/03/2020, Level 2

In view of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) issues, we would like to update you on our clinic status & additional procedures implemented in relation to the virus, in order to protect you, our team and the community's health.

Landale Dental is still in an excellent position to continue to provide dental services. We have been keeping abreast of the evolving situation since the start. We are members of the Australian Dental Association and are an accredited practice. Our systems and protocols have kept us in good stead and allowed us to adapt quickly without disruption to services. Our clinic is open and will remain open and follow the guidelines & recommendations of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Victorian Government. We have many patients that still need assistance with their dental conditions and maintaining oral health and our responsibility is to all our patients at this time.

Australia has some of the most rigorous infection prevention and control standards in the world. The situation overseas, while sharing some similarities, are not identical to the one in Australia. So, we are putting more weight on information and resources for Australia. The Federal Health Minister's office has confirmed that essential health services, like dentistry will continue to operate as normal.

We are still operating as usual, however:
-       if you are feeling unwell or have travelled overseas in the past 14 days we ask that you contact us by telephone to reschedule your appointment.

-       in additional to our strict protocols in our treatment rooms and clinic in general, we have implemented these additional measures:

For Our Patients:
1.      If you are felling unwell (especially symptoms of Diarrhoea,  Cough, Shortness of Breath or Fever), please do not enter the clinic, instead please call, cancel and change your appointment time upon your recovery.

2.      If you have travelled or have been in contact with someone who has travelled overseas in the past 14 days, please do not enter the clinic rather call, cancel and postpone your appointment time for one-month time.

3.      We would appreciate you washing your hands and using the hand sanitiser provided, upon both arriving and leaving the practice. Other hygiene etiquette advice will be provided on arrival.

4.      If you fall into any of these categories, we will be able to provide advice on how to access urgent dental care should you need it.

5.      If you have any respiratory condition or are immune-compromised or are over 75 year of age we can assist you in deferring any non-urgent dental care.

In Our Clinic:
1.      Common area environmental surface (for example: door handles, waiting rooms chairs, tables, reception desk, etc) will be sanitised regularly.

2.      Anti-microbial pre-rinses will also be utilised in addition to our already stringent disinfecting protocols in treatment rooms. All staff will be using personal protective equipment (including face masks) during consults, as usual.

3.      We have arranged our clinic's schedule and patient lounge with extra space between patient chairs and we would appreciate if this distance could be maintained.

4.      We have removed all magazines, and toys in the patient lounge the clinic as a precautionary measure.

5.      We will be requesting contactless payment transactions where possible, but additional hygiene practices will be maintained if that mode of transaction is not possible.

The "State of Emergency" announced by the State Government of Victoria on 16/03/2020 does not impact dental clinics or routine dental practice. These measures are designed to enforce the recent restrictions on meetings of more than 500 people and self-isolation requirements for anyone returning from overseas.

We will continue to monitoring the situation and will update you on any changes which will also be published on our social media (https://www.facebook.com/landaledental/). A very useful reference website is https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert.

Landale Dental celebrates World Oral Health Day

Landale Dental in Box Hill are excited to celebrate World Oral Health Day on March 20th 2019! This year, the annual event run by the FDI: World Dental Federation is focusing on the notion of the mouth serving as a window to the body and reflecting overall general health. Healthy mouth = Healthy body.

No matter what stage of life you are in, healthy teeth and gums are one of the prerequisites to having a healthy body and maintaining a quality of life. Your dentist is one of the most important people in assessing your teeth, gums and mouth to help detect and prevent any serious diseases.

Sun damage to the lips, smoking, alcohol and other factors can increase the risk of mouth cancer – our dentists are in a prime position to perform cancer checks of your entire mouth.


There is strong evidence that proves gum disease is a risk factor for diabetes and heart disease. Early detection and management of gum disease by your dentist can therefore improve your overall health and reduce complications associated with heart disease and diabetes.


Did you know our dentists can also screen and assist in the diagnosis and treatment of jaw pain and sleep apnoea, which is a high risk disease affecting the population?


The mouth acts as a window to screen for other diseases; and early detection and management can be life changing. Too often young children present with advanced tooth decay and the subsequent tooth abscess, swelling and fever opens the door to further health implications which can only be managed under a hospital setting. Tooth decay is preventable with a healthy diet, good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist once your child’s first tooth appears. Practicing good oral hygiene and maintaining visits with your dentist to receive personalized information, can contribute to a lifetime of improved well-being.
It is never too early or too late to start looking after your mouth. Your body will thank you for it!


Landale Dental in Box Hill are active members of the Australian Dental Association and have serviced the area for 18 years. Landale Dental in Box Hill is excited to be promoting this great oral health initiative with our patients and the wider community.


If it’s been a while since you’ve seen a dentist or you feel you may have a concern, then schedule that appointment.
