COVID-19 Update February 2021

Covid-19 Update – 13th Feb 2021

The Victorian Government has imposed a state-wide Stage 4 lockdown, with restrictions coming into effect from 11.59pm on the 12th of Feb until 11.59pm Wednesday 17th Feb.

During this time, the government has indicated only certain dental emergencies can be managed within the private dental practice.

These include –

  • patients with obvious facial swelling due to infection
  • facial trauma
  • severe unrelenting pain


This clarification was received only hours before the lockdown began.  If you have a dental appointment already scheduled during the aforementioned period – which does not fall into the above categories – we will be in touch to reschedule your booking.

Thanking you for your understanding.
