How to wear a Face Mask

There is a correct way to wear a face mask. We invite you to view this excellent video by the St John’s Ambulance Australia on the correct application and disposal of a surgical face mask. It may help you more easily navigate the safe use of your mask!



Understanding how to use your face mask is important. Knowing what to do, what not to do and why will help you be better protected when you are going to wear a face mask during this pandemic.

At Melbourne Dentistry, we can safely dispose of your disposable mask when you commence your appointment at the practice. We will then provide you with a new disposable mask to wear home after your appointment, should you need one.

If you are using a re-usable cloth mask, we are able to provide you with a clear plastic clip lock bag for the safe and hygienic storage of your mask while you are having your appointment, if you do not have one of your own.

Should you need any further COVID-19 information regarding dental care please view our COVID-19 Information page here. and/or advice or information on wearing or obtaining a mask, please contact us on 9650 0033.
