Coronavirus Prevention Update

Preventing Dental Emergencies Amidst the Coronavirus  (COVID- 19) Chaos

COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Dental Emergencies Alert Notice

New strategies My Family Dental are taking with COVID-19 Infection Prevention, and to help prevent dental emergencies across the local community.

We would like all of our patients to know that we are here to provide support and guidance with your dental needs during the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 pandemic.

There is a growing concern that minor dental issues may develop into more complex emergency treatments as patients sit on the fence about attending their dental appointment, and delay important treatment.

My Family Dental teams have taken strict safety measures to prevent the risk of COVID-19 infection, and with these precautions, including maximum infection control protocols, we can remain available to attend our patients’ dental needs, and help prevent otherwise avoidable dental emergencies.

More information and details about our new COVID-19 infection control policies can be found in our Patient Alert Notices at COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Dental Emergencies Alert Notice, which will be updated as the coronavirus situation continues to develop. It is important to contact your dentist to discuss any concerns you have about attending your regular dental appointments, and allow us to prioritise your needs.
