October Long Weekend 2021

October Long Weekend 2021

We are closed for the Monday 4 October public holiday.

We will be open again at 8am on Tuesday 5 October 2021. Refreshed and recharged and ready to meet your dental needed. We are excited to be able to offer all our treatments now that lockdown restrictions have been lifted from dental services.

Are dentists opening during lockdown?

Yes. Effective of Tuesday 5 October we are able to perform all treatments.

My appointment was cancelled/moved – what should I do?

If your appointment was cancelled or moved please get in touch. Due to the sudden easing of restrictions for dental treatment we have availability sooner. You can make an appointment on line or by phoning our reception staff.

Is there anything you should do differently?

Yes. We still need patients to practice common sense when attending for their appointments. Please ensure that you are in good health before attending your appointment. We remind you that if you have any of symptoms such as a fever, sore throat, breathlessness, cough or fatigue please contact us to reschedule your appointment. This also includes if you have been in contact with a suspected case of COVID-19.

The wearing of masks is compulsory while attending Canberra Dental Care. The dentist will advise you when you can remove your mask.

We require all patients to check in via the CBR app. Sanitiser is available and required when you enter the practice. When you enter the surgery we have additional procedures in place such as mouthwash and further hand sanitiser.

If you need to make an appointment, our on line service is always open. Alternatively our friendly reception staff are available on Tuesday. If you’ve had a dental emergency over the long weekend, the best option is to ring and speak to our reception staff first thing on Tuesday. We have some emergency slots available each day which are not available to book via the website.

This Labour Day Public Holiday weekend might be a little different this year but we hope you are able to spend time with family and friends.

As always, stay safe and healthy and remember to wash your hands!
