At Kingsway Dental, we consider the safety and health of our patients and staff as our utmost priority. Given the current global COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking extra measures to help arrest the spread such as:
· Encouraging patients to use the hand sanitiser located at our reception area
· Temporarily removing items that may be difficult to disinfect such as toys
· Requiring any staff who have been overseas to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival in Australia
· Continuing to follow a high standard in infection control
Given the dynamic nature of the situation, rest assured that we are closely monitoring and following guidelines as set by the Department of Health. If you have questions or concerns regarding COVID-19, please call the Department of Health and Human Services Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398 or visit https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/diseases/Pages/coronavirus.aspx for up-to-date info. Please keep Triple Zero (000) for emergencies only.
What is COVID-19?
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is the disease caused by the new virus SARS-CoV-2.
