How COVID-19 will affect your orthodontic treatment

Dear patients and our local community,

As of Monday 4th May, the Federal Government and health regulatory authorities have announced further easing of restrictions in the dental and health sectors. We are now back open with full service. Please do remember we are still practicing social distancing. Please be considerate of others. If you do feel the slightest bit unwell, please get tested or self-isolate and postpone your appointment.

To our patients, we will be contacting you over the next couple of days to start scheduling appointments. Please bare with us, we have a backlog of appointments to reschedule, but will do our best to see you as soon as possible.

Please notify us before you come in, if you have been overseas, or have been in contact with a known COVID-19 patient in the last 14 days, or are feeling unwell.

We would like to ask our patients to keep up with their oral hygiene with good tooth brushing. 

For those with braces:
– We recommend using some dental wax to cover anything annoying or scratchy.
– If the wire at the back has popped out and is digging into the gum, please try using pliers to guide the back end of the wire and thread it through the last brace, or try using nail clippers to trim the sharp end. If you are unable to, please contact us.

We hope everyone is staying safe and well, and being considerate of others and their wellbeing.

— Just Orthodontics Team
