What Does Covid 19 Mean, and What Does Level 3 Look Like For Dentistry?


Jan 25th 2022

To our wonderful current and new patients,

We hope you are keeping well, and have had an awesome summer break! We also wanted to give you an update on what Traffic Light Red means for us over these next weeks. We can do check-ups, hygiene visits (incl. full polish), routine dental work, consults, cosmetic dentistry treatments and general dentistry.

Please note that ALL our staff are fully vaccinated and have been since July 2021 (and have had booster shots too!).
In addition, along with scupulous hygiene practices which are in keeping to our standard cross infection control practices, we also have installed high pressure extractor fans to provide you with the cleanest air possible. However, this means our surgery rooms are kept quite cold, so please bring an extra layer to help you keep warm during your appointment.

We take very seriously the spread of COVID-19 and are committed to doing our part to prevent it. Best practices for managing this virus (cross infection control) are in complete alignment with our standard protocol for how we manage and prevent all infection for all patients at all times. Please let us know if you are feeling unwell or experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, awaiting test results or think you have been exposed.

Also, due to Covid-19 resitrctions during red light, please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible to minimize cross over in the reception area.  If you are going to be over 10 minutes late from your appointment time, we may not be able to see you. Please wear a mask in our reception area. We also ask that if you need to bring a support person with you, please limit it to 1 person per patient.

If you would like a booking, please phone us first on 09 376 4374. 

Online bookings are also open.

If you wish to discuss any cosmetic cases with Matt, this can also be done in person. 

All our staff are double vaccinated and have been since July 2021 (plus have had booster shots too).

Thanks for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Why you should see an Oral Health Therapist – regularly

You brush regularly, so why would you need to see an oral health therapist? Well, maybe no matter how much you brush, you still have dragon breath. Or when you smile in a mirror, all you see is yellow grinning back. You might have the occasional bleeding gum, or even a cancer that you don’t even know is there.

Here are a few things a professional Oral Health Therapist can do for you.
