At Level 1 restrictions, we are operating just about as normal!

On May 9th we were informed that we are allowed to operate at Level 1 restrictions! This means if you’re assessed as a low risk patients, we can provide regular dental care for you. We can now provide checkups and cleans, xrays, fillings, tooth extractions,  tooth whitening (bleaching), crowns, veneers and bridges, dentures as usual. Because we’re essential healthcare providers, we never closed during the coronavirus lockdown. We saw all dental emergencies including toothaches, pains, broken teeth and fillings, extractions and abscesses. Our mission is to ensure we do everything we can to relieve pain and discomfort professionally and with care.

At level 1 restrictions, we need to strictly screen all patients that we see.

We are able to see you for our usual range of dental treatments, providing you are feeling 100% well (NO sore throat, coughing, sneezing, temperature etc), no travel history, no contact with anyone suspected, tested or confirmed with COVID19, If you’re not feeling well, please #stayhome and call your GP for a telehealth consultation – don’t attend their office.

We are performing physical distancing and increased sanitation, including

  • Please attend with a maximum of one other person – ideally just by yourself. We may ask you to wait in your car if our building has too many people.
  • We usually lock our front door – please wait outside until called in.
  • Alcohol hand sanitiser for your use
  • We prefer contactless payments (cards not cash)

Tim

Tim is a slightly strange (in a good way) person who would rather spend all day under a blanket playing Playstation with his dog Hannah. Except there's also this "day job" thing where he actually enjoys talking and relating to his patients at Verdant Dental - creating healthier, happier smiles with a wonderful team to make the days fly by!
