Following recommendations from the authorities, the Central Coast dental leaders have increased their response to the need for emergency dental as a result of lockdown measures. They now offer a dedicated hotline which patients can contact at any time if they require emergency dental care and they will then be triaged appropriately to their closest dentist for treatment.
Dr Ned Restom, Founder and Principal Dentist of the group is passionate and highly committed “to doing all we can during this stressful time. We are here to support the community, so whether you’re an existing patient or new, if you need emergency care, we will do our best to help you”.
To enable effective management of the hotline service, the dedicated dentists request that patients SMS the hotline number to communicate. Practice Principal of Warnervale Dental, Dr David Bassal explains that “we want to offer a service that is accessible 24/7 to Central Coast patients needing emergency treatment and care. To enable us to triage quickly, we ask that patients text their name, postcode and dental issue. We will then respond as soon as we can and organise appropriate care” says Bassal.
During this time, infection control is of paramount importance. “We stringently follow and comply with the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and AHPRA approved standards of infection control and are also taking additional precautions. We have all completed specific COVID-19 Infection Control training and we have introduced further steps to ensure our team and our community’s health and safety at all times.”
The local dental group will continue to serve our community as well as keep us updated on the rapidly changing environment. Stay safe and keep well.
