We understand that this is a difficult time for all, and we would like to offer you continued support where we can. The various regulatory health bodies have issued strict guidance on how we, as dental professionals, can support our patients during the outbreak, particularly the criteria on face-to-face contact with patients to minimise the risk of transmission.

During this unprecedented time, we are offering complimentary dental advice and telephone consultations to new and existing patients to help put your mind at ease and encourage you to continue with good oral health routines at home.

If you have any questions, concerns or would like some reassurance, please email Dr Saul Konviser at [email protected]

Keeping yourself and your family healthy

To help keep your dental health on track and minimise transmission between family members, here are a few dental tips to implement at home:

  • Keep toothbrushes separate from those belonging to other family members, and of course, please do not share toothbrushes.
  • Store toothbrushes head down in a mouthwash containing Hydrogen Peroxide such as Peroxyl (available from most pharmacies)
  • Before brushing wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds and rinse toothbrush under hot running water prior to use.
  • Use separate toothpaste tubes per person where possible, or apply to a clean surface and swipe off – do not apply directly from tube to brush.
  • Spit your toothpaste; do not rinse away the protective qualities of your toothpaste.
  • Disinfect surfaces after brushing and spitting.
