During the Level 4 Government shutdown we will still be available to provide you with limited urgent and emergency dental care. We are adhering to the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and the New Zealand Dental Council to keep everybody safe.
Please note the definitions of "Urgent" and "Emergency" dental treatment.
“Urgent care” includes treatment for:
Dental or soft-tissueinfections without a systemic effect.
Severe pain that cannot be controlled by medication or the patient following self-help advice.
Fractured teeth or pulpal exposure.
Adjustment or repair of dental appliances where patient health is significantly impacted.
“Dental emergencies” includes treatment for:
Trauma-including facial/oral laceration and/or dentoalveolar injuries, such as avulsion of a permanent tooth.
Oro-facial swelling that is serious and worsening.
Post-extraction bleeding that the patient is not able to control with local measures.
Dental conditions that have resulted in acute systemic illness or raised temperature as a result of dental infection.
Acute infections that are likely to exacerbate systemic medical conditions such as diabetes.
Please call us so that we can help or advise you on suitable treatment during this extra-ordinary time.
