Mandatory pre-appointment covid-19 screening
Brisbane Smile Centre is continuing to complete dental treatment in line with the Australian Dental Association’s recommendations through the covid-19 period.
This means that Brisbane Smile Centre can provide our patients with the full range of treatments and services, provided that our patients meet the criteria for being “low risk” of having contracted/being exposed to COVID-19. This restriction is for the safety and security of all our patients, our staff and the community.
We kindly ask you to call us to reschedule for a later date if you answer YES to any of the questions below:
- Are you awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test?
- Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine for any reason (examples include, but are not limited to, being identified as a contact in contact tracing, or having been to a designated hotspot or exposure site)?
- Do you have a fever (38 degrees or more) OR a history of fever in the last 14 days OR feel unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms including but not limited to cough, shortness of breath, sore throat OR loss of taste or smell?
- Have you had any contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
What to expect on arrival at your appointment
Screening: On arrival, one of our team undertakes a simple, non-contact temperature test.
Check in Qld App: Brisbane Smile Centre is participating in the use of the Check In Qld App. Whilst not mandatory in dentistry, we are encouraging patients to participate as it assists contact tracers if required.
Social/Physical Distancing: In the public areas of the practice, we are ensuring social and physical distancing of individuals and family units. To assist us in managing social distancing, we kindly ask you to attend alone or bring minimal accompanying persons with you to your appointment.
Additional Infection Control Precautions: Brisbane Smile Centre has always and will continue to maintain the highest level of infection control procedures. As an Accredited Dental practice, we must meet the strict National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards. We ask you to please use the hand sanitiser provided on entry and exit of the treatment room.
Thank you for your understanding in ensuring we are providing a COVID-19 Safe Environment
