Please give us a call if you want to discuss your oral health or to simply get some more reassurance about the safety measures we’ve put in place to operate under the new traffic light system.
This is an unusual time for everyone and we’re here to put you at ease.
Our layered COVID-19 protection approach includes using multiple mitigation strategies, including screening, physical distancing, wearing face masks, hand hygiene, frequent cleaning and decontamination measures, staff vaccinations and improvements to building ventilation has been made to keep our staff, patients and their whanau safe.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
We’re looking forward to seeing you again!
When you do visit us, we ask that you follow a few simple steps. Our friendly team will explain everything to you when you book but please read below to become familiar with the processes:
- We continue to screen patients for any COVID-19 symptoms before booking, and when you arrive for your appointment.
- We may ask you to arrive as close as possible to your appointment time.
- You must wear a mask/face covering before entering the practice and scan or sign in on arrival using the QR Code in the NZ COVID Tracer App, as per Government guidelines.
- Please ‘hand sanitise’ on arrival and departure from the clinic.
ALL team members are fully vaccinated against COVID-19
- Our staff undertake regular cleaning of surfaces and high-touch surfaces (door handles, chair arms, reception counter etc.) with detergent wipes.
ALL surgeries are equipped with individual in-ceiling energy efficient mechanical ventilation systems to improve air circulation rates with increased air changes per hour (10-12 ACH). This means stale contaminated air inside the surgery is constantly removed and replaced with sufficient quantity of fresh purified air at negative airflow. We have sought ventilation specialist advise on how to best achieve recommended air changes.
- We have changed the way we work to practise 2 metre physical distancing wherever possible and practical (between staff; between staff and patients; and patients and patients). Sometimes this may mean asking you to wait in your car until your appointment time or when we are ready and escorting you directly to the surgery, where possible.
