At Scott Makiol Biodentistry, we consider the safety and health of our patients and staff as our utmost priority. Given the current global COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking extra measures to help slow the spread, such as:

  • Encouraging patients to use the hand sanitiser located at our reception area
  • Requiring any staff who have been overseas to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival in Australia
  • Continuing to follow our usual high standard of sanitation and infection control, including the wiping down of all surfaces following a dental appointment, as well as the wearing of masks throughout all procedures.

Given the dynamic nature of the situation, rest assured that we are closely monitoring and following guidelines as set by the Department of Health. For the latest advice, information and resources about COVID-19, please call the National Coronavirus Help Line on 1800 020 080 or visit the website www.health.gov.au for up-to-date information. Please keep Triple Zero (000) for emergencies only.
