Register of emergency dentists released by ADA

With most people stuck at home and sugary treats one of our few indulgences in the absence of parties and restaurant meals, the Australian Dental Association is urging people to look after their teeth even more carefully as COVID-19 transforms society and our lives.

“Because of the current restrictions in force on general dental treatment including regular preventative care such as check-ups and hygiene treatments, people need to be very mindful of what they eat,” ADA president Dr Carmelo Bonanno said.

“This especially relates to their sugar intake … during COVID-19, which could be with us for some time to come.”

For those needing a dentist at any time during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ADA has updated its Find a Dentist function on its website to help people find dentists still providing emergency services. 

Patients with existing dental appointments should contact their dentist to confirm whether the appointment can proceed or needs to be postponed. Patients with a dental emergency should call their dentist to seek advice before attending the practice.

You may be able to be treated at your usual surgery, where infection control procedures remain stringent.
