19 Mar 2020 Your health and wellbeing is our number one priority. In light of the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have recently put several measures into place so that we can continue to provide a safe environment for you and all of our patients at FirstBite Dental. Please find below our action plan, which will be reviewed on a regular basis. Hygiene Action Plan As a QIP Accredited dental practice, we have always maintained the strictest hygiene protocol in the industry. As part of the NSQHS Standards, we have always implemented hygiene measures to help prevent infection to both staff and patients. You will notice several additional hand sanitisers in the clinic. Please utilise these upon entering the clinic. The staff at FirstBite will be completing additional daily cleans to ensure sterilisation more regularly. Health Action Plan If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, please seek medical attention prior to returning to the clinic. Overseas Action Plan This policy applies to all patients and all staff: We ask that you do not attend the clinic for 14 days following arrival back into Australia. General Information Up-to-date travel advice for those planning to travel outside Australia can be found by visiting www.smarttraveller.gov.au.
