Ivanhoe Dental Clinic Fully Open For All Patients (press release)

Ivanhoe VIC, Australia – May 12, 2020 — One of Ivanhoe’s top-rated dental clinics is pleased to announce that their practice is now able to see patients for all types of treatment. In the wake of COVID-19, many dental practices were closed or could only offer emergency dental treatment.

The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) has now approved the move from Level 2 to Level 1 dental service restrictions from 8 May 2020.

When Dr Shehan Warusevitane, the owner of Dentists of Ivanhoe, heard about the easing of restrictions, he remarked “We were one of a select few practices around Ivanhoe that remained open during the pandemic offering emergency dental services. Unfortunately our patients who were planning on coming in for a check and clean, or even looking forward to having some cosmetic dental work had to postpone their visit. Today’s news means that we are able to provide ALL dental services like we used to as long as you are feeling well and healthy and have not been in contact with any suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19”

According to the Australian Dental Association (ADA), dental practices already operate with a high degree of health protection. Even though restrictions have been eased down to level 1, Dr Shehan’s practice will still be carrying out additional health protection measures including social distancing in the waiting room.

Dr Shehan adds “Our top priority is to the safety and health of our patients. When a patient comes in for their appointment, we want them to feel safe, so we have implemented best-in-class sterilisation and cleaning procedures above and beyond the guidelines.”

Based on the number of phone calls received in the past several weeks, people in and around Ivanhoe are anxious to resume, as close as possible, a normal routine, including regular visits to their dentist.

In summary, Dr Shehan reiterates “Dentists of Ivanhoe is 100% open for business and we’re able to see all patients for any type of dental treatment. If you have been putting off any cosmetic dentistry work such as Invisalign or dental veneers, you can now call our practice or make an appointment through our website to meet with one of our experienced dentists.”
