David Foskett Dentist

Below are some of the main ways we will be making it safe to provide you with treatment during this time:

  • Careful screening of all people attending for appointments.
  • Masks must be worn until you are asked to remove them in the treatment room.
  • All staff have been fully vaccinated with three doses of Covid-19 vaccine.
  • We have top quality PPE including fit tested N-95 level masks to protect you and our staff.
  • We have installed a very high-volume extraction fan system in the surgery which powerfully removes room air directly outside the building. This achieves in excess of 15 “Air changes per hour” (In a normally ventilated room there are an average of only 3-4 air changes per hour). That means that the air in the surgery is constantly being changed.
    Monitoring of the Carbon Dioxide levels in the surgery has shown that the ventilation is optimal
  • We have installed medical grade HEPA 13 air filters which are capable of removing virus particles from the air if they are present. The sealed filters remove particles down to 0.1 microns in size and provide additional protection against airborne infection.
  • You may have seen in the past the vigorous cleaning of the surgery that takes place after every patient leaves. The medical grade detergent and disinfectant we use on the chair and all surgery surfaces is TGA approved and kills a wide range of microorganisms including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 virus). All instruments that cannot be disposed of are autoclaved to reprocess them and that sterilization process easily kills the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
  • Over the past few months, you will all be aware that we have been getting you to use a mouthwash immediately before your treatment. Research shows us that a pre procedure mouth rinse significantly reduces the risk of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) virus.
  • If the virus is widely present in the community, then Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT) will become part of life for all of us. When that time comes, we propose to test all staff regularly to reduce the possibility of one of us having an undetected asymptomatic infection that might pose a risk to others.

We would be grateful if you could help us to maintain a safe environment in the following ways:

  • Please do not attend for an appointment if you are feeling unwell, particularly if you have a cough, sore throat, fever, runny or stuffy nose, headache or gastro symptoms.
  • Please do not attend if you are a close contact of someone who has symptoms of, or is a confirmed case of Covid-19.
  • Please do not attend if you are isolating or awaiting results of a Covid-19 test
  • Please use the hand sanitizer provided upon arrival.

Evidence from the UK, Europe and the USA where they have been continuing to provide routine dental treatment through the ups and downs of the pandemic, is that with the above strategies in place we can continue to provide your treatment safely and effectively through the next stage of our collective COVID journey.
