Premier announces eased dental restrictions

Dental restrictions have been eased in metropolitan Melbourne.

We are pleased with the announcement from Premier Daniel Andrews this afternoon that dentists can recommence non-urgent services in metropolitan Melbourne tomorrow with a COVIDSafe plan in place.

We have been in discussions with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) this afternoon to clarify today’s announcement. DHHS has confirmed that this second step information is currently the only published advice for the dental profession. Therefore our advice, which aligns with today's announcements, is that dentists in metropolitan Melbourne can now move to ADA Level 1 dental restrictions.
