Victorian dentists welcome easing of dental restrictions
The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) welcomes the announcement today to lift the restriction to provide only urgent dental care when Melbourne moves to the Second Step on the road map on 28 September 2020.
When Stage 4 restrictions were introduced, one of the requirements was that only urgent dental treatment could be performed. While this was seen as a necessary step to restrict the movement of people at the peak of the pandemic in Victoria, the continuation of restrictions had the potential to impact on dental health.
