There is nothing more important than your health, which is why staying on track with your dental appointments and treatment whilst maintaining good oral hygiene is more crucial now than ever. With the recent easement of restrictions during COVID-19, local dentists are now able to provide all dental treatment for patients.

See below for 8 reasons why now is the best time to visit your dentist:

1 Open for dental appointments and dental treatment
As an essential service and with the recent easement of restrictions, dentists are open and taking appointments for patients and can perform all dental treatment.

A group of local leading dentists have also stepped up their response to emergency dental care for the community through the introduction of Central Coast Dental Emergency Service, a 24/7 hotline for patients to access emergency care across Saratoga Dental, Avoca Beach Dental, Bonnells Bay Dental, Empire Bay Dental and Warnervale Dental. This service will continue to operate due to the enormous positive response from locals.

2 Taking additional health and safety precautions
Dental practices are cleaner and more “bug free” than just about any public area. They have also further increased their clinical and patient safety within their practices. Dr Ned Restom, Practice Principal of Avoca Beach Dental reinforces that the health and safety of their team and patients is paramount explaining that they “have undertaken specific COVID-19 Infection Control Training and are stringently following guidelines from the various authorities”.

3 Importance of oral health on overall health 
Now more than ever it is important to remind everyone of the importance of achieving and maintaining optimal oral health as it directly correlates to overall health and wellness. Amidst the present challenges the local dentists are here to support you, so please do not put off a visit to the dentist, especially if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort.

4 Prevent gum disease
Attending your regular dental appointments and scheduling new appointments early is a vital way to remain proactive in managing your oral health and preventing minor issues becoming major problems down the track.

5 Alleviate pain
Is pain stopping you from getting the most out of life? The skilled and experienced dental practitioners are here to help you to improve your oral health without any suffering. Practice Principal of Warnervale Dental, Dr David Bassal states that the practice “utilises state of the art equipment and techniques to consistently deliver best practice and optimum patient outcomes. We also offer sedation services to assist anxious patents and make your dental experience even more enjoyable”.

6 Opportunity while you are working from home

Do you have missing teeth? are you unhappy with your smile? Now is the perfect time to enhance your smile. If you have been putting off dental treatment, now is the time to act.

8 Finance options available
Concerned about cost? don’t be! Many dental practices have a variety of options that may suit your needs including Zip pay and Interest Free Payment plans.

Did you know you can also pay for dental treatment using your superannuation? It is now possible to apply for the early compassionate release of your Superannuation to pay for certain dental treatment. Depending on the superannuation fund you are with, you are allowed access to a lump sum to pay out-of-pocket expenses for dental treatment for yourself or your dependents.

So, as you can see, now more than ever is a fantastic time for you and the family to visit the dentist.

Stay safe, be well and keep smiling!
