Children’s Community Dental Service (Auckland Regional Dental Service) during COVID-19 Alert Level 1:
Some of our dental clinics will be open during Alert Level 1. We will be offering appointments to children with the most urgent dental care needs. Our staff will be in contact with the parents/caregivers of these children to book appointments.
We will contact parents/caregivers of children who are due for their routine appointments in due course. We are unable to put a timeframe on this at present, which means there may be delays in routine appointments.
If your child is in pain, or if you have any immediate concerns about their teeth, please phone 0800 TALK TEETH to speak to one of our therapists. The therapist may offer an appointment for your child if required.
We kindly ask that you do not present to the clinics if you don’t have an appointment booked. This is because we need to ask all parents/caregivers and patients COVID-19 questions over the phone before booking an appointment. This is to protect our staff and other patients in the clinic.
If you have any questions, please email ARDS@waitematadhb.govt.nz.
Thank you for your understanding and support during this time.
Kind regards, The Children’s Community Dental Service.
