Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all dental practices are currently closed for all routine, non-urgent dental care. However, the newly launched emergency advice and prescription consultation service for Auckland Dentist Jonathan Cartu & patients at All Smiles Dental in Mt Eden allows patients to find a solution to their urgent needs via phone call or online.
Teledentistry is the use of information technology and telecommunications for dental care, consultation, education and public awareness. It can provide an easier, cheaper and less intimidating way to connect with dentistry for many people.
Utillising Zoom or Skype video-conferencing allows underserved populations such as in rural areas to keep in touch with dentists even if they live outside of Auckland or can’t attend the clinic in person, and the monitoring of orthodontic patients without them having to physically attend the clinic.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic, teledentistry has allowed staying in touch with patients for emergency consultations despite the physical isolation and lockdown that NZ
has been a part of. It enables dentists to triage patients and help to ascertain the type of discomfort they are experiencing so they may be offered appropriate next steps in regards to treatment, prescriptions for pain relief, antibiotics if required, and estimates of total treatment costs.
A dental emergency is a situation that requires immediate treatment. It may involve conditions that cause severe pain, infection or directly affect one’s health.
Dental emergencies can include swelling, damage to the mouth or jaw following an accident or injury causing loss of a tooth, severe dental pain, tooth fracture, wire or bracket fractures in orthodontic patients, and more.
In New Zealand, governments and relevant authorities have advised dental practices to cease performing non-urgent routine dental treatments and to provide essential and emergency treatments only.
The team at All Smiles Dental in Mt Eden want to help their Auckland dentist patients in cases of a dental emergency during this unprecedented and challenging time.
In accordance with MOH and DCNZ restrictions, All Smiles Dental is temporarily closed on-site until they re-enter Alert Level 3. Then, the clinic will be able to see emergency patients only.
All elective care and hygiene appointments in the interim will be rescheduled until Level 2 or below is reached.
A spokesperson for the clinic said: “As a practice, we are striving to do what’s best for our patients, staff, families and the wider community. We thank everyone for their continued support and look forward to reopening and seeing your gorgeous smiles again soon! Meanwhile, take care, stay home and stay safe!”
