As of Monday 27 April, dentistry has been rolled back to level 2 restrictions. The Prime Minister, in conjunction with the National Cabinet made this announcement at a press conference last week. The restrictions follow the framework presented to the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) by the Australian Dentistry Association.

Level 2, according to these guidelines allows for the provision of dental treatments that are unlikely to generate aerosols, or where aerosols generated have the presence of minimal saliva or blood due to the use of a rubber dam.

This is great news, and though contingent on the continued availability of PPE, a sign of a gradual return to normal for the dental industry in Australia.
