Update – 16th June 2021
To our lovely patients and families:
We use SafeWA at both our practices, SafeWA is a digital COVID-19 contact register for non-patients and accompanying persons. If you are a patient we will have a record of your attendance at the practice when you check in with our receptionist. Visitors and accompanying persons can check in using the Safe WA app, or by writing in our paper contact register if you are unable to sign in digitally.
Also, to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible, we kindly ask that during your visits to our practice, where possible, parents and siblings remain outside, with patients only to enter the clinic. If accompanying persons have to enter the clinic, we ask that you remain in our waiting area. Do discuss with our staff any concerns you have with this arrangement. Remember to observe social distancing and practise good hand hygiene at all times. Our practice operates with strict infection prevention and control standards to minimise any risk to patients and staff.
If you’re feeling sick or experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, please ring and let us know, delay your visit and take care of yourself first.
We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation, you have been really great and we truly appreciate your effort in complying with these restrictions.
Good Toothbrushing Award
Our practice has a ‘Good Toothbrushing Award’ programme. Every month, Dr Pang and our clinical staff will select the patient who has the best oral hygiene and we reward them with a very special Good Toothbrushing Award. This consists of a gift voucher and your (first) name on display in the waiting room. More importantly, you will have started down the road of good oral hygiene for life. Come on, try and get your name on the monthly winner list.
Our latest winner, for May 2021 is Elley, and for April 2021 it was Gemma. The winner for March 2021 was Chloe. The winner for February 2021 was Callum, and for January 2021 it was Alex. Congratulations Elley, Gemma, Chloe, Callum and Alex! Great effort, keep up the good brushing!
Waiting room at our Whitfords Clinic
Have you seen the changes to our waiting room furniture? We have decided to give the place a little bit of colour, so out with the old black waiting room chairs and in with some colourful blue, grey and white chairs. The chairs not only look better, they are also easier to wipe down and keep clean. Come in and check them out!
iTero Intraoral Scanner
Another addition to our practice is our new iTero intraoral scanner. Dr Pang and our dental therapists have started using it recently, after undergoing training and a clinical workshop on utilising it in orthodontics, specifically in relation to Invisalign treatment. The scanner is used to scan our patients’ teeth and surrounding structure instead of taking dental impressions using a ‘tray’. Our intraoral scanner has the capability to capture 3D accuracy of the entire dentition in high resolution, creating records of the hard and soft tissue. This helps Dr Pang in diagnosis and treatment planning and is an important advance in our capabilities. We are very excited about this latest bit of technology to come our way!
