We Are Open!

At KR Dental, our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe.

The government has now eased dental service restrictions to ‘Level 1′. This means we will now be able to treat our patients again and perform dental checkups and cleans, as well as all our other services.

For any enquiries, please contact our friendly team.

To keep you safe, we will be also asking all patients if they have:

  • returned from overseas or interstate travel in the past 14 days
  • felt unwell, including but not limited to symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath
  • had any contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days

If you answer YES to any of these questions, we cannot provide routine dental care and will reschedule the dental appointment for 14 days after their return from overseas, interstate or contact with a COVID-19 case, or when their symptoms have resolved and they are no longer considered a risk.

We wish all of you continued health and strength. Physical distancing, social connection! Wash hands! We can beat this together!


About the ONLY thing on people’s minds right now is the Coronavirus. So let’s talk about it. The purpose of this notice is to keep you informed about the proactive approaches we’re taking with regards to the COVID-19 situation.

We take your health and welfare seriously. And while we’ve always been committed to sanitation and infection control, rest assured we’re taking special precautions these days. Please review our ongoing approach to ensuring our patients safety:

  • Hand sanitiser is provided for use in our reception area and throughout our practice.
  • All surfaces, equipment and adjusting tables are regularly sanitised with disinfectant.
  • Team members will continue proper hand hygiene in accordance with federal guidelines and adhere to proper cough etiquette.

We will complete a written/verbal screening process for all new and returning patients to keep clinic secure for everyone.

Please ring us to reschedule your appointment if you have flu like symptoms such as fever, runny nose, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat. We would look forward to welcoming you back once your symptoms resolve.

It is essential to advise us when booking your next appointment if;

  • you have travelled overseas within the last two weeks
  • you have been in contact with a COVID 19 patient or someone suspected of the virus
  • you have respiratory symptoms

Most of us have never experienced anything like this in our lifetime. It’s an evolving situation and we’ll keep you informed if anything should change. But for now, it’s full speed ahead, helping our patients one mouth at a time.
