COVID-19 Guidelines

Floss Dental has a long-standing commitment to the dental care needs of our communities. Your safety is our highest priority and during this global COVID-19 pandemic, our commitment to providing you a safe and reliable place to receive care is even more important to us.

We’re happy that we are able to continue providing all of our dental services in accordance with the current guidelines from the Australian Dental Association.

In line with government direction, we have implemented extra procedures to keep our staff and patients safe.

We kindly request that patients call us to make an appointment rather than coming in to the dental clinic in person without an appointment.
Patients will be seen by appointment only.
