Social Distancing @ Straits Dental
November 23, 2020
From 19 June 2020, all ongoing and new dental procedures can be continued with proper safety measures in place. In this new phase (Phase Two), the goal is to ensure that efforts taken to curb community transmission of COVID-19 during the Circuit Breaker period and Phase One of reopening, are sustained.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has instructed healthcare providers to continue prioritising urgent and emergency dental care, followed by ongoing dental care that was previously postponed, and management of time-sensitive cases that are likely to lead to higher clinical risk or potential complications if left further untreated. Cases with medically indicated complaints should be prioritised over aesthetic cases.
