A note about COVID-19 – Update 21/03/2022

Lucas Dental Care is following all government guidelines and are doing our best to ensure the safety of all our staff, patients and the wider community. This includes implementing social distancing policies at our practice where possible, and maintaining a high degree of infection control. The situation is fluid and at times we are given government information with only a day’s notice. We thank our patients and community for your patience.

Like many other industries we are feeling the affects of covid on our small business, so please be patient with our staff as we work through our valued patients appointments.

In regards to general anesthetics for children, these are currently going ahead but there is a back log due to the pause on elective surgeries in 2021 and early 2022. If your child requires a general anaesthetic we will triage him or her accordingly. Any concerned parent or caregiver is welcome to discuss any enquiries with our experienced staff.
