UPDATE 5 JULY 2021: Masks are no longer mandatory for health care settings and personal care services.

Face Masks Now Mandatory

  • The SA Government last night issued updated advice regarding mask wearing requirements for health settings: “From 29 June 2021, all people in health care settings must wear a mask (covering mouth and nose) at all times when in the physical presence of other people on the premises.”
  • Face masks must be worn by all patients attending Adelaide Hills Family Dental upon entering the building and in the waiting room. If you do not have a mask, please ask Reception and we can provide one.

COVID Safe Check-In

  • The South Australian Government is introducing COVID SAfe Check-In, to enhance contact tracing and keep our community COVID safe. We recommend all patients check in on arrival with the MyGovSA COVID Safe App. You can download the mySA GOV app using your smart phone. In the mySA GOV app, select the COVID SAfe Check-In tile when you arrive at Adelaide Hills Family Dental, and follow the prompts to scan our unique QR code and check in. Those unable to do so can sign in with pen/paper form on the front desk.

Business as Usual

  • All dental services and appointments available as normal. Please call our friendly reception team today on (08) 8391 4100 to schedule your next check-up.
