COVID-19 Emergency Dental Care

Scroll down for directory of open dental practices.

As a result of the COVID-19 lock-down, there are strict restrictions on the provision of dental care in New Zealand.  Dentists are only able to provide limited urgent and emergency care for the treatment of dental accidents, severe infection (including facial swelling) and the relief of pain. 

WHAT QUALIFIES AS A DENTAL EMERGENCY?

  • Toothache, infections or problems in the mouth that can’t be managed by medication and/or result in a raised temperature or a generalised feeling of sickness.
  • Trauma to a tooth/teeth that causes substantial tooth fracture and mobility, and/or to the lips/face or gums that requires treatment.
  • Swelling of the face/neck/throat.
  • Locked jaw.
  • Infections in the mouth of a diabetic, someone who is immuno-compromised or someone with rheumatic heart disease.
  • An oral appliance that would cause oral harm if not adjusted. 

 

IN THE FIRST INSTANCE phone your own dentist / clinic who may be able to triage you over the phone.  

Telephone advice and support is available and it is not always necessary to attend a dental practice.  Attendance at a practice is only permitted for the the dental emergencies listed above and the dental services to manage these issues are limited. 

At this point in time, we understand that the following dental clinics are open and able to provide emergency dental care during the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 Lockdown.
