Update 9th May

We Are Open!
At Junction Village Dental, our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe.
The government has now eased dental service restrictions to ‘Level 1′. This means we will now be able to treat our patients again and perform dental checkups and cleans, as well as all our other services.For any enquiries, please contact our friendly team.

To keep you safe, we will be also asking all patients if they have:

  • returned from overseas or interstate travel in the past 14 days
  • felt unwell, including but not limited to symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath
  • had any contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days

If you answer YES to any of these questions, we cannot provide routine dental care and will reschedule the dental appointment for 14 days after their return from overseas, interstate or contact with a COVID-19 case, or when their symptoms have resolved and they are no longer considered a risk.

We wish all of you continued health and strength. Physical distancing, social connection! Wash hands! We can beat this together!


Update 23rd April

We will be open to see patients at level 2 restrictions on 27th April. The Prime Minister has announced a move back to Level 2 restrictions, effective from the 27th April. This means we can perform a wider range of essential dental treatment for our patients. Level 2 Restrictions Means We Can Perform:

  • Restorative procedures using high speed handpieces only provided with the use of rubber dam
