Covid-19 Level 1


Nelson Dental Centre is open and continues to provide routine dental care, hygienist appointments and emergency dental treatments for patients with low risk of having COVID 19.


To keep our patients and staff safe, Nelson Dental Centre has Level 1 COVID-19 safety protocols in effect and encourages safe distancing.


At any one time we feel there are too many patients to safely keep the required distance apart, you may be asked to wait in your car until the dentist is ready for you.


       To make an appointment, or if you already have an appointment booked and are feeling unwell and would like to discuss your symptoms, please call the surgery on 03 548 4445 Monday to Thursday between the hours of 8.00am and 5.00pm and Friday’s 8.00am and 4.30pm.



Even though we are at Level, if you are using our online booking system to make an appointment we would still like you to observe the risk assessment below. If you answer No to all of the questions you are able to book. If you answer Yes to any question please call us to discuss your options.


We look forward to seeing you soon and providing you with the expert dental care you expect and NDC is known for.
