MEDICAL AND DENTAL SERVICES
DURING COVID-19

Given the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, our team at MC Medical and Dental have decided to continue operating seven days for dental (check public holidays hours here) and six days for medical. We understand the importance of assisting our medical patients online or at the clinic and not overloading the hospital system with dental emergencies.

If you have ANY of these symptoms:

Please advise us if you have any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, gastrointestinal symptoms, AND if you have travelled overseas in the last few weeks. Also, please let us know if you have tested positive to COVID-19, or have had close contact with someone diagnosed with, or suspected of having Coronavirus. Please do not visit the clinic. Instead, call the dedicated hotline on 1800-675-398.

Unfortunately, as we are a small clinic, we are UNABLE TO OFFER COVID-19 TESTING. 

Please call Triple Zero (000) for emergencies only. For more information, please visit here.
