ADASA COVID-19 Practice Resources

There is no doubt that as dental health practitioners we may feel anxious and concerned about decisions we need to make to provide the best care in these challenging and uncertain circumstances since the Coronavirus ( COVID-19) has become more widespread and is now classified as pandemic.

You are well aware that ADA has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and that the health, safety and wellbeing of the branch office staff, our members, members staff and patients and the broader community is our top priority. Whilst the number of cases in South Australia appear small in number, the recent spike of cases reported this week reinforces the importance of our contingency planning that is underway, and that regular updates are provided so that you are fully informed.

ADASA have made COVID-19 resources and templates available for you to download below and assist in managing your Practice as detailed below.

Please ensure that you take advantage of these valuable resources which will be updated as information comes to hand.

ADASA are committed to assisting members and ensuring that we work together during these difficult times.
