      Dental Media Alert

      NSW Health is recommending that patients who have had invasive dental procedures at four private Sydney clinics over the past several years see their GP for testing for blood-borne viruses.

      The advice follows a Dental Council of NSW and NSW Health investigation of the clinics, which has identified multiple infection control breaches have likely occurred over an extended period. 

       The four surgeries are The Gentle Dentist, located in both Campsie and the Sydney Central Business District (CBD), and Dr Robert Craige Starkenburg's clinics at Bondi Junction and Surry Hills.

       NSW Health has established a public information line staffed to assist patients of either practice who may have questions on 1800 610 344.

       

      Please refer to the NSW Health website for further information on this matter.
