COVID-19 Response

March 24, 2020

Riken is working with the Australian dental association, federal government and regulators to continue to ensure everyone is kept safe in these challenging and unprecedented times.

Hello Riken Dental patients,

We are pleased to announce that Riken Dental has reopened.

It’s been a tough few week for all Australians as we’ve each played our role to help stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Thank you for being patient with us as we’ve implemented the restrictions required by Government and relevant authorities to help keep everyone healthy and safe.

With the Government’s announcement that dental practices can now deliver a range of important preventative and other treatments in addition to attending to urgent and essential dental needs, we’d like to re-book you for your postponed treatment.

Our priority remains the safety and well-being of people – our patients, our people and the community. We’ve implemented a number of safety measures to help minimise risk of COVID-19 exposure within the practice.

These include:

Please refer to the below table for an outline of treatment permitted and treatment deferred.   

Treatments Permitted:
  • Examinations
  • Simple non-invasive fillings without use of high-speed handpieces
  • Restorative procedures using high speed handpieces only provided with the use of rubber dam
  • Non-surgical extractions
  • Hand scaling (no use of ultrasonic scalers)
  • Temporomandibular dysfunction management
  • Dental procedures such as the application of topical remineralising agents e.g. fluoride
  • Orthodontic treatment
