Dear patients of Amazing Smiles,
Yes! Our dental clinics remain open for Emergency and Urgent appointments. As a result of the problematic spread and issues surrounding Covid-19, Amazing Smiles have unfortunately been forced to make drastic changes to our daily operations.
From recent Federal Government announcements, Dentists are now servicing under Level 3 Restrictions. This is in accordance with the Australian Dental Association (ADA) combined with the regulations administered by the Australian Department of Health. This unfortunately means for the moment, our clinics may only service ‘Dental Emergency and Urgent‘ appointments defined by the ADA.
Our clinics are still OPEN to attend to any queries via Phone, Email and Form Submissions. Please contact your nearest Amazing Smiles clinic for any pricing and treatment questions that you may have for the near future.
For an Emergency Dentist near you please contact your nearest Amazing Smiles clinic to see if your urgent dental needs are eligible in accordance to the ADA restrictions. The below clinics are available for emergency appointments:

Other dental treatments outside of what is considered a ‘dental emergency’ are temporarily postponed until further notice. We will put your details in our list for appointment rescheduling and will advise you of when we are able to return to standard operations.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused and we appreciate your patients if our replies take longer than usual. In case of emergencies that phone, your cases will be triaged and we will aim to reply or attend to your phone call as soon as possible with one of our nearest emergency dentists available.
