At Doucas Dental, we are currently providing emergency dental services to all new and existing patients during COVID-19. We are closely following and implementing daily advice from the Australian Dental Association and the Federal Government to ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. We are currently at level 2 restrictions for COVID-19.
Can I Make An Emergency Dentist Appointment?
Due to the current federal government and ADA COVID-19 level 2 restrictions, from the 26th of April we are now able to see all types of dental emergencies compared to when we were previously on level 3 this was very limited as we were only allowed to see patients that had acute dental pain. We still cannot perform treatment that generate aerosols under Level 2. So, if you have a toothache, constant pain, pain on chewing and/or facial swelling and an abscess we are able to see you for an emergency dentist appointment. Currently our principal dental surgeon Dr Gregory Doucas is available for emergency appointments Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm and associate dentist Dr Elisia Doucas is available for emergency dentist appointments Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm at our Midland practice.
Our reception is open Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm if you have any questions or would like to discuss any dental concerns you may have. Our friendly team will be on hand to help and can advise on what to do if you are currently in self-isolation at the moment.

If you’re experiencing any of the following, please get in touch with us to book an emergency dentist appointment at our Midland practice.

An abscess is a pimple like spot on your gum just above your tooth and can leave a bad taste in your mouth and cause bad breath, which you may notice. This is a pocket of pus in a tooth which is caused by an infection and requires urgent treatment.
