Dental services limited to urgent or emergency care for adults during COVID-19

Dental services limited to urgent or emergency care for adults during COVID-19

By QLNews

In compliance with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) directive to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection spread, all routine appointments are canceled at Hamad Dental Center and across several other locations within Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).

Services are now limited to urgent and emergency visits only during this period of the pandemic.

To be seen at the clinic, you must have one or more of these conditions:

- Severe toothache pain (not just a twinge)

- Swelling of your gums, face, or neck

- Bleeding in your mouth that does not stop

- Infection or a substantial risk of it

- Trauma (such as a broken tooth)

If your condition fits any of the above, call on 16000 to arrange an appointment with a dentist.

If you feel sick before coming to the clinic (if you have symptoms of respiratory illness such as fever, cough, shortness of breath and a sore throat) you must call the COVID-19 hotline on 16000 first for advice on how to proceed.

Check out some tips for dental patients by HMC.

Here's everything you need to know about the virus, including ways to protect yourself.
