We are open again!

The Level 5 restrictions placed on Dental Practices have been lifted and it is business as usual from Monday 23 November 2020. We will be in touch with anyone whose appointments were moved or cancelled due to the lockdown very soon.

St Peters Dental Clinic closed

I am sorry to advise that South Australian dental practices have just been placed on Level 5 restrictions, and we are unable to provide any routine or emergency dental care at all as of tomorrow, Thursday 19th November 2020. Therefore St Peters Dental Clinic is closed. We apologise to all our loyal patients, and hope you will understand this is a COVID-19 government decision, and out of our control.

If you have facial swelling, bleeding or trauma in the next 6 days, please ring 0414272926 for advice. You can also ring this number for general advice or email us on This phone number and email contact will be monitored regularly. 

Keep safe everyone! We will get through this.

We are open and available for routine dental appointments!

COVID-19 update

Level 1 restrictions apply in in South Australia from midnight Wednesday 13th May 2020 and we will be able to offer you the full scope of routine dental treatment including scaling and cleaning from Thursday 14th May with some additional precautions. Excellent news, and we welcome your phone calls or online bookings!

COVID_19 update Monday 27th April 2020

This picture is what rubber dam looks like. It is a way of isolating one tooth from the rest of your mouth while we work on it.

From Monday 27 April 2020 we are back on Level 2 restrictions for Dental Practice. This means we can do permanent fillings with rubber dam to stop aerosols from your saliva getting in the air. We can also do checkups, extractions and denture adjustments, but only minimal cleaning, no polishing and no surgery.
We hope this will ease soon. In the meantime if you need a follow up appointment from Level 3 restrictions we will be in contact soon.

Level 3 restrictions to ease next week

Hi everyone, 

It looks like some routine dentistry will be allowed from next week, with maintenance of appropriate infection control precautions which we already have in place. 

For the safety of staff and patients we have reconfigured our waiting room to comply with social distancing. Forms and updates will be completed either online or verbally without the need to handle paper casenotes. You will be asked to wash or sanitise your hands on entry, and to use an antiviral mouthwash before treatment. 

 Appointments may be longer to accommodate aerosol minimisation processes including high speed suction and the use of rubber dam, and there will be gaps to avoid overlap of patients coming and going. Existing rigorous surgery cleaning between patients will remain, and we have extended this to the waiting room, bathroom and reception area. Contactless payment is available, but we can accommodate all current payment methods.

 More news soon!

Current opening hours

Due to COVID_19 we are restricted to emergency and urgent dental appointments only. Our current working hours are Monday and Thursday 10am to 1pm. Please ring on 83627650 or book online. We may be able to accommodate other times - just ask!

COVID-19 update 27th March

To all our loyal patients and supporters, we are now in Level 3 restrictions. This means we can no lower carry out routine dental treatment for our regular patients. The purpose is to minimise social contact and the spread of COVID-19 particularly through aerosols. Your safety and the safety of our staff is paramount, so our practice is obliged to comply with this recommendation.

We will be postponing all current appointments for approximately three months. Of course we are still available for any emergencies, so please don't worry. Just ring or book online. Restricted times may apply. 

COVID-19 update

Just letting everyone know it is 'Business as usual' here at St Peters Dental Clinic. It is quite safe to have your dental treatment as long as you are not infectious. Obviously if you are ill from any cause, it is preferable to reschedule any non-urgent appointments.

Our infection control procedures comply with Health Department regulations, and we keep in touch with any updates as they occur.

We recommend regular hand washing, and arrange our appointments to limit the number of people in our waiting room at any one time. So stay safe, and know that you are still welcome here!

Looking for staff

We are current hiring! Searching for a part time dentist, preferably with a few years experience and the ability to work independently. We also have a vacancy for a Dental Assistant/Receptionist 3-4 days a week (flexible). Please contact the clinic on 83627650 or for more information
