Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.

Emergency dental care: Where to go

Urgent dental problems during COVID-19 Alert Level 2

Please contact your normal dentist or a dentist that provides emergency treatment.

If you or a family member has a very painful toothache or an injury to your teeth or gums, get help as soon as possible.

For serious problems that occur after hours or on weekends, you may need to contact an after-hours dentist, see below.

Some hospitals can deal with dental emergencies, but this should be your last option. You will likely have to follow up with a dentist later.

The Ministry of Health also has some tips on how to get emergency dental care.
