About Essendon Day Procedure Centre

COVID-19 MESSAGE

During this challenging time, the EDPC is committed to continuing care for patients both new and returning. We have instituted multiple safeguards to protect our patients, staff, and doctors.

For the safety of both patients and staff we are limiting face to face consultations. We are available for Telephone Consults and Physical Consults as indicated.

We have adopted all the necessary health guidelines to create a safe environment at our practice. All staff and patients are screened prior to entry.

We continue to maintain the highest standards in providing the best care and support for our patients and referring specialists during this difficult period. We remain open and happy to assist with any patients experiencing oral and maxillofacial problems. Please feel free to contact our rooms on 93262666 if you have any concerns or further enquiries.

At the Essendon Day Procedure Centre we specialise in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are surgical specialists who treat conditions, defects, injuries and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaw and face. Specifically we are involved in the removal of wisdom teeth, other teeth, implants for replacement teeth, pathology of the mouth including cysts, trauma to the jaw, including fractured jaws and cheekbones and orthognathic surgery for the correction of jaw discrepancies.
