Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Specialist Implant Centre
Adelaide MaxFax is a small team of friendly and approachable surgeons, nurses and administrative staff who at all times are 100% patient focused.
Our aim is to provide our patients with a stress free and smooth transition between initial consultation, surgery, recovery and ongoing review if necessary. We will endeavour to provide the highest level of surgical care to our patients at every stage of their treatment journey.
Our attention to detail is what makes us stand out from other practices.
COVID-19 - Safe Plan
At Adelaide MaxFax we are committed to keeping our environment as safe as possible. We continue to adapt to the changing COVID-19 recommendations within SA. As legislation has changed, so too have our COVID-19 protocols.
Screening measures remain in place for all patients, staff, doctors, carers/support people and contractors.
Appropriate social distancing practices should be observed by all persons in the facility.
Masks are no longer mandatory in specialist medical rooms. However, if you are in a high risk category, or if you have cold/flu symptoms, we encourage you to wear a mask.
Please advise our staff if you have cold/flu symptoms. A Rapid Antigen Test may be required prior to an oral examination, or oral examination may be limited.
For patients who are scheduled for surgery in hospital, please contact the hospital directly for their most current pre-operative requirements, conditions and policies regarding surgery and COVID-19. See Locations for hospital contact information.
All patients having surgery in our rooms at Adelaide MaxFax (regardless of their vaccination status and reason for admission) will be required to undertake an on site Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) prior to their procedure.
If your RAT result is positive for COVID-19 it is likely that you have COVID-19 and your surgery will be postponed. It is recommended that you isolate for 7 days and lodge your results with SA Health.
If you test positive for COVID-19 in the weeks leading up to your surgery, please phone us to discuss your treatment plan. Most anaesthetists will not administer anaesthetic for 4 weeks following a positive COVID-19 test result. We will work with you to find a suitable date for your procedure.
