The Dental Clinic at Pengiran Anak Puteri Hajah Muta-Wakillah Hayatul Bolkiah Health Centre, Gadong is closed and relocated temporarily until a date to be announced later.
The Ministry of Health in its press release informed, the temporary closure and relocation is intended to enable the staff to assist in the implementation of swab test at swab centres. Only certain emergency dental treatments will be given, subject to screening examinations at counters provided at dental clinics currently operating. Meanwhile, ART will be conducted to all patients who visit any dental clinic, in line with the current COVID-19 infection control measures.
