Here is some helpful information for members to share with patients during COVID-19. 

CIC has produced useful resources and articles to share with consumers via Orthodontics Australia and our social channels, which members can also share through your own channels. Articles that have been developed and shared include a "COVID-19 update", an "FAQ on treatment during coronavirus", "Hygiene recommendations if your orthodontic treatment involves elastic bands" and "How to look after your teeth if you can't get to your orthodontic appointment". Visit the Orthodontics Australia website to view the articles. CIC has also developed a "Handling Orthodontic Issues at Home" fact sheet for members to share with your patients at this time. Click on the image to download the full fact sheet.
