She is certified as a handler for Mr Miso, who is our visiting certified therapy dog. Mr Miso helps to assist children in the dental environment.
During her specialist training, Dr Linda Huang developed interests in treating children with special needs, behaviour management, management of dental trauma and dental anomalies.
*Days and hours may vary depending on when we are working at the hospital
Update 16 July 2021: With the current Melbourne lockdown commencing today, in keeping with regulatory guidelines we are closed for all routine dental care. Emergency care (limited) will be provided in accordance with current regulatory guidelines.
Unforunately appointments will need to be cancelled, and our team will be in contact with families to rebook them with the next available appointments. Additional working days have been added to accommodate those who have been affected by the lockdown.
Of note, there are restrictions imposed on services provided in hospital, so elective dental procedures are currently triaged- with trauma and pain a priority. As a result, patients who were recently cancelled due to the restrictions- will be recheduled when we can resume non-urgent procedures.
With our current COVID-19 safe plan, we will continue to follow precautionary measures to ensure the safety for all those attending the clinic and our staff.
Thank you for your understanding in these challenging time.
