COVID-19 Patient Information
We would like to inform you that, despite the fact that we will be in lock down as of Thursday 5th November 2020 our dental practice will be open as usual. We shall be able to accommodate all your dental needs except for cosmetic dental work. We have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow our high standards in cross infection control.
If you do have an appointment with us during the month of November, please keep this unless we call to cancel or rearrange. We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk category should delay non-essential treatment until the end of the lockdown.
Please note all cosmetic treatments will be postponed until after the restrictions have been lifted.
Please continue to attend your appointments if you are in middle of a treatment plan. If you want to book in for routine examination, we suggest you arrange the appointment for after the lockdown.
If you are worried about your attendance, please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment until a later date. If you do feel unwell, please call and cancel your appointment before coming to the practice.
When you arrive:
Do not enter the practice, telephone while outside (stay in the car if possible) someone will come and let you in. We advise that you wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional. Please do not arrive more than 5 -10 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines. As you enter the building you will be asked to place your belongings in a box outside the treatment room and wash your hands.
The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient. The air purification/exchange units will continue to be used throughout the day in each surgery. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.
Stay safe and please contact us if you have any concerns.
We will look forward to seeing you all in a very safe manner.
