The practice would like to confirm that we are still able to operate during this lockdown.
We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk and very high-risk categories for COVID-19 delay non-essential treatment until further guidance has been given by relevant authorities.
Appointments are managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This may mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
If you have an appointment arranged, please expect to be contacted the day before your appointment by our reception team to carry out COVID screening questions and a brief outline of what to expect when visiting the practice.
Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.
We advise that you wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of one of our team members.
As you enter the building we will ask you to use alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfect 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. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the pandemic (March 2020 in the UK) there is no shortage.
We can assure you that we will continue to maintain high standards of cross infection control and that we are doing our best to ensure your continued dental health and wellbeing.
We have excellent infection control procedures along with a robust triaging policy to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.
Our Dentists and nurses are trained in oral health care but also in prevention and control of infection. Dental practices are well-versed in providing safe care, having practised cross-infection control for many years and having routinely utilised personal protective equipment.
Hygienist appointments are now available, with Kay and Annelise offering hand scale treatment on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. To book an appointment please contact our reception team on 01872 241955, alternatively by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for continuing to support our practice.
