Covid-19 UPDATE 29th May 2020

May 29, 2020

Good morning,

During yesterday’s PM statement, it was announced that dental practices can resume from the 8th of June 2020, if it is safe to do so. Over the next week we will be working hard to ensure that our practice is a safe environment for you to attend and that we are equipped with the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). Despite the news regarding the increased supply of PPE, many dentists including ourselves are yet to be able to source all the equipment we need to safely carry out all treatment types. Quite rightly, PPE is being supplied to hospitals and other front line facilities as a priority.

We have been, and will continue to adhere to guidance published by the Chief Dental Officer and we are expecting more information over the coming days.

We appreciate that these are still uncertain times, and that there are many patients who want to be seen as soon as possible, but we ask that you do not call the practice. We will contact you for an appointment with us. It is likely that we will have to adopt a system where patients are seen based on clinical need as determined by the clinical staff.

However, in the meantime, if you are a patient of ours and in need of any clinical advice with your appliance, please contact our emergency line on 07926529032 as before.

We look forward to seeing you very soon and continuing your treatment when it is safe to do so.
