Visiting the dentist during the Covid-19 outbreak
We would like to reassure all our patients that most dentists are fully aware of all current government advice for healthcare professionals.
You will appreciate that as a dental practice we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything that we do. Clinical sterilisation and disinfection procedures will continue at our normal high standard as a routine. We have also increased the disinfection of non-clinical areas, door handles, bathrooms and public areas in the practice.
Before attending the practice for your next appointment we would be grateful if you would review the most up to date government guidance – just click the link https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Keep Your Dentist in the Loop
We will contact you the day before your appointment to check you are fit and well.
If you have flu-like symptoms, a fever, or a recent sore throat or cough, please contact us to postpone your appointment.
If you are self-isolating or have been diagnosed with Covid-19, please contact the practice to postpone your appointment.
Let’s All Keep Safel
When you visit, you will be asked to use an alcohol hand sanitiser and you may have your temperature checked at reception.
You will be asked to rinse with Peroxyl mouthwash prior to your treatment.
You’ll notice that we’ve removed some non-essential items in the reception area including papers, magazines, kids books and toys. They will return once this is all over.
Please forgive us if we don’t shake hand, don’t think we are being rude!
Please also try not to bring family members to appointments, as this will increase the number of people in the lounge area.
At this time of uncertainty, your safety is our highest priority. As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue to provide or usual high standard of dental care for you whilst safeguarding your health, and our and our families health.
Thank you for your support in keeping everyone safe.
