CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

IF YOU REQUIRE ADVICE REGARDING A DENTAL EMERGENCY PLEASE RING THE PRACTICE BETWEEN 9AM AND 11-30AM, THANK YOU.

Your appointment after we reopen.

As you will have probably heard the Government has given us an advisory date of 8th of June to start to plan the return phase to work.

During the lockdown time and while we have been offering telephone triage we have:

We are now training hard to ensure the dental environment is truly safe for both our patients and staff.

The last pieces of PPE will be with us shortly and we are still waiting for clarification of how we will need to work- again we are promised this soon.

During the lockdown we have now got a list of patients that need our urgent help. Understandably we will be giving our first attention to those that need us most, but rest assured we will be getting to you as soon as we can- our computer system has you safely logged. If you develop an urgent problem, please give us a ring.

When we reopen, we and the practice will look quite different, don't worry, its still US under all the funny looking costumes and we will fully explain how you will move through the practice before you come. This will involve us checking your COVID status on arrival, and also checking your temperature as well.

If you have any questions please contact us on 01332 862942.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding at this most extra-ordinary of times.
