COVID-19 Update Close

You may have heard that dental practices can open for routine care from Monday 8th June.

Our practice will be opening on that day but we wanted to be clear that this will not mean business as usual. The treatments you are offered may be different to those you have received before, depending on staff and equipment available. It will take some time before services return to what you previously experienced as normal, so your patience is appreciated.

Infection control is a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during previous visits to our surgery. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by our governing bodies and we are up to date on new guidance that have been issued. By following this guidance, we can make sure that our infection control procedures are current and also adhere to recommendations. At this time of writing to you, the PPE required for certain procedures has not yet arrived, which affects some but not all of the treatments we are able to offer.

When you attend the practice for your next appointment, you will see some changes. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
