8th June 2020 – Dental Practice Opening Patient Information

******* Update For Dental Patients 03/11/20 ******

Dear Patients,
We would like to reassure patients that the dental practice will remain open during normal working hours for the lock down period due to start on Thursday 05/11/20.
Following guidance from the NHS England Chief Dental Officer, we will continue to triage patients by phone initially, and then those requiring a face-to-face appointment will be invited to attend in person.
If you have a dental emergency,  have concerns about a problem in your mouth or would like some oral health or hygiene advice please do not hesitate to contact us and speak to one of the clinical triage team on 01663 736 301.
We politely ask that you not attempt to attend the practice in person unless you have a pre-arranged appointment, as we can only permit those who have been pre-triaged and risk assessed inside.
The Chief Dental Officer for England has advised us that the ‘Priority remains focussed on patients who require access to urgent care, patients at higher risk of oral disease, and patients with outstanding treatment needs that cannot be delayed’. 
 
We regret that due to changes in Standard Operating Procedures and Infection Control Guidelines many of your routine dental examinations may be subject to delay during the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic while we address the needs of patients requiring emergency and urgent dental care.
We also regret that some cosmetic dental treatments may also be subject to these delays while the Covid-19 infection rate is high.
Please be assured that we have your upmost safety and that of our staff as our priority and the dental team is working tirelessly during these unprecedented times to help its patients stay dentally fit and healthy and free of pain.
