IMPORTANT PATIENT UPDATE
You may have heard on the news that Dental Practices will be reopening from the 8th June 2020 for face to face appointments. This was the first time we have heard the news.
Please be aware that contrary to media reports we are still a long way from being able to provide routine dentistry and along with other dental practices we know that the 8th June is not a realistic date to reopen. This is owing to the of preparation required to meet the new operating procedures and guidelines.
We will only reopen once we feel that everything is in place so that we can ensure our staff and patients are as safe as possible.
Under the envisaged new protocols, practices will only be able to see a handful of patients per day and this will be to provide urgent basis care only as we are still unable to carry out any aerosol generating procedures using the drills.
Opening the practice is also conditional on being able to obtain adequate levels of PPE
Private Dental Practices are not in the NHS supply chain and therefore we are required to source our own PPE, which is proving to be incredibly challengingnow.
Another reason why we will be delayed in reopening is because Dr Mund has fractured his ankle last week and will need at least 4 weeks to recover!
Please do not ring the practice to make routine appointments and do not visit unless directed by a member of staff.
OUR DOORS REMAIN CLOSED TO ENSURE EVERYONE'S SAFETY!
There is obviously a massive backlog of emergencies and we will be dealing with these patients first when we reopen.
We will continue to operate the telephone emergency service until further notice.
If you think you have a dental emergency please contact the practice by:
We would like to thank you for your continued patience in these difficult times and please rest assured we are all working hard to get the surgery back to some normality as soon as is reasonably practicable.
We look forward to seeing you all as soon as we are able.
Please continue to stay safe.
