We extend you a warm welcome to our long established family practices, offering an extensive range of high quality dental treatments carried out in a friendly and comfortable environment.
From 19th July 2021 the government is lifting all remaining restrictions in England, including mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing requirements. However, the guidelines for healthcare establishments remain unchanged, so we will still require patients to wear facemasks (unless exempt), and to sanitize hands when entering and leaving the practice. The safety of our patients and staff is very important to us and we want to keep everyone safe. We also ask that you continue to complete the online forms we send you before your appointments. Thank you for your continued cooperation
We will continue to have restrictions on leaving time between patients to ventilate rooms if we perform an aerosol generating procedure. An aerosol generating procedure (AGP) is a medical procedure that can result in the release of airborne particles (aerosols) from the respiratory tract when treating someone who is suspected or known to be suffering from an infectious agent transmitted wholly or partly by the airborne or droplet route. In dentistry, for example, this means the use of something like a high speed drill. This impacts how many patients we can fit into a working day.
We are also following the Chief Dental Officer’s advice that we should prioritise patients for treatment based on urgency and priority groups, such as those more at risk of dental disease or children. We are working extremely hard to provide care to our patients within the restrictions and guidance to ensure it’s safe to visit the dentist. If you think you need to see us please do give us a call.
