Practice COVID Message Update

Read More

We would like to thank you for your ongoing patience during these challenging times and update you on recent developments.

We would like to reassure you that we are still open for dental and hygiene appointments.

We are now starting to see patients for routine check-ups to check the health of your mouth, teeth and gums, but are still unable to offer a 'quick' scale and polish as it is classed as an aerosol generating procedure.

As part of our dental team, Alex our hygienist, can offer a longer appointment to clean your teeth and gums and discuss ways of maintaining good oral health. Call the practice if you would like to make an appointment with her.

We are proud of our continued high standards of cleanliness at the practice, to keep staff and patients safe. During this crisis we have added further measures to our cross infection protocols.

As you may know, the Prime Minister eased COVID restrictions on the 19th July 2021.

However, under the Governments guidelines "healthcare settings will continue to maintain appropriate infection prevention and control processes as necessary and this will be continually reviewed"

In line with this guidance, we are continuing to follow NHS dentistry's standard operating procedures:

  • Social distancing remains in place so we have spaced all appointments and require our patients to wear face a face covering upon entering the building.
  • We are continuing to leave time between patients to ventilate rooms following aerosol generating procedures (AGP, for example fillings, root canal, crown preparations). This is impacts how many patients we can fit into a working day.
  • We will prioritise patients who require emergency appointments, and those who are more at risk of dental disease, and children.

We hope this explains the measures that are still in place. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. 0161 437 4040

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
