Important Coronavirus Update – 23 March 2020

Temporary Closure

To our Patients and Friends of Long Sutton Dentistry, 

  

Our team have been working tirelessly to keep Long Sutton Dentistry a clean and safe environment for you. 

  

As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do.  In addition to our usual scrupulous cross infection control measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related more specifically to Coronavirus. 

  

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, we feel we must use our own clinical judgement and act in the best interests of our patients and staff. 

  

We feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus, and so, it is with very heavy hearts, that we have taken to decision to temporarily close the practice.  All being well, we will re-open on 1st May. We will of course keep you updated with the latest information on our website www.longsuttondental.co.uk and via our social media pages.

  

Looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be operating an Emergency Telephone Consultation service for our patients who have urgent pain or swelling during this period of closure.  If you urgently need assistance, please us on 01406 364600 and speak to our team or follow the instructions on the recorded message.

  

As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue our usual high standard of dental care for you when we return. Please note that all routine appointments will be scheduled as soon as possible once we re-open and we may extend opening times to accommodate these.

 

Thank you for your support, and stay safe,

Long Sutton Dentistry’s Response to Coronavirus – 19 March 2020

As a dental practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything that we do. We continue to provide treatment with universal precaution to ensure each room is cleaned and sanitised before, during, and after a procedure, just like hospitals.

 

We are happy to answer any questions, at any time should you have concerns whether you are fit enough to come to the practice or whether you’re concerned for you own safety in attending. The majority of our patients are taking the decision to continue through their treatment if they are not in an at risk group and they are supported fully by us.

 

You can be rest assured that if we ever reach a situation where we think there is a risk for our patients then we will close for as long as is necessary and you have our guarantee on that.

To all of our patients, past, present and future, I wanted to put down a few words on what it’s going to be like coming to the practice in the next while, in the midst of the circumstances we find ourselves in relation to coronavirus (COVID -19).

 

Reactions to this situation are mixed from indifference to panic but we are well informed and are an extraordinary team who are working hard to continue providing healthcare of the best possible standard, in the best possible facility.

 

Our team of staff and the clinical side are not only experienced but hugely committed and of long standings.

 

We have a range of policies and procedures which have been instigated around current guidelines which we are happy to share with anyone who would like to see them.

 

In times of difficulty and times of trouble, it is essential to try to safely carry on and to try to form some kind of normality which allows us to get on with our lives and share the joy of helping people and being helped and working together.

Please feel free to contact us at any time on the details below, either by phone or by email to ask any questions which we will be happy to answer and discuss.

 

If you’re concerned about coming to the practice for your own health or concerned that you may be a risk to others, then just ring and we will be happy to help you make a decision that is best for you.

 

I will be providing updates to help people make decisions about what is best for them and in their best interests but in the meantime my advice is this:

  • Look after your family and those close to you
  • Try to help your community as a wider area and try to look after anyone who is over 60, who might need some assistance.

 

If we are all able to do that, then very soon it will be Summer, and we will be looking behind us at something that seems less dark.

 

From everyone at Long Sutton Dentistry, we wish you health, happiness and safety and are here if there is anything we can do to help.
