07 Jul Covid19 – Return to Dentistry
We have now returned to work and are already getting into the swing of the “new normal”.
Routine appointments have returned this week – hooray!
Patients who are members of our Practice Plan have supported us throughout this difficult time and we will be forever grateful for that – be rest assured we still aim to fit in your “included” appointments within the 12-month period. For example, it may mean you have 8 months and then 4 months between appointments rather than 6 months each time.
Our plan members will also be given priority for booking of their routine examinations and hygiene appointments. We are also happy to tell you that, as an extra benefit, members of our dental plans will NOT be charged for the additional PPE costs required at this current stage of the pandemic.
Whether you are a plan member or you “pay as you go” we are doing everything we can to resume normal services – please keep following us on social media and look for updates here on our website to find the latest news.
If you are in the group that has been shielding the advice is still that you avoid visits for now unless you have a dental concern such as pain or discomfort.
As we need to do extra screening before each and every patient visit you may find our telephone lines are busier than normal. We apologise for that – we are looking into options to minimise disruption but please bear with us in the meantime. There is a facility to leave a message when the line is busy – we urge you to do that and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks to all our patients for your support – you will never know how much we appreciate you!
