27 Apr What We’ve been up to During Lockdown
The team from Long Sutton Dentistry have been keeping busy during lockdown – here’s what some of them have been up to…..
Sam is at work every day and has been liaising with patients who need advice. Where necessary she is discussing concerns with dentists Matthew and Gianluca who will talk directly to the patient if required and decide on options for them.
Sam has been delivering Dental Nurse kits and antibiotics in Long Sutton and all the surrounding area.
The rest of the reception and nursing team have been furloughed – but they aren’t sitting around.
Hayley has been shopping for her vulnerable neighbours and has been busy in her garden.
Thankfully the weather has been kind as she loves working in the sunshine. Of course, she has to fit this in around her boy’s school work!
On a lovely note they got new kittens as well.
Harriet has been very productive doing lots of online training and CPD (continuous professional development). She has also been baking, trying her hand at a bit of art and, of course, enjoying spending more time with her dog.
Kenny and Jude celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary this week – they should have been in Northern Thailand so decided to cook a Thai meal instead as a poor substitute!
Ness has been shopping every Friday for one of our patients and her mum.
Kelly has also been doing her bit and delivers shopping whist still observing social distancing recommendations!
She has also been trying out some new recipes and is worried that she won’t fit into her uniform when we get back to normal!
Also baking is Alice, our apprentice, and we think she made a pretty good first (ever) attempt at a sponge. Hugo, her German Shepherd, seemed to enjoy her baking too!
Gianluca has been busy with his boys – they did lovely paintings of rainbows for our window (we are trying to fill the entire window with pictures in support of the NHS and key workers who are busy looking after us during this lockdown).
He has also been busy doing lots of jobs around the house which have been waiting for months (maybe years!) This week he is decorating his bathroom.
We will let you know what the rest of the team have been up to in a future blog post!
