These are quite worrying times but our patients well being and staff safety is the most important thing to us.
We need to work alongside the latest guidance whilst ensuring we are also caring for you in the safest way possible.
Due to COVID-19, the Practice is following the Chief Dental Officer of Englands recommendations for dentists and we are unable to provide routine dental care at this time.
Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the COVID-19 virus, we wish to reassure you that we are continuing to keep our practice clean and safe for both you and our team.
We are regularly checking with Public Health England for updates in the interests of safety and wellbeing for our patients and team, and adjusting our protocols as and when advised.
As dentists we already have strict disinfection and decontamination protocols which we have always followed.
We are very limited in what we can provide but can triage any difficulties and we have been assisting some patients recently over the phone and via email discussions.
NHS England is in the process of arranging dedicated Emergency Dental Hubs to deal with acute emergencies as at this time we need to keep our patients away from the Hospital A+E departments. As General Practices we have not been set up with the advised Personal Protective Equipment required to deal with dental problems safely.
Please rest assured we are keeping up to date and both of us are on various groups and committees trying to work through the best way around this.
Dave, Emma and all of the team @ 183dental.
