Following the government’s announcement of further lockdown restrictions over the next few days, some people have expressed concern that dental services may be reduced or unavailable.
The Prime Minister’s statement last night included specific advice around healthcare that: “unless your clinicians tell you otherwise, you should continue to … turn up for your appointments and pick up your treatments. If at all possible, we want you to continue to access these services, now and through the winter.” The government has since confirmed that this includes dental care.
This means we are still able to offer the same level of service that we have over the last several months. We remain open to all, and all existing routine appointments remain in place. We still offer a full range of routine and emeregency services including routine visits with our dentist and hygienists. To ensure safety, since the start of the pandemic we have made some changes to the way visits work which you can read about here. Our procedures and PPE levels have been tested by operating 100% safely for several months, and we will continue to provide our services in the safest possible way for our patients and staff.
If you have any questions or concerns please do get in touch and we will be happy to answer them.
