Here at the dental centre, we are currently still following NHS England's COVID-19 guidelines for safe working. This requires us to socially distance appointments, use respiratory equipment and allow ventilation of the surgery after every appointment. We are also working with all windows open to ensure your safety. This, of course means, we are unable to see the volume of patients we did prior to COVID-19.
We are trying to prioritise certain groups, starting with children and high risk adults. we are continuing to see any of our patients who have problems. Part of our operating procedure at the moment, is that our receptionists (who are also qualified dental nurses) will assess your problem and prioritise those patients with more severe issues.
We are aware check-up's are overdue for many adults. Unfortunately until our operating guidelines change, which are set by the Chief Dental Officer of England, this will not change. So please be patient with us, as it is out of our control.
