The Dental Practice – 01992 641414

Important UPDATE – 20th July, 2020

Dear Patients:

Welcoming you back

We are gradually resuming dental care and services in line with NHS England Covid 19 Pandemic guidelines.

Please phone the practice if you have dental pain, swelling, bleeding or facial trauma and our practice team will ensure you get appropriate advice or dental help. In order for us to comply with social distancing and to ensure the safety of our patients and staff we would request that you do not attend the practice without a confirmed appointment.  We thank you for your understanding.

 

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our surgery.
Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by the governing bodies. We are up-to-date on new guidance that has been issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our practice will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment.

  • When you enter the practice we will take your temperature and ask you to use hand sanitiser. You will find some in the reception area and other places in the practice for you to use as needed.

  • We no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

How you can help:
  • With the exception of children and patients with carers, patients should come alone

  • A distance of at least 2 metres must be observed if another patient is present in the dental practice

  • Payment should be made by card where possible

  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking, you should contact the practice by phone

  • Please do not arrive early to the practice. If necessary, you should wait outside the practice. Also, patients should come alone and not bring any unecessary bags or belongings

  • Please do not arrive without an appointment, and we ask that patients visit the bathroom before coming to the practice, as you will not have access to the usual toilet facilities

 

Sincerely,

The Dental Practice
