As some of you will have heard from the First Minister today, dental practices are now allowed to re-open for face to face EMERGENCY CARE only. Please note we have only just been made aware of this, and are reacting to it as fast as we can, so that we may be available to our patients this coming Monday.
Due to government restrictions, we are only allowed to open one of our five surgeries to see patients. In addition, requirements set on social distancing and increased hygiene measures, will have a significant impact on the number of patients we are allowed to see per day.
Initially, we will need to prioritise EMERGENCIES AND URGENT CARE, such as uncontrollable pain and swelling. During this phase we are also sadly restricted in the procedures we are permitted to carry out. Our triage service will remain in place until further notice, so that there will always be a member of our team to help you at the end of the phone. Please dial 01292 268880.
Since we will be limited to the number of people in the practice at one time, please do not attend the practice without a pre-arranged appointment.
As a team we are very frustrated by this, as we understand you will be too, but please bear with us as we move into this new phase. Your oral health and wellbeing continue to be at the forefront of everything we do and we remain optimistic that these are the first steps to finding the new ‘normal’ for dentistry.
The Practice may look a little different going forward with changes implemented to allow social distancing and changes to the PPE our dentists and hygienists will wear. However, we will be the same team with the same smiles awaiting you on your return.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
Your Team at Quadrant Dental Practice
