Coronavirus is impacting the way we deliver our dental services.
Patients with symptoms and/or living with others with symptoms:
NHS advice is currently that patients with either of the following symptoms of coronavirus should be in self isolation:
If anyone in your household has experienced these symptoms in the last 14 days but you have not had any symptoms, then you should not attend the practice for 14 days from when the symptoms started in the first person who experienced symptoms.
If your are in self isolation and you need urgent or emergency dental treatment, you should not attend the practice but instead call 111 who will provide help and advice, and arrange any emergency dental treatment you require.
Patients with no symptoms:
Our face masks and our cross infection protocols are not completely effective in preventing transmission of coronavirus between our patients and staff.
Due to the risk of transmission from asymptomatic patients, we are cancelling all routine dental appointments and currently providing emergency and urgent dental treatment only. This means all routine and non urgent treatment should be postponed.
At risk groups
If you are in an a risk group, NHS advice is currently to self isolate.
If you think you might have a dental emergency please call the practice on 01543 264630 and a member of staff will triage you over the phone and provide advice or an emergency appointment if appropriate.
