To all our valued patients.
Despite the relaxation of Covid regulations on 24th February 2022 we have been advised by the Chief Dental Officer of England not to change any of our Covid-related restrictions for the time being.
Face coverings should still be worn in the practice.
As has always been the case, we would rather you cancel if you have any cold or flu-type symptoms, and naturally this is extended to Covid.
Please do not attend if you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following 5 questions, even if you are fully vaccinated:
If any of the above apply we would rather you cancel, at short notice if necessary, than put any of our staff or fellow patients at potential risk. No late cancellation fees will apply.
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions and you are in need of emergency dental care then please phone or email for advice.
If you have received a reminder text or email please complete the attached Covid screening and medical update.
We request that you do not enter the building more than a couple of minutes before your appointment to help reduce numbers in the reception area.
Please wear a face covering until advised to remove it.
Please use hand sanitiser on entering the building.
Ideally wait outside, however we do have some seats available inside if you prefer, although these are prioritised for those with limited mobility.
We would prefer that our toilet facilities are not used if at all possible, but should you need to use them then please clean surfaces down with the wipes provided afterwards.
We are following official guidance from our regulatory bodies to keep you safe but as we are unable to practice social distancing at all times there remains a risk of transmission of the Covid-19 virus.
There is a list at www.nhs.uk of patients that are considered highly or moderately vulnerable and you should take this into account when deciding whether to attend or not.
Should you have any questions or concerns please contact email@example.com and we will do our best to respond to any queries you have.
