IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear All,

Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. We would like to firstly thank all our patients for your understanding while our practice has been closed for dental services.

Many of you will have seen the Government briefing which stated that dental practices would re-open on the 8th of June. The detail behind this was stated in a letter sent to all dental practices in England from the Chief Dental Officer, which states:

“We are asking that all dental practices commence opening from Monday 8th June for all face-to-face care, where practices assess that they have the necessary IPC and PPE requirements in place”.

In this statement, IPC (Infection Prevention and Control) and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) are critical to ensure that on opening our staff and patients are kept safe. Due to the nature of work that we do, the risk of infection is extremely high especially when we are carrying out Aerosol Generating Procedures.  An aerosol generating procedure, or AGP, is a dental treatment where water from instruments, working at high speeds in your mouth, combines to produce a spray.  This spray produces aerosols that travel far within the surgery environment, contaminating all surrounding surfaces. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to the surgery. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.

We have already made some changes to strengthen our protocols which you will notice at your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

How you can help:

From Monday 29th of June we will be opening for face to face care. In an initial phase we will prioritise dental emergencies of patients who have called us during lockdown. After this phase we will look to start routine care and give priority to those less urgent dental problems (chipped teeth, lost fillings etc.) and see patients who may be waiting on crowns or dentures to be fitted. Our final phase will be to re-start all routine care such as examinations which we estimate will be later in the year.

Please bear with us in this initial phase, we know it has already been extremely frustrating to have your dental needs put on hold for so long. The whole team is looking forward to welcoming you back to our practice and we are grateful for your understanding and continued support.

Best Regards,

Your Dental Team
