We have been open to treat all our patients since 8th June 2020 after the first lockdown.
We follow all the guidlines given by NHS England.
We are accustomed to decontamination procedures and the dental surgery is one of the cleanest environments. All our treatment rooms are wiped down and sanitised between every patient as per the government guidelines. Full PPE is worn by all the team and there is pleanty of ventilation in all areas. We have also installed air purifiers.
Within the practice, throughout the day, all surfaces including door handles, taps, card machine and reception desk are wiped down with alcohol/disinfectant wipes. Patients are asked to arrive only 5 miutes before their appointments and when admitted are asked to use the hand sanitiser before entering the surgery. There are designated seatings at 2 meters apart in the waiting room.
We are providing every treatment available on the NHS however due to the time restrictions wwe are treating fewer patients compared to before the pandemic.
