Frequently asked questions

Government advice for health care settings is for patients and visitors to wear a mask or face-covering at all times. You are more than welcome to bring your own mask if you prefer. We can supply you with a single-use mask to wear during your visit as well.

No, but we ask you to sanitise your hands when entering the practice. If you come into the practice wearing gloves, we will ask you to sanitise them. Gloves protect your hands, but the gloves themselves could be bringing in contaminates into the practice and can transmit them.

Aerosol-generating procedures (or AGPs) are any medical procedure that releases a fine spray of particles. Treatments such as any that use a dental drill or a jet of water release particles into the air, in particular particles of saliva.

While the idea of it isn’t pleasant, many dental procedures release a fine spray, hygiene treatments especially which makes it a greater challenge to limit transmission as much as possible. We wear full PPE during any treatment that releases an aerosol, ensuring that our staff do not come into contact with anything. This not only protects our staff, but our patients too.

Only if completely necessary. We strongly recommend that you come on your own so it is easier for us to provide a safe environment for all our staff and patients. Children can of course come attended by a parent or carer.

Let us know before you arrive if someone will be joining you in the practice and we ask them to complete a coronavirus screening questionnaire as well. We will need to check their temperatures when arriving and also ask them to wear a mask or face-covering at all times.

Call our practice if you are in severe dental pain. There are urgent dental care facilities set up around the UK where you can receive urgent emergency care in a safe environment.

If you have no coronavirus symptoms, we can book you in for an appointment and address the issue at our practice. As we have reduced appointment times, we may not be able to see you right away. We will aim to see you as soon as we can while ensuring we maintain our strict decontamination protocols.

We are accepting general dental appointments. As examinations release no aerosols, we can check your oral health in a low-risk environment. We will still wear PPE as it will not be possible to properly social distance in the surgery.

It is best to book as soon as you can as we only have a few appointment slots per day.

We are now accepting hygiene appointments as usual. We have fallow time between AGP appointments, so are taking the correct precautions. We also have air filtration units in all surgeries.

Convenient
e-consultations

We have fewer appointment slots now than we did previously as we are allowing for time between patients to fully disinfect the practice.

To see you sooner, we are now running online video consultations as well as physical consultations.

Your safety, our constant focus. New safety measures:

Our practice has adapted measures to reduce risk of coronavirus transmission. This affects how we treat dental care and will continue to impact the way we work in the future.

Cross-contamination and disinfection controls have always been incredibly important in dental care. During the pandemic, we have increased these measures and introduced new measures, which you can read in detail before your next visit by clicking below.
