Unfortunately, due to the increased risk of Coronavirus transmission, we have made the decision to temporarily close the clinic in the best interests of you our patients, as well as staff. Keeping you safe is our number one priority.
We will be in touch with every patient directly to reschedule their upcoming appointments in the coming days. Can you please try and email us your queries and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can keep our phone lines free to deal with emergency patients.
We will provide an emergency service which will be run to the highest and strictest standards;
- If you have pain, please phone our clinic, where you will be assessed first over the phone by a dental professional.
- as far as possible, you will be cared for without direct contact; unless otherwise advised by the dentist please do NOT come to the clinic and please do NOT attend hospital A&E service.
We can provide prescriptions over the phone and emailed to your pharmacy, when needed. If a genuine emergency arises, we will of course see you by appointment only, to make sure issues are dealt with and do not end up in A&E.
This is a stressful time for many, but with clear communication, excellent hygiene practices and a diligent approach to social distancing we can all look after each other and see this challenge through.
