Our Dental Practice

Wednesday 9th September 2020

We are very happy to be seeing our patients again and getting back to a bit of normality!
This week we welcome back our lovely hygienists. If you require a hygiene or routine appointment please call reception on 01803 298032 and we will be delighted to make an appointment for you.

 

24th June – Please book your routine examination

We are now fully open. If you have missed, or are due your routine examination please call Reception on 01803 298032 in office hours.

We have updated our protocols, invested in new PPE  and equipment and are fully trained in cross infection. Rob and the team look forward to welcoming you all back.

 

15th June 2020 – We are open!

We have updated our procedures, we are wearing lots of PPE  and have a new appointment system but it’s still the same great team providing the very best dental care.

Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been given a new appointment and have been pre-assessed. We are dealing with all our emergencies and outstanding work but will be in touch with you all very soon to re-arrange all appointments.

If you have any dental issues please call us on 01803 298032 between 08.30-17.00.

 

8th June – Update

We just wanted to provide a quick update. The practice remains closed until we are able to obtain the correct PPE to keep our patients and staff safe. We will then get in touch with patients, prioritising emergency procedures first, before we return to providing all routine care as soon as we possibly can. Please do not attend the surgery until you have been pre assesed and told to do so. If you do have severe pain, swelling or bleeding please call the surgery on 01803 298032 leave your name and number and we will return your call.
We look forward to welcoming all our patients back very soon, but we are sure that you will understand that this has to be in a safe and organised way.

 

29th May – Reopening Announced

We are very pleased to hear that Dental Practices can begin to reopen from 8th June.

We have spent time over the last 10 weeks  to prepare for our reopening. However it will not be a straight ‘back to normal’ return.

We have always taken the safety of our patients and staff as paramount importance and will be adopting all new procedures and PPE to ensure that this continues. Due to social distancing and new guidelines our initial capacity to see patients will be reduced. Please be patient as we prioritise your care.

PPE continues to be in short supply, and at the beginning of lockdown we donated our surplus to Torbay Hospital and Marie Curie Nurses. We have procured some PPE but we are waiting for back orders of more stock to arrive.

We are very aware that many patients have been in pain and discomfort and we will be in touch with you to offer you appointments at the end of next week. We will also be commencing our much needed routine work as soon as we possibly can.

Please only call the surgery this week if you are experiencing pain, swelling, bleeding or trauma.

Please do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment.

We hope to see you all very soon.

Rob & the Team
