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
