COVID-19 FOR DENTAL PATIENTS
COVID-19 Information Update
In the last few weeks, the world has been turned upside down for all of us, and we are now facing huge challenges in order to make it through this unprecedented international crisis.
For dentists it has always been our priority to offer excellent dental care for our patients but at the moment this is sadly not possible.
The decision has been made by the British Dental Association, Local Dental Committee and the government’s Chief Dental Officer that provision of dental care in dental practices must be suspended for the next 12 weeks.
During this period, dentists will be able to provide patients with telephone service only.
We can offer advice and issue prescriptions and if necessary, refer you for emergency treatment in a local emergency treatment hub which are being set up across the country.
By following this advice, we can better protect our patients and staff, reduce the spread of coronavirus, and help reduce the enormous pressures on the health service. By doing this and working together, we can help to save thousands of lives.
We have decided to set up this website to provide patients with advice for the most commonly presenting dental emergencies. We have dentists available online to provide guidance and support for patients at this very difficult time, We are offering our services free of charge. At times like this we must all work together and help as many people as we can.
