Keeping you safe

We’re transforming the dental journey to give you the best dental care and ensure your safety

Here are some of the ways we are making your visit safer

Virtual Consultations

Whether it’s for cosmetic treatment or an emergency, we can give you the answers you need before we meet in person

Health checks in advance

We’ll check in with you before your appointment to see if you’ve been unwell or in contact with anyone unwell - we can always reschedule if we need to

Spaced visits

We’ll only have 2 patients in the practice at one time and avoid contact between you

Less waiting time 

We’re minimising the amount of time you spend at the practice by asking you
- to fill in forms online before your appointment
- to wait in your car or somewhere nearby and calling you to come in when the dental team is ready to see you
- for payments over the phone 

PPE

We’ll be wearing masks, gloves, aprons, goggle and where necessary, respirators. You won't see our full faces but know that we're smiling and happy to see you! 

Surface disinfection and sterilisation 

We're continuing to uphold the gold standard of disinfecting all surfaces including door handles between each patients. As always, we only use rigorously sterilised or disposable instruments.

Sanitisers

We’ll offer this to you when you arrive and after your treatment 

Antimicrobial mouthwash

Before a dentist examines your mouth, we’ll give you an antimicrobial mouthwash

Domiciliary visits

In due time following safety guidance, we will be offering dental care in the comfort of your own home. This will include check ups with scale and polish, emergency visits, temporary fillings, simple extractions or denture fittings.
