In the current climate I feel that it is only right to reassure our patients what procedures we already have in place and what further measures we have put in place to protect you and our staff from the virus.
We have increased the cleaning of our high traffic areas such as door handles, floors, light switches etc.
We have hand soap and anti bacterial hand gel available in our treatment rooms and bathroom and we encourage everyone to use these before and after your treatment.
As was the case before this outbreak, our dentists and staff follow the infection control protocols which are of the highest standards.
We are also discouraging hand shaking between each other.
I know some may be concerned about visiting our practice but I am following the guidelines provided by the Public Health Department at the moment and we are remaining open and are taking the relevant precautions.
If you are feeling unwell with a cough and/or temperature then we are very happy to move your appointment to a later date or until you are over the virus. This does still need to be done 24hour before your appointment so that it can give us a chance to fill the appointment with someone who is on the waiting list or in need of an appointment.
We wish all of you the best during these tough times and we shall be here providing quality dental treatment to you, our valued patients.
