Following advice from the Chief Dental Officer of Scotland, we are cancelling all appointments for patients who have been booked in for treatments that can generate aerosols (spray), e.g. drilling, polishing, water based scaling.
Appointments for those to be considered “at risk” we are also contacting to cancel appointments. This will therefore include adults who are 70 years old and above (irrespective of your health), those individuals with underlying health conditions who could be further compromised by the virus and also expectant mothers.
Patient and staff safety is paramount so we are taking these steps to reduce overall footfall within the dental practice and reduce the risks for everyone to a minimum.
We are not providing a re-booking at this time as you will appreciate we cannot yet predict when normal service can resume. We are maintaining a list of the appointments cancelled so rest assured that we will be in touch when its possible to re-apppoint.
We will be contacting patients who are booked in to cancel but please feel free to contact reception in the meantime if you are unsure or have yet to be contacted.
In the meantime we are limiting our services to the following
- Dental Emergencies
- Some Denture Treatments
- Orthodontic Treatment
