Covid 19 Dental Update: October 2021
At Grahams Road Dental Surgery the safety and well-being of our patients must remain front and centre. With this in mind although a full range of treatment is available on the NHS it is far from “business as usual”.
In order to maintain a “Covid secure environment” the number of patient in our waiting rooms and communal areas must be strictly controlled. To ensure that our patients are treated safely and in line with new guidelines – appointment times will be longer and the time between appointments longer to allow for additional cleaning and infection control measures.
This means that the capacity to see patients is still significantly reduced, when compared to pre covid levels. This falls in line with the availability of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that has been made available.
Priority needs to be given to patients who require emergency care, the vulnerable and those who have been waiting on treatment since before the pandemic. It is, however, possible to see your dentist on a routine basis for examinations. Please continue to remain patient, capacity is still significantly reduced and it will take longer than normal to be seen routinely.
If you have a dental issue and need to see your dentist please do not hesitate to contact the surgery by telephone.
- Attendance at the surgery will strictly be by appointment only.
- If you have a dental emergency please call the practice on 01324 622 392
