---- COVID Update for Patients: Please read full message ----

Firstly thank you for your continued patience under these challenging circumstances. Following the Scottish Government's announcement about the restarting of NHS Dentistry from 1st November, the following video has been published NHS guide to dental services
Please also see our letter to patients

It is clear that all protective restrictions currently in place must remain. These include; social distancing, increased cleaning protocols, additional PPE requirements, and surgery fallow time after use. With these restrictions it is impossible for dentistry to fully return to pre-COVID normality, despite the promise of all NHS treatments restarting.

With every stage of the remobilisation of dentistry we have reintroduced treatment as soon as permissible, and we will continue to do so. Unfortunately without further changes to covid protocols we cannot safely arrange all of our treatments. Therefore, we are still not in a position to book any routine NHS appointments. We are only able to offer emergency and urgent NHS care or a limited number of private treatments in a safe manner.

How you can help;

  • With the exception of children and patients with carers, please come alone.
  • Observe social distancing and use the provided hand sanitizer.
  • Use contactless payment.
  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking please phone the practice.
  • Please do not arrive early. If necessary, you should wait outside the practice until we call.
  • Please do not arrive without an appointment.
  • Patients should come wearing a mask if possible or be prepared to wear one.

We thank you all again for your continued patience and cooperation in such difficult and frustrating times and look forward to welcoming you back.
