---- Update for Patients ----

Dear Patients,

We hope you are all keeping well. We have been working through our backlog of patients and have come to the point where anyone who has not been in for a check-up since the lockdowns began in March 2020 is encouraged to contact the practice to arrange a routine check-up appointment.

For those who have had a check-up in 2021/2022 we would ask for your patience and we will send out a further email when our recalls are resuming normally. Appointments can be made over the phone on 0141 638 0046. If both our lines are busy a message can be left, or a call back requested by contacting the surgery ...

We are pleased to say we have recently upgraded the ventilation in each of the surgeries. This will allow us to evacuate the aerosol from the surgeries in 10 minutes, as opposed to the 25 minutes it would take previously. This means we can see more patients a day and have more dentists working at the same time. We have also invested in electric motor handpieces. These can be set to reduce aerosols and mean we can get closer to pre-pandemic treatment levels.

We continue to follow Scottish Government guidelines regarding socially distancing in medical settings. This means 2 metres social distancing should be maintained in the waiting room, but we are hopeful this will be revised soon. Given the often poor weather we would caution that depending on the number of people already in the waiting room we may not be able to let you in immediately. We will strive to safely manage everyone, but please wait in your car and try to arrive just before your appointment time to avoid overcrowding.


- Thank you for your continued support and understanding. Dr Neil J Rolfe and the Rolfe Dental Team
