Practice Announcement on COVID-19 26/03/2020

We are sorry to inform you that, for the first time, we have had to make the difficult decision to close the practice for the time being, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
We have been advised by our governing body that are not to carry out any non-essential treatment (such as exams, scalings, fillings, crown preps etc.) and not to carry out any procedures that generate aerosols.

 

Social distancing has also been advised by the Government, and as you can imagine, this is next to impossible to implement in a dental practice setting.

 

We are cancelling all appointments from now until 31st May, at which point we will review the situation and see what our next steps will be.
We are currently contacting everyone who has an appointment booked before this date.

 

As a practice, we have a duty of care to our patients, so will be available for emergencies only.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to remind our patients what constitutes a true emergency:
✅  Dental trauma (e.g. knocked a tooth out)
✅  Significant dental/facial swelling that is worsening
✅  Uncontrollable bleeding from the mouth
✅  Severe dental pain that cannot be managed by painkillers

 

Examples of dental problems that will NOT result in an emergency appointment include:
❌  Dental pain that can be relieved with painkillers
❌  Crowns/bridges out
❌  Broken fillings
❌  Broken teeth
❌  Bleeding gums
❌  Orthodontic problems, e.g. brackets off

 

We will be available on the phone, so please call us on 0161 9803485 for any advice.

 

Please make sure to only phone us and do not attend the practice. We can offer over the phone consultations, and even video calls if necessary.

 

We will be constantly updating you via email and the practice Facebook page.

 

This is a difficult time or everyone.
We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause, but we need to look after our staff and patients alike, we appreciate your support and loyalty in this difficult time and we will see you on the other side

 

We urge everyone to stay at home, stay safe and take care of each other.

 

From Vijay, Toni, Hannah, Emma, Ru, Fran, Lorraine, Brooke, Mayazakia, Natalie, Jade, Sarah, Kirsty, Ruth, Anna, Jo & Kerry
