Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the COVID-19 virus, we feel it is important to reassure you that we are continuing to keep our practice clean and safe for both you and our team.
We hope you appreciate that as a dental practice we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything that we do. Nevertheless, Derek and Peter have decided in the best interest of you our patient, and our team to close the practice to all appointments during the current phase of the Coronavirus outbreak. This means we have put all routine care on hold, including emergency treatment of all patients for the coming weeks as instructed by the Chief Dental Officer, England.
If you have an appointment in the coming weeks, our team will be in contact to postpone this and to advise you of how we are moving forward.
We hope this change is short lived but as always, our commitment to the health and safety of our patients and our team is paramount to us and means we are obliged to take this unprecedented step.
We are committed to offering a continued service of care to you at this time therefore while our physical building is closed, our team are still working virtually from home and are available at the end of the phone should you need to get in touch. If you need emergency care, contact the practice telephone and we will be able to provide appropriate advice.
There is an Urgent Dental Emergency facility being set up by our Local Area Health Authority. However, this is not yet in place but if you call us with a dental problem, we will triage your needs and if necessary refer you to this service once open.
We thank you for your support and understanding and look forward to seeing you in the future.
Stay healthy and stay at home.
DEREK ALLEN. & PETER WORKMAN
