When we were forced to close in March I don't think anyone could have anticipated the impact that COVID would have on our lives and the dental profession.
We have tried our best to keep patients updated with the relevent information as the situation has evolved and this is the latest update.
The NHS dental service is still focussed on pain relief and providing urgent care to patients, with the full range of treatments previously available, currently not allowed. We are still not running at full capacity to ensure social distancing for staff and patients safety, and for those who have attended the practice you will have noted the added safety measures in place to minimise the risk of COVID transmission including pre-appointment screening, staggered appointments, additional staff PPE and surgery fallow times between patients to allow thorough cleaning. We have had no indication when NHS services will return to previous operating levels, and this concerns us, as the amount of outstanding dental treatment required by our patients will be considerable!
As a practice we have a desire to provide our services to those who don’t want to wait for NHS services to resume, and risk further damage or deterioration, therefore wish to make patients aware they can have treatment completed on an Independent basis at Calderwood Dental Practice.
If you have an issue or query then it would be examined, diagnosed and the treatment options (both NHS and Independent) discussed with a dentist so the individual patient can make an informed decision that suits their situation.
We wish to emphasise the if you have ANY concerns about any aspect of your oral health then please contact the practice and we can discuss your individual situation.
Call 01355 221917 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
For out of hours emergencies please contact NHS 24 on 111.
We appreciate your understanding and patience
