Welcome to Delicate Dentistry - we are remaining open during the latest (2021) national lockdown.
Following the speech by the Prime Minister on Monday 4th January 2021, we are pleased to confirm that Delicate Dentistry will remain fully open for all appointments.
Our new ventilation systems and additional PPE mean that we are fully compliant with all our statutory bodies' recommendations, and all staff are now self-testing for Coronavirus twice weekly so that you, the patients, can feel safe to attend.
We would also like to thank you all for co-operating with the many tedious and annoying new procedures that we have had to introduce last year.
We wish you all good health and a happy New Year.
Mark Saliba and all at Delicate Dentistry.
We are working very differently to pre-Covid times: everyone is required to wear face coverings, and the staff are wearing more PPE than previously:
Despite the latest national lockdown announcement, we are continuing with all emergency and routine appointments. If you have any problems please contact us. The surgery phone 01373 822229 is now manned during office hours, emails to firstname.lastname@example.org will also be answered promptly.
Hygienist appointments have restarted. However, the current restrictions mean that the ultrasonic scaler and the AirFlow polisher cannot be used. Your appointment will include the most important feature: monitoring your gum condition and your cleaning, in order to show you how best to take care of your teeth and gums. Research shows that the primary factor to maintaining dental health is your own daily cleaning. At the appointment, your hygienist will use hand scaling only, so it is important that you have cleaned your teeth carefully before coming to your appointment.
We are still not able to see anyone who has symptoms, or has been in contact with anyone who has symptoms, of covid-19 (fever, continuous cough, alterations in your sense of smell or taste). If this applies to you and you have any dental problems or queries, do please contact us and we will help you.
As a means of reducing opportunities for the infection to spread we will look to reduce the number of visits for each patient by trying to ascertain (by telephone or email) what treatment is required, and then booking the appropriate appointment.
IF YOU HAVE A DENTAL EMERGENCY.
The surgery telephone and email are now being monitored during office hours.
IF YOU HAVE A DENTAL EMERGENCY OUT OF OFFICE HOURS PLEASE CALL:
MONDAY - FRIDAY 5.00PM - 7.00PM, AND SATURDAY, SUNDAY & BANK HOLIDAYS 10.00AM - 4.OOPM: 07739 426283
Thank you for your patience both during the lockdown and for the next few weeks. We will have Delicate Dentistry back to our usual high levels of service as soon as possible.
Mark, Julie and all the hard-working team wish you and your friends and family good health.
