Coronavirus (covid 19) Update - 04.06.20

 

Dear Friends and Patients of West Park Dental Care,

 

After ten weeks of lockdown, and dealing with emergency triage mainly with antibiotics and pain killers, we now have a light at the end of a very dark tunnel and we are excited to announce that we can finally start to see our patients again from 8th June.

Can we say a huge 'Thank you' to all our patients who have, without fail, been so understanding when we have been forced to cancel your appointments or had to tell you your fractured tooth couldn't be repaired immediately due to the lockdown.

 

As you can imagine, after this length of time, we have a huge amount of fractured teeth, lost fillings, lost crowns, broken bridges and dentures to deal with as a matter of urgency so we ask that you are patient with us a little longer for routine care to slowly start up again.

Things at first will seem quite different as social distancing is still in effect and the amount and cost of PPE required to do day to day dental work has increased massively in this time. Rules regarding equipment that generates an aerosol are very strict due to the covid crisis and therefore have to be kept to a minimum with special PPE used  (which we have).  Surgeries have to be left empty after an aerosol to allow the air to settle before it can be thoroughly cleaned, so the number of people we can see each day will be limited during this time. So again, please bear with us and we will get up to speed as soon as we can.

 

As time passes, PPE will become more available and rules may change to allow a return to a more "normal" way of working.

We simply can't wait to get everyone's teeth repaired and see you all again in the coming months.

 

Best wishes, Andrew , Alex and everyone at West Park Dental Care.
