Yesterday the British Dental Association (BDA) issued advice to Dental Practices in the UK about the potential for spread of COVID-19 from asymptomatic patients within a Dental Practice setting.
The BDA recommends that ‘practices cease routine dentistry and operate an advice and emergency service only’.
As our priority is the safety of our patients and our staff we are cancelling all routine appointments from today.
Following advice from the BDA we will NOT be fixing loose brackets as this creates an aerosol that could be highly infective.
We will ONLY see the following problems :
If you cannot eat
If you cannot close your mouth
If you are getting ulcers from a long wire
If you have completely lost a retainer (not if it is cracked)
If you have a problem that you wish to ask us about please send us your name, a description of the problem and a good quality photo if possible.
We want to take this opportunity to wish everyone well during this difficult time. We look forward to catching up with everyone after this is over and normal life resumes.
