​We hope you and your family have been keeping well and healthy during this Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

  • The current national approach is to ensure that social distancing measures are observed to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19)

  • Stringent social distancing measures are required for those at increased risk of severe illness and shielded population groups.

  • As per government decisions it has been necessary to cease practicing routine dentistry for more than two months upon advice from our regulators.  

  • The closure period of time has led us, dental professionals, to entirely rethink of how to modify our practice procedures, to continue to provide the safe environment we used to have before COVID-19, to maintain staff and patients safety.

  • The re-opening strategy of our practice has started from the first day of closure, evaluating literature available of the time of writing this procedure, clinical studies from international bodies, advise from the World Health Organisation.

  • Endless research, international and national forums have approached dental industry and different standard operating procedures have been produced. The promotors of these procedures have been approached by Urgent Dental Care Centres, the ones that had to “meet” the virus via patients who had to be treated. 

  • Our duty is to ensure the our environment offers protection towards staff, as well as patients and that everyone has in depth understanding about the actions and procedures that have been put in place to protect everyone.

  • As further advice and knowledge will develop, our SOP will adapt accordingly.

Stay Safe, Stay Well, Stay Alert, Stay Local and Stay Smiling.
