URGENT – CORONAVIRUS
Due to the current situation with regards to the coronavirus outbreak, it has become unsustainable to perform routine dentistry within the current recommendations. As dentistry is performed very close to the respiratory tract and involves a lot of aerosol generation, it is impossible to guarantee the safety of our team due to the potentially large number of asymptomatic carriers of the coronavirus.
We are operating a very limited emergency service only. We are unable to perform anything but the most basic of tasks and as such we would urge you to use home care wherever possible. This may involve using painkillers for any pain, temporary crown and bridge cement from a chemist, or temporary filling materials. We can operate a minimum emergency capacity only. If you are unable to control any dental emergencies using home care, please call the practice and leave a message. We will get back to you. We are operating a reduced reception system and as such it may taken time to return your call.
Please do not attend the practice. If you have an emergency appointment, the door will be locked. You will not be seen before your appointment time and only one person will be allowed in to the practice.
If you or anybody in your family is symptomatic of coronavirus, and needs urgent dental treatment that cannot be controlled through self care, please call the practice and we will advise on what to do.
We hope to return to full service as soon as possible.
We wish you and your loved ones good health.
Neil, Duncan and the team at the Old Orchard Dental Practice
