Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: 2nd July 2020
On 18th June the first Minister moved us to phase 2 of remobilisation of dental services. During phase 2 we will be able to offer a very limited service for Covid free patients who are in pain but don’t require an aerosol generating procedure(AGP). Examples of treatment we will be able to carry out are simple extractions and providing temporary fillings.
If you have Covid and have dental pain or if your require an AGP then we will continue to refer you to our local urgent dental care centre (UDCC) which is now at Howden Health Centre.
Appointments must be pre-arranged by telephone. We ask that you attend alone where possible, bring as few belongings as possible, bring your own pen, and be aware the toilet is locked and you must request access from reception. Your Covid status and that of any chaperone will also be checked.
The staff will be dressed in PPE as this is the advice from our governing body. We will however continue to provide you with the best service we can in these difficult circumstances.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
