Covid-19 Update 16th June

Dear Patients,

We are now open and booking appointments. The service has not resumed to full capacity yet but we are able to check and assess you face to face.

Currently the Hygiene Service ( Oral hygiene review, scale and polish and care instructions ) is being carried out, using the traditional method of hand scaling instruments. Ultrasonic scaling will not be available yet .

Please phone the practice before attending. This will allow us to plan your visit and assess your health.

Your visit

We have locked the front door and fitted a ring bell which alerts us of your arrival. Please be patient, we may not be able to answer straight away if we are dealing with other patients.

The staff will greet you wearing masks and gloves. We have gloves and masks available should you wish to wear them too . You may be asked to wait in your car to allow other patients to exit and maintain social distancing. Please only bring someone with you if it is absolutely necessary. For example, a carer or interpreter.

Please bring a credit or debit card instead of cash for payment. Avoid bringing shopping or large bags as they will be left in the porch along with your coat.

As expected, there are many of you who are eager to be seen and we will endeavor to get to you all as soon as we can.

Initially we will be prioritising those patients who have had or are still in severe pain, and we have a list of patients who have contacted us during the lockdown period.

Finally, thank you again for your loyalty and patience throughout this pandemic – we are truly grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind Regards,
Gurdev and the Team of Little Aston Dental Care
