Given the current issues with the COVID-19, we are changing things at the practice so we can continue to provide the best care possible to all our young patients. Alongside this, we are equally committed to ensuring a safe environment by reducing risks for patients, their families and staff members alike. We will be in touch with all of you via phone and SMS in the coming days and weeks to keep you up to date with the changes. Some of these may include:
- Being an accredited practice requires us to maintain a high standard of infection control. However, due to the current modes of transmission of COVID-19, requires extra time to ensure we meet the same standards of infection control you would already be used to at our practices.
- Prioritising our children with pain, abscesses and dental infections so they get seen quicker;
- Increased phone contact with all parents to ensure we identify any at-risk patients prior to their arrival at the practice;
- Altered appointment times to ensure we only have a limited number of patients in our waiting rooms at any given time keeping in mind the recommended guidelines on social distancing.
Although we will be in touch with all of you soon enough via phone, should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
We understand that this is a testing time for every single one of us and appreciate your understanding and assistance in ensuring that we all stay safe.
