Covid 19 Statement
We very much hope that you, your family and friends are keeping well.
We are pleased to inform you that following the Government lockdown announcement on 4th January 2021; your dental practice will safely remain open and continue to offer our full range of services.
In line with the last period of national restrictions, and despite some incorrect reports in the media, the Chief Dental Officer and the British Dental Association have stated that dental services are to remain open and see patients.
The public are lawfully permitted to leave home and travel to visit their dentist for urgent and all routine dental care.
We regularly review our protocols and procedures to ensure the implementation of stringent infection control measures. We screen all patients before attending appointments. No patient enters the premises if they have symptoms of any description, Covid-19 or otherwise. Temperature checks, hand sanitising and face masks are mandatory for patients and staff on entry.
In addition to our stringent pre-Covid-19 surgery cross infection controls, we have the additional measures of high-volume surgery air extraction, air purifiers, fogging and the effective use of Hypochlorous acid (HOCL).
Every staff member is screened on arrival at work and all staff will continue to wear enhanced PPE. In addition, each staff member completes a PCR lateral flow antigen Covid-19 test to ensure they are virus free. This is performed twice a week and will continue for a minimum of 3-months.
Please be assured that appointments booked with us will remain in place and do not need to be rebooked or cancelled. However, if you wish to reschedule, our reception team will be happy to assist you.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued loyalty to the practice and for allowing us to look after your dental needs during this very challenging time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know by calling the practice on 01202 672138 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes & kind regards
J Roul Rothman and The Hamworthy Team
