We would like to inform you that due to the Covid-19 outbreak, as per the latest UK guidance, we are now unable to see any patients face to face in dental practices, as travelling to and from the practice increases your risk of catching coronavirus.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients and your families as well as our team.
We will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am to 2pm.
This will be to provide telephone advice and support to our patients in acute emergencies:
- Severe pain for over 48 hours
- Facial Swelling
- Trauma Or uncontrolled bleeding
For anything not on this list, we will be available for advice as per usual so please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will do our utmost to help you.
We anticipate a very busy period after we are allowed to open our doors so we are still taking future bookings where appropriate. We would advise all our patients to follow our advice on their oral hygiene (brushing before breakfast daily for 2 minutes and before bed for 2 minutes, as well as daily interdental cleaning) to reduce the risk of dental decay/gum issues. For adults, we are also advising a daily, ALCOHOL-FREE fluoride mouthwash after lunch, to increase the daily fluoride dose and reduce the risk of tooth decay. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any queries- we will be happy to help.
At Claremont Dental Practice, we have been serving our local community for many years and our promise to all our lovely patients is that we will still be here for you through this difficult time if you need us and we will be here when this all blows over.
Please stay safe and thank you for your support.
