Dentist PPE and the New Normal
Now that we are back open after ‘lockdown’, when you come for your appointment there will be an element of the ‘new normal’ when it comes to your patient journey. For starters, we have altered our appointments diary so that we minimise the amount of people (both staff and patients) in the practice at any one time. See this in the video above below.
Before you enter the practice, you will be able to check-in for your appointment digitally using your phone. We will also check-in with you two days before your appointment to make sure you are feeling well and have not been experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. When you do come into the practice, your temperature will be taken and we will also provide you with a face covering, shoe coverings and hand sanitisation.
You will then come straight through to the consultation or treatment room where our air filters (throughout the practice) will always be on and working. As we are sure you can understand, these steps are taken to ensure your own safety and the safety of our team and fellow patients too. We have always been a safe and sterile environment. Even so, we want to take the time to show you our enhanced dentist PPE and protocols that we have put in place to offer you the optimum in health, hygiene and safety anytime you attend for treatment.
In the video below, Dr. Damon demonstrates the different versions of enhanced dentist PPE we have invested in which includes full head-to-toe PPE, surgical standard respirators, upgraded aerosol shields and more! These will be implemented as required for certain treatments. Between all appointments as always, the team will thoroughly disinfect the dental surgery – thus reducing the risk of exposure to anything harmful while you attend. As we are back open, you can contact us now to arrange your appointment!
