Corona Virus update and Progressive Dentistry

I would like to assure you that as I write this blog post at 1020 19/3/20 our doors are still open to you with the commitment of providing ongoing oral health care to the very highest standards. All staff at the practice are fit and healthy and unless we are told otherwise, we are happy to maintain your appointments. However, we fully understand should you wish to re arrange treatments for now.

Infection control has always been a fundamental tenet of our dental practice and we have always taken great pride in providing a clean and safe environment. As a routine, we use anti bacterial and virucidal sprays on the dental chair, x ray machines, surfaces and equipment after each patient visit. This has now been extended to door handles, reception area, bar area and cloakroom. Our sterilization processes are robust with logged autoclave cycles after each and every cycle. As well as pre cleaning of instruments, ultrasonic baths are used to further remove debris.

We have always managed cross infection as if every single patient we treat is potential risk hence this way we do not discriminate and every single staff member is therefore aware of their responsibilities.

Alcohol spray and gel is available at reception and we advise a 'gel in and out' approach. We have great cleaning staff who are as dedicated to hygiene as we are.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you may have.

We will also be introducing video consultations very shortly which will be available for emergency and routine appointments. I will send a separate e mail once this has been fully instigated.

I have attached a useful poster which highlights the advice we have been given as a health care provider.

In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy. I look forward to meeting with you in better times ahead.

Kind regards

Dr Nissit Patel Clinical Director/ Principal Dentist
