To all our patients

Everyone is concerned about the developing situation with Covid-19, the new virus, in Brighton, Europe and Worldwide.

We would like to reassure you that, as always we are here for you and shall continue to act to ensure the health and the safety of our patients and team.

We are accustomed to decontamination procedures and the dental surgery is one of the cleanest environments there is. Within the practice, throughout the day, all the door handles, taps, card machine and reception desk are wiped down with alcohol wipes. We have plenty of hand soap and hand towels in all our room and toilets. There is hand sanitiser at reception and we ask each patient when they come in
sanitise their hands.

All our treatment rooms are wiped down and sanitised between each patient as standard procedure.

All delivery persons or others coming in to the practice have to sanitise their hands.

As matters develop we will need to respond to changing advice, possibly on a daily basis. We will do our best to continue to provide care with a proportionate response. As part of this, we would ask any patient who has a cold, cough flu like symptoms or generally feeling unwell to cancel their appointment.

If you are over 70, or medically compromised, we offer deferral of your appointment. If you wish not to sit in the waiting room with other patients let us know you have arrived stay in your car and someone will collect you and take you straight into the surgery when the Endodontist is ready.

Online consultation-if you are self-isolating, or would prefer to stay at home, and have dental concerns, we will be glad to arrange to have a discussion with you on the phone. Clearly this won’t be able to deal with everything but we hope we may be able to provide reassurance in many situations.
