As announced by the government and NHS England on 28/05/2020 –
all UK dental practices have been informed that they can commence opening from Monday 8 June
for face to face care, providing the correct IPC and PPE requirements are in place. At Darwenside Dental we have worked hard to make sure all these requirements are in place and officially reopened on Monday 8th June, by appointment only!
We would like to politely inform all of our patients that we will be in contact regarding any routine dentistry or appointments, but until then we would ask that you please refrain from contacting our practice number unless you are seeking urgent dental advice. Whilst we have been allowed to reopen, we will be taking careful measures in our progression to offer our regular service, including our full range of routine dental care and cosmetic treatments on offer. The safety and wellbeing of patients and staff is our highest priority so we must continual risk assess our situation to ensure this standard of care.
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION FOR OUR PATIENTS
WE MAY ONLY BE OFFERING A LIMITED SERVICE IN OUR PRACTICE, BUT WE ARE STILL HERE TO HELP IF NEEDED, BOTH ONLINE AND OVER THE PHONE.
At Darwenside Dental our patients and staff have always been our number one priority – and rest assured, that will continue. During these uncertain times we will be available to help if you need dental advice over the phone, on email and via our social media channels. We will help you to maintain the best oral health possible from the comfort of your home, and if urgent treatment is needed, we will do our best to ensure you are seen to.
Urgent Dental Care Centres are able provide emergency dental treatment only to those in need during these unprecedented times. Appointments are only available to patients by referral from their dentist, after receiving advice from their Practice helpline. Practices who are currently providing this service will only see you if you have an appointment. You will not be allowed to enter the building without one.
Our practice is open by appointment only, we have the required PPE and procedures in place, to enable a safe practice environment and set the highest standard of care for our patients and staff.
We look forward to welcoming you to our practice if you have an appointment, but in the meantime, please keep visiting this page for the latest information and keeping an eye on our Social media channels for updates.
Our Practice is currently offering routine dentistry by appointment only under the guidance of the BDA and Public Health England.
