Thank you to everyone who took part in our annual patient survey. We all know it has been a challenging year for everyone and we were delighted to see that 100% of you gave 5 out of 5 in reply to the statement “I have confidence in the practice’s Covid-19 precautions.”
01 December 2020
Sharing toothbrushes and other ill-advised oral hygiene measures could play an influential role in spreading Covid-19. Researchers from Rey Juan Carlos University and Granada University in Spain have shown that sharing a toothbrush, toothpaste, the same container for the brush and not changing the brush after the viral process, are all possible routes of cross-contamination of coronavirus.
01 November 2020
We are all experiencing extra levels of stress during the coronavirus pandemic. Difficult times like these highlight even more the importance of a good night’s sleep to our health and wellbeing, including your oral health.
01 October 2020
We want to make sure our patients have as stress-free an experience as possible at the practice. Rob Nichols is trained in providing sedation so that he can treat patients who suffer dental anxiety or even phobia more easily. He is also a member of the Society for Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD). Two of our dental nurses, Tina and Sami, are trained in the procedure to support Rob in the surgery.
01 October 2020
We have been delighted to welcome many of our patients back to the practice since we reopened in June. However, we realise that some of you may be concerned about attending for appointments during this difficult time. We do want to reassure you that we are following national guidelines closely and are working hard to keep you – and us – as safe as possible.
01 September 2020
Our hygienists and therapists, Lyndsey and Beth, have been busy working with Rob to make sure our patients catch up with their check-ups and hygiene appointments.
01 August 2020
We have now completed the installation of our new ventilation system which means that both surgeries on the first floor can operate as negative-pressure rooms.
01 July 2020
We have changed the way we welcome you to the practice for an appointment.
01 June 2020
You may have already seen the announcement that dental practices may re-open from 8 June. This is fantastic news – but did come as a bit of a shock to the profession as we had no prior notice!
01 May 2020
We are following national guidelines and so have had to close the practice during this stage of the coronavirus crisis.
