Following the surprise Government announcement on the 28th May, the team at County Road Dental are working hard to set up the practice so as we can safely resume face to face care of our patients. Unfortunately, this is not a return to “business as usual”.
There are two reasons for this;
- The need for social distancing and cross infection control will massively reduce the number of patients we can see face to face.
- There are chronic shortages of our basic PPE and we cannot provide you with safe care without it. We also need to source higher specification PPE for most dental procedures (eg scale and polish, fillings, crown and bridge work) as they create an aerosol which is believed to provide ideal conditions for spreading the COVID-19 virus.
We will start to assist those patients with the most urgent needs and then we will phase the return to more routine procedures and check-ups. You do not need to call us to book routine check-ups as we have a record and our staff will be in touch when we can safely see you. Also, please don’t attend the practice without an appointment. I will continue to post updates to this site.
We thank you for your understanding if there is therefore a delay to the resumption of normal service. Please rest assured, our absolute priority is to provide a safe treatment environment for our patients and staff as soon as possible.
Best wishes and stay safe
Paul Geoghegan (Principal Dentist)
