Duns Dental Practice has re-opened!
We’re back at the Practice – albeit in a limited capacity and won’t be returning to full provision of service until Phase 4 of the Route Map. Currently, we are dealing with those Practice members who made contact with us during the shutdown period. We will then be in contact to re-arrange appointments for those of you with outstanding treatment that can be addressed without Aerosol Generating Procs before contacting members with delayed Periotherapy and Examination visits. In the meantime, all routine appointments (Examinations, Periotherapy, Fillings etc) will continue to be cancelled on a rolling basis depending on how guidance evolves. You need take no further action if you have a scheduled appointment as we will be in contact with you. We are not rebooking these appointments at present but will keep a note of them and be in contact to rebook once the situation has passed.
As always, our aim is to keep our Practice Members and Team safe and new Protocols and Processes are in place to facilitate this. We will now ask you to fill in your medical history and other forms, ahead of time, via our Patient Portal and there will be a telephone consultation (usually the day before you attend) to explain processes and recheck various details. We will also continue to provide updated information on our answer machine, via the Practice website www.dunsdental.co.uk and here.
We would like to remind you that, as per previously, if you have an appointment scheduled or a dental problem and are showing any signs or symptoms of COVID (high temperature, dry cough etc) or are part of a household that is self-isolating we would ask you NOT to come into the Practice. Telephone us on 01361882262 and we will help you ascertain the most appropriate course of action for your situation at the time.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. Thank you in advance for your co-operation and please stay safe yourselves.
