We are pleased to announce that preparations for the reopening of South East Dental Solutions have begun!
A provisional reopening date of Monday 8th June has been decided. We hope that during the last few months you and your family have stayed safe and healthy. We look forward to resuming practice, but it will not be under quite the same conditions as when we ceased. Footfall and traffic through the practice will need to be reduced.
Pre-screening for all patients will be done ahead of any appointments and this pre-screening will be reconfirmed at appointment time along with a temperature measurement. Patients will be asked to wait in their car until their appointment time, so that social distancing and footfall reduction guidelines can be followed.
The waiting room will need to be reconfigured to comply with social distancing and patients are asked to attend for their appointments by themselves. If a chaperone is required this will be limited to one person.
Patients are encouraged to clean their teeth and use their bathroom at home before attending their appointment as the use of the bathroom in the practice will be for essential urgent use only. Hand sanitising upon entry to the practice will be required and additional hand hygiene measures will be encouraged during patient visits. Additional disinfection procedures and protocols will be in place to maximise patient safety and to minimise any risks associated with Covid 19.
The dental practice will be different than it was before shutdown but we are confident that we can adapt and with your help and co-operation we can achieve great results! If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to call for information, reassurance or clarification.
