Lockdown 2.0 Announcement

2nd November 2020

Gentle Dental Implant and Cosmetic Centre Remains Open – National Lock-down Announcement 31st October 2020

  • Since Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a second national lock-down due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19.
  • Gentle Dental will still be open.
  • There are no restrictions with regards to medical treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments.
  • At Gentle Dental we have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Air Purification and Fogging systems and will continue to follow our high standards in cross infection control.

What next?

Please continue to attend your appointments.

We have excellent infection control procedures along with a robust triaging policy to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.

If you are worried about your attendance please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.

We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk category delay non-essential treatment until further guidance has been given by the relevant authorities.

When you arrive:

  • Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.
  • Wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.
  • We will continue to check your temperature and if this is above 37.8C, you will be advised to rebook your treatment and to follow government guidelines.
  • As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfectant your hands.
  • The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient.
  • The air purification/exchange units will continue to be used throughout the day in each surgery.

We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.

Please do not be concerned as we continue to maintain high standards of cross infection control.

Stay safe and please contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards
