Notices & Information
August 2020 Covid19 Update
The Practice re-opened for face to face dentistry on 15th June 2020 for non-aerosol generating procedures and at the end of July we tentatively resumed all treatment options (i.e. Use of drill, scaler and air/water syringe).
From Monday 12th October we are using both surgery rooms simultaneously. The use of air purifier machines has enabled us to reduce the fallow time following AGP (Aerosol Generating Procedures such as drilling, ultrasonic scaling and use of the air/water syringe) from one hour to twenty minutes. There is still around twenty minutes of cleaning time after that, resulting in inability to use the room for forty minutes after any AGP.
So we still cannot work at the same efficiency as previously.
Some good news however - the MyDentist company have taken on another dentist ‘Spiros’ who together with ’Syeda’ will be able to cope with the backlog built up since Dr Winterburn moved away last December.
We are starting to see some patients for routine check-ups. We will be using hand scaling rather than ultrasonic scaling where possible to avoid AGPs for the time being and to attempt to maintain viability.
Procedures for patients attending for appointments are changing again, and you will be told what to do by the reception team prior to your visit.
Staff are available at the Practice in Stalbridge every working day, so if you wish to talk about any dental concerns you currently have please do give us a call, and if required one of the dentists can arrange to call back and chat with you over the telephone. Calling us in the morning before noon is helpful as it then enables us time to deal with urgent problems through the day.
Thanks for your patience whilst we continue to work towards getting back to some semblance of 'normal'.
For your first point of contact please continue to telephone the Practice on 01963 363485.
