Dear patients of Church House Dental Clinic,
Many of you may have seen the announcement by Boris Johnson on Thursday 28th May where he told us that Dentistry would be back to ‘normal’ on the 8th June.
As I’m sure you can imagine this has caused much excitement and relief both amongst patients in the UK and amongst Dental teams and in particular ours.
It has been heart-breaking for our team to watch our beautiful practice sit empty for over 10 weeks while our patients with difficulties and problems mounted up in a list at the practice that we were unable to provide help for as we were strictly banned from seeing patients.
While I realise that the announcement on the 28th May suggests we will be completely back to normal on the 8th June, sadly this is not entirely the case.
Our priority will be to schedule the patients that are in difficulty and these have been listed and graded in the practice based on Clinician discussion.
Myself, Sonika Burger will therefore see patients in the first 2 weeks after the 8th June who have difficulty and problems to ensure that all the initial and urgent problems are dealt with appropriately and patients are well looked after.
From this point onwards we will begin to bring more of the team back in and attempt to provide some normality heading towards a routine level of care as quickly as possible in the coming weeks.
As always if you have any questions or queries please contact the Practice directly on 01823 430004 and we will be happy to answer any of these and give you exact plans for how things are going to run.
With regards to the safety of attending the practice and all aspects of that I would like to take this opportunity to reassure everyone associated with Church House Dental Clinic that our standards here are as high as possible.
We also have space both in terms of car parking, waiting room and treatment room which allows us to adhere to any strict social distancing requirements and cross-infection requirements which are applied.
I believe that the majority of our patient base would not even question our approach to cross-infection control as they understand the standards that we work at but if you would like to discuss this or if you have any questions then please contact us immediately and keep an eye out for further communications such as this and on our social media channels.
Personally I am so relieved that we will soon be in a position to be able to look after our patients, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our patients for the massive amount of support we’ve received in communication through this time but also and in particular our patients who are on our ‘priority list’ who have been so patient through such a difficult time which for us, was completely counter-intuitive and went against everything we hold dear to healthcare.
We really cannot wait to see you again at the Clinic and thank you very much for your attention.
With our very best wishes to you all and much love.
