To our dearest patients,
First of all, we very much hope this communication finds you all in good health, and we sincerely hope that this terrible virus has not affected your families or friends on a personal level.
As you may now be aware, the Chief Dental Officer has announced that dental practices will now be allowed to begin the phased process of reopening for emergency care from Monday 8th June 2020. (This was the first time the dental profession heard the news too!)
Whilst this is indeed exciting news for all of us, we do recognise that we still need to ensure that the wellbeing of our patients and colleagues is our top priority. As a result Dental Studio will only reopen when we are satisfied that we have all of the necessary processes and personal equipment in place to guarantee your health and safety. Obtaining PPE has been a particular challenge, as you may be aware there is a national shortage and having the correct PPE in place is essential for reopening.
We are working hard on this and anticipate being able to give you more detail on our reopening date in the coming days, but for now we would like to fully reassure you that whenever we do reopen, we will do so putting your – and our – welfare at the forefront of everything we do.
The practices will almost certainly look and feel a bit different when we do reopen and we will be taking very significant additional precautions in the way we conduct appointments. Our staff may need to use additional PPE for some time, and you, our valued patients may be asked to help us during this process. We will provide more details in due course. The aim will be to provide the same personal and excellent service that you have come to expect of our team.
Just a reminder that for now that we are still on the end of the telephone and on e-mail if you would like to discuss anything. Just call the practice number as normal. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep updated.
With our sincerest best wishes for your continued good health during hopefully this last period of uncertainty.
Usha, Neresh and the Dental Studio team
