Acorn Dental Practice
THE COVID CRISIS
Since 15th June we have been treating patients, initially to deal with the backlog of outstanding treatments, but also for examinations, hygienist appointments and non- emergency treatments. As our patients have seen, we have robust cross infection and Covid prevention procedures so our patients and staff are kept safe.
We are happy to announce that, unlike during the first lockdown when we were forced to close, this is not the case for this lockdown. It is legal for people to attend for dental care as it is a part of their health needs. We have ample PPE including the highest level of respirators for our staff to use. We also have all the knowledge, training and procedures in place to allow us to treat our patients safely for all treatments.
Our registered patients have priority over appointments but we will do our best to see New Patients, as well as our registered patients , for both emergency and routine care. Anyone having problems is asked to ring as early in the day as they can so they can be given an appointment the same day if at all possible.
It is very important to continue to have regular examinations and hygienist visits. Since reopening I have found 3 skin cancers that the patients were not aware of and well as finding cavities and gum issues that had progressed much further than they would have done if we had been able to catch them earlier.
We ask that any patient who has a symptoms of Covid , who are self isolating or who have been in contact with someone who has Covid, not to attend the practice. If they are having dental issues please telephone the practice and we will give advice as to what can be done regarding their problem.
Our practice hours are Monday to Friday 8.45am to 5.30pm with 1.00pm to 2pm closed for lunch. We are also open for some Saturdays 8.45am to 12pm . The normal evening (6-8) and weekend rota(9-12) for emergencies is in place for our registered patients.Call the practice number and listen to the out of hours message to get the emergency number.
Please continue to stay safe.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon
