Restarting our Check-Up Service
2nd March 2021
We are contacting you to offer you an opportunity to schedule your postponed check-up appointment.
We have now, more or less, completed our backlog of outstanding and urgent treatments. We are still restricted to a reduced number of patients each day – due to social distancing and PPE requirements – but now feel we are able to safely provide a limited check-up service.
You will be made an appointment to attend for a check-up to examine your teeth and mouth and allow us to determine if any treatment is required. There will be NO treatment provided on the day of your check-up (including scale and polish). If it is determined that a scale and polish is required for dental health reasons, or any other treatment is required, then we will organise a further visit for you to have this done.
Each dentist will have specific days and times to perform check-ups to allow the smooth running of the service. We will release a number of check-up slots at a time to prevent the service becoming overwhelmed. For fairness we have sent out these emails in the order patients had their check-up postponed. If we have no slots remaining when you call, we will add your name to a waiting list and you will be contacted when the next batch of slots is released – before any further emails are sent – so you will not slip back down the queue.
Please do not encourage others to try to make check-up appointments based on this email. We will be in touch with everyone in order.
It is very important that we try to see as many patients as we can to screen for dental disease and oral cancer – as well as continue to help those with problems and emergencies. If you have anything of concern, please get in touch.
Finally, we would like to thank you for your continued understanding in what has been a very challenging year. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Please call us on 01505 321030 to book your appointment.
