LATEST NEWSLETTER AND BULLETIN FOR PATIENTS
To our Patients and Friends of Absolute Dental
Our team have been working tirelessly to keep Absolute a clean and safe environment for you.
As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do. In addition to our usual scrupulous cross infection control measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related more specifically to Coronavirus.
Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, we feel we must use our own clinical judgement and act in the best interests of our patients and staff.
We feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus, and so, it is with very heavy hearts, that we have taken the decision to temporarily close the practice for all routine care. All being well, we will re-open on Monday 13th April. We will of course keep you updated with the latest information on our website www.absolute-dental.co.uk
We are currently in the process of contacting patients to move their appointments and rescheduling them to ensure when the time comes we have capacity to see you all. We are also making time to have a personal conversation with all our older patients in self isolation to ensure they are safe, well and assist with anything at home they might need.
Looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be operating an Emergency Clinic service each day for our patients who have an urgent dental emergency, pain and/or swelling during this period of closure. This clinic will operate on an individual one to one basis, so we minimise the contact you have with other people; If you urgently need assistance, please call us on 01548 852165. This clinic is for our own patients only with priority to our membership patients and will not be available to those here on holiday or that are not currently registered with us.
We would like to remind our membership patients that they are still eligible to request assistance from the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme during this temporary period.
As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue our usual high standard of dental care for you when we return.
We are in the meantime offering free face to face help and advice via Skype and Facetime as well as a chat option on our website www.absolute-dental.co.uk, where one of the team will be available to assist.
Thank you for your support, and stay safe,
The Absolute Team
