I know everyone is dismayed at the community spread of Covid and the speed of the subsequent move to Level 3 restrictions. The Ministry of Health and the Dental Council have placed restrictions on providing dental care including postponing all routine dental care.
Under Level 3 we are to avoid face to face contact with patients and to manage emergency or urgent situations with pain relief and/or antibiotics. There are limited treatment options available, using enhanced PPE and cross infection control for problems that do not respond to the above treatment.
If you have a dental problem please contact us for advice on the best way forward.
All appointments from Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th will be rescheduled and we are waiting to see the outcome of Wednesday’s update from the Government for appointments booked after that.
Reception will be open to answer any inquiries between 9 am and 5 pm this week, phone 09 5200734 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
