Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

Monday 2nd November 2020

Wyndcott Dental will be open during lockdown

At the weekend Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a second national lockdown due to the rising number of cases of COVID-19.

Wyndcott Dental will still be open. There are no restrictions with regards to medical treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments. We have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow our high standards in cross infection control.

Please note: We are not yet able to provide NHS check-ups or take on new NHS patients.

If you are worried about your apointment please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.

The team at Wyndcott Dental provides an emergency telephone triage service, so please do not hesitate to contact us between 9-5pm, Monday to Friday, for any queries or management of dental emergencies.

** Please do not come to the practice without an appointment. **

How do I see my dentist now ?

Please respectfully note that we will be operating strictly by appointment only. We will not allow walk-ins due to social distancing measures.

You will need to contact the practice and go through our routine triage procedure. We can be reached by phone, email, or via our website.

When you arrive

Please do not come into the practice until called. Let us know you have arrived by calling, or signal through the window.

We advise that you wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

We will continue to check your temperature and if this is above 37.8C, you will be advised to rebook your treatment and to follow government guidelines. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

Deposits

Any treatment that was delayed because of COVID-19 will still be carried out when it becomes safe to do so, and deposits will not be lost.

Any treatment that is cancelled and has been paid for has been recorded and payment can be left as credit. If you prefer to receive a refund we only have the facility to do this in person and is best arranged in advance.

I am due a checkup, will I be deregistered ?

No. If you do not come to the practice for several years, then we will consider deregistering. Nobody who is unable to attend due to the current situation will be deregistered.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience but hope that measures introduced by the UK government and health regulators will bring a more rapid return to normal with less serious health issues than we would otherwise see. We thank you in advance for your understanding.

Dental Check By One

We support the Dental Check by One initiative which recommends that you register your baby and bring them to their first checkup before their first birthday. This helps get them off to the best start and gets them used to seeing the dentist regularly.

Good morning
You have set up the surgery perfectly. I wasn't worried about coming in and the amount of protection and system in place worked really well. No complaints from me just praise. Thank you.
