COVID-19 Practice Update 28/09/2020

We’re welcoming back our routine exams, treatment, and hygiene appointments at the following Damira Dental practices: 

Unfortunately, we are only able to offer limited routine dentistry, hygiene & emergency appointments at the following practices:

Unfortunately, due to NHS restrictions on the treatment we can provide, we are only able to offer limited routine at these practices. We are however able to service your needs if there is an emergency or you are in pain.

At present you may have seen in the media that the NHS are requiring us to provide care to all patients whether they are based at this practice or not.

This has put strain on the services we are able to provide as it is extremely busy.

We will be booking in routine appointments in from January 2021 but of course we may have to rearrange depending on how the pandemic develops.

If you do wish to be seen before January 2021, we do have private appointments available which are in less demand.

We are prioritising patients in pain. If you develop pain in the interim, please contact us on the day as we have NHS and private emergency appointments available.

Please do not visit the practice for any reason unless you are asked to do so.

If you have an appointment booked or had an appointment cancelled during the lockdown period, you can call to rebook these appointments from January.

Please note the below when you attend your appointments:

  • Please attend the appointment alone unless you need a carer or you are the parent or guardian of the patient.
  • Please check your email before your appointment, and complete the relevant documents on the patient portal.
  • Do not bring heavy coats or valuables as you may be asked to leave belongings outside of the surgery during your appointment.
  • We will ask you to make payment over the telephone when booking your appointment.
  • Toilet facilities will not be available during your visit so please ensure you refrain from drinking too much fluid before you arrive.
  • When you arrive for your appointment please remain outside of the practice/ in your car until the receptionist calls you to enter the practice.
  • Upon entrance to the practice one of our nurses will ask you to sanitise your hands and may request you apply a face mask.
  • You will be escorted through the building and asked not to touch anything on your way to the surgery. On entering the surgery, you will be asked to wash your hands.
  • After treatment we will ask you to apply the face mask (if applicable) and escorted out of the building, removing your face mask on exit.

Our Priority
