Ware Dental Care

Opening Protocol

On 31st October 2020, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a second national lockdown due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19.

Ware Dental Care will remain open.

We are however, prioritising emergency treatment. If we cancelled your routine check-up, please be patient. We are working through our cancellation list and contacting patients in date order.

There are no restrictions with regards to medical treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments. At Ware Dental Care, we have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow our high standards of cross infection control.

Our hygienists are still offering appointments however, due to the restrictions regarding aerosol generating procedures (AGP) and the use of ultrasonic scalers, we are only able to offer a thorough hand-scale. This is by no means a diminished service as our hygienists are meticulous and dedicated to your Oral Health.

What next?

Please continue to attend your appointments. We have excellent infection control procedures along with a robust triaging policy to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.

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

We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk category delay non-essential treatment until further guidance has been given by the relevant authorities.

When you arrive:

You are required to wear a mask at all times whilst 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.

As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfectant your hands.

The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.

Please do not be concerned as we continue to maintain high standards of cross infection control. Stay safe and please contact us if you have any questions.
