COVID-19 LATEST PRACTICE UPDATE

Zebon Dental Remains Open- National Lockdown Announcement 31st October 2020


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


Zebon Dental will still be open. There are no restrictions with regards to medical treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments. At Zebon Dental we have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow our high standards in cross infection control. Please remember mouth cancer screening is an important part of all your dental check-ups and early detection is vital. And dental decay does not get better if you leave it.

 


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 attending the practice, please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.

If you feel you are clinically vulnerable, please contact us as we are happy to accommodate you without any other patients in the practice.

 


When you arrive:

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. Please continue to wait in your car and call us to let us know you have arrived, as we will call you in when ready to minimise the number of people in the practice.

As you enter and leave 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. The air purification units will continue to be used throughout the day in each surgery. 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.

Kind regards

All at Zebon Dental
