Following the gentle re-opening of our practice on the 8th June, we are pleased to announce that we are now ready to see patients who require a wider scope of dental procedures. This would include, those patients who require fillings to be replaced, root canal treatments to be completed or crowns to be prepared and fitted. Consultations with the implant specialist (prosthodontist) and the gum specialist (periodontist) are also open for bookings, but overall availability to see the dentists or hygienists may be limited.
Patients that suffer from chronic gum problems such as persistent bleeding or build-up of plaque, would be advised to book in to see the hygienist at their earliest possible convenience. Please be advised that due to the additional costs of PPE and extra measures required for patient safety during this unprecedented time, the charges for hygienist appointments will be £90 for 30 minutes and £120 for 45 minutes.
For AGP (aerosol-generating procedures) involving the dental drill, an additional charge of £45 will be incurred for the patient safety measures taken. We hope that these charges will be reduced once the guidelines have been eased. Please also be aware that our triage policy is still in effect and we will be inviting all patients to submit new medical history forms and COVID-19 screening forms prior to their appointment.
We pray that you all stay healthy and look forward to seeing you in the near future,
Amer, Sofi, Prabha and the GSD team
