To our lovely patients and friends
We were very pleasantly surprised yesterday by the Prime Minister’s declaration that dentists can re-open from 8th June. This is really wonderful news and we are very excited to be able to see you at Diana Dental again. We understand how difficult this time has been for many patients throughout the country who have been experiencing dental pain and discomfort and for those who have had to postpone routine treatment required to maintain their oral health.
We have been working hard over recent weeks to develop new protocols and systems to ensure we are ‘COVID SECURE’ for when you return to see us at the practice. We are currently waiting for some final clarification from our regulators which we hope to have next week. Certain aspects of your visit to us at the practice will be different – all changes are being made with the aim of keeping you safe by maintaining social distancing, minimising contact and limiting travel, whilst still providing you with a pleasant and comfortable treatment experience. We’ve put together a short film to show you what to expect when you next attend the practice and you can view this on our social media shortly.
We will initally prioritise emergency cases, those who have developed dental problems during this period of closure. If you have informed us of a dental problem then rest assured you are already on the priority list. If you have not yet done so then please let us know if you believe you need to be included in the priority list. We are aiming to deal with all urgent cases within our first two weeks of opening so that everyone else can start coming back for normal appointments from our third week onwards although we may need to change the timings.
We would like to thank all of our patients for their patience and understanding over the last 10 weeks. We have received many kind and upliftling messages of support and we appreciate them all very much. We wish you and your loved ones ongoing health and well being and we are very much looking forward to seeing you again soon.
With very best wishes
Zoe and the team at Diana Dental
