Monday 22nd June:
The Scottish Government updated their advice for various areas of society on Thursday 18th June. This included the announcement that dental practices can re-open , as Phase 2 commences .
We have been anticipating this positive development and have been making adjustments to ensure we are ready to re-open and our clinic is a Covid safe environment .
However the announcement did not give the public any more detail and the re-opening of dental practices will not allow us to provide the same array of services, for the next few weeks, that were available before the Covid-19 outbreak. .
When we re-open it will involve only being able to use one of our 3 surgeries at any one time and a guideline to restrict the number of patients who can use the practice on any given day.
The reception team will begin to contact all patients who have reported an urgent emergency since March 24th and schedule them an appointment over the next couple of weeks . Our aim is to help everyone who has phoned with a dental issue , but we will be working with limited capacity initially. So please be patient as we work through this re-opening phase.
When we schedule an appointment for you we will send an email linking to information we will require before your visit. This will involve updating your Medical History on a new digital form on our website and a Covid-19 Screening questionnaire.
We have a new infographic to share to show new details about your Patient Journey in The Park Practice .
The health and wellbeing of our patients and our dental team remains the utmost priority. These last months have been challenging for everyone but we are confident that your visit will be in a very safe environment and you will still experience the high dental care standards that we have prided ourselves on for the last 20 years.
Call our team on 0141- 334 1211 if you have developed a problem and our dental team will discuss the best approach and if it is an urgent issue we will schedule a suitable time to provide emergency treatment .
For routine examinations and treatments that have been postponed we are planning to be able to offer you an appointment later in July/August.
All patients requiring hygiene and gum health appointments the plan is to be scheduling appointments in late July .
We will also be updating relevant info on our Facebook page and our Twitter account : @GlasgowDentist
