What will your dental appointment be like?

  • If you call to make an appointment, you will be asked some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment.
  • You will probably be asked to use hand sanitiser or to wash your hands when you arrive (and again before you leave)
  • You will also find that waiting rooms might look a little different with two metre markers in place.
  • You will also notice that the dental team may be wearing different protective equipment to what you are used to seeing
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. You will initially wait outside the building and we will call you in.
  • The toilet facilities can only be used upon request.

How you can help:

  • With the exception of children and persons in need, patients should come alone
  • A distance of at least two metres must be observed if another patient is present in the dental practice
  • Staff will not shake your hand
  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking, you should contact the practice by phone
  • Please do not arrive early to the practice. If necessary, you should wait outside the practice.
  • Please do not arrive without an appointment
  • Patients should attend wearing a mask if possible or be prepared to wear one
