19 Jun Post Covid-19 Reopening
Following from the government announcement on 28th may, we are delighted to announce that we will be reopening Bridgeways Dental from Tuesday 9th June 2020.
We have had to cancel all appointments since 18th March, so please do bear with us while we arrange appointments based on urgency and governmental restrictions. Things at the practice have had to change quite a bit to make sure that we keep everyone safe. We will be contacting all patients to make and confirm appointments and to go through with you our new procedures for when you arrive at the practice. To ensure we maintain social distancing as far as possible and to allow time for enhanced cleaning, we will be staggering appointments so there will only be one patient in the practice at any time. If you currently have an appointment booked, please do not attend until we have spoken to you, as it may need to be changed. If you would like to arrange an appointment, please contact us by telephone or email. If we are not initially able to arrange an appointment for you, we will endeavour to give you an idea of when we can see you, and place you onto our waiting list.
Due to restrictions imposed on dentistry we are not able to provide our complete range of services at the moment. We are limiting our appointments to emergencies, and consultations or reviews. We know that we have a lot of patients who are waiting for treatment or hygienist appointments. We will let you know as soon as we are able to resume these and invite you to contact us to rebook your appointments. As the national situation is rapidly changing, it is likely that these necessary alterations to our normal procedures will only need to be temporary.
Things at the practice will be running a little bit differently for a while and we will be taking more time over each patient. To make sure that we can see all patients as promptly as possible we are planning on increasing our capacity by extending our hours and days of operation.
We would like to thank all of our patients for their ongoing patience and understanding in this unprecedented time. Please continue to bear with us while we adjust to our new protocols and procedures. We look forward to seeing you at the practice very soon.
If you would like to discuss your personal needs, or have any questions about the “new normal” then please do get in touch, we will be happy to talk through our new procedures with you.
From Casey and George, and the whole BD Team.
