COVID-19 UPDATE 13th JULY
The Scottish Government announced it will allow dental practices with NHS registered patients to provide ‘routine’ dental care from 13th July 2020.
However, Scottish Government have forbidden the use of Aerosol Generating Peocedures (AGPs) on NHS patients within the practice.
This is any treatment involving air and/or water.
95% of what we do involves aerosols.
The Scottish Government have failed to acknowledge that a check-up requires use of aerosols to enable adequate inspection of your teeth and to plan your treatment properly.
Subsequently, the only effective non-aerosol treatments we can provide on the NHS currently are extractions & patch ups for teeth.
The Scottish Government have so far, not enhanced the financial support to enable us to provide sustainable NHS treatments on reopening.
***Please do not phone to make an appointment for routine exam or treatment at this time as we will be unable to do this.***
However, keep an eye on our website & Facebook page for further updates as we are planning to move forward & be able to offer more procedures over the next few weeks.
