Dear Patients and Friends,
I can’t believe it is more than two months since lockdown began, the days and weeks have gone in a blur and at a snail’s pace all at the same time. It has been an interesting and not always comfortable journey; proximity in a way we have never known before, uncertainties in every aspect of our lives, our jobs, our health and our finances and I think it has tested all of us.
It is with no small relief (especially from my family… ‘give it up mum, we are not the Waltons!!lol) that although there are no fixed dates yet, there is finally a roadmap for reopening dentistry. The team will keep you up to date with the timeline for this roadmap via all our usual channels.. e-mail, facebook, Instagram and website. During the last 11 weeks when we couldn’t see you for routine care, we have spent the time upgrading our practice, our systems our processes and our knowledge. We have sourced enhanced PPE (gowns and masks aren’t just for haloween!) and developed measures to keep you and our team even safer. With additional time on their hands, some of our team have also learned new skills unrelated to dentistry which I’m keen to share.
I have really missed the buzz of our busy friendly welcoming practice and look forward to the return of this. In the meantime, for everyone’s benefit, it will be a slow steady start (like switching on a dimmer light) so please bear with us as we accommodate our new systems.
I’m really looking forward to seeing you again, to having our full team back together and to getting away from the fridge!!
