The team at Thorpe Lea Dental is delighted to announce that we have successfully passed the British Dental Association’s strict Good Practice assessment for returning to work during the Covid-19 pandemic.Our Thorpe Road dental practice had to submit evidence for six questions posed by the BDA to ensure all the necessary arrangements are in place to treat patients in line with government social distancing and infection control measures.We were asked about:
Preparing the site
Reducing the risks for staff and patients
Communicating and welcoming patients back
The process for pre-appt triage
Infection control procedures
Patient considerations (the patient journey)
Clinical considerations, management of the clinical surgery
We have received our certificate and have started welcoming our patients back for face-to-face care on Tuesday June 9.
"It’s clear to see that all the precautionary COVID compliance safety procedures are in place"
We were also really pleased to receive a fantastic testimonial from one of our patients, who visited us recently for emergency dental care.“Had an emergency treatment requirement last thing Monday 8th June 2020. I was contacted promptly the following morning at 8 am offering a slot that same day later in the afternoon! The practice has taken sensible precautionary measures in respect of PPE, the protection of both clients and staff. The online disclosure consent form process is very straight forward. I have to say I was reassured during my visit, it’s clear to see that all the precautionary COVID compliance safety procedures are in place. Thank you for the swift professional service received,” he said.The treatments offered may be different to those you received before, depending on the staff and equipment we have available. It will take some time before our services will return to what you previously experienced, so please bear with us.More about our air purifier
