Latest Patient Information

COVID-19 outbreak
To all our valued patient

I sincerely hope at this unprecedented time that you and your families are healthy and safe.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest guidelines from the Chief Dental Officer and the Government guidelines on social distancing.

Therefore, effective from tomorrow, we will be postponing and rearranging all non-emergency dentistry.

This is a not a decision ‘we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families.

The reasoning for this is primarily to reduce transmission and to reduce use of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is required by our hospitals at this crucial time.

Please note we have been advised that only serious dental emergencies are to be seen and this includes facial swelling, pain not controlled by pain relief, continuous bleeding and trauma.

A dental emergency is classed as:

· Severe pain for over 48 hours

· Facial Swelling

· Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding If you have any of the above symptoms, please email us on Info@Start-Smiling.Co.Uk where a member of our team can provide advice or if necessary, arrange an emergency appointment.

** PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE AT THE PRACTICE UNANNOUNCED AS WE WILL NOT BE OPEN **

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean that treatment timelines are extended. In almost all instances delaying any elective dentistry will be inconsequential and we will be able to catch-up with implant work, cosmetic treatment, tooth straightening, gum health and restorative dentistry when it is safe to do so. If you are at all concerned about any treatment that you may be in the middle of then. Please do not hesitate to contact the team via email.

If your appointment needs to be postponed, then one of the team will be in touch very shortly. We are doing our best in a difficult situation and appreciate your understanding at this challenging time.

Video consultations will be available at request and please rest-assured that we will still be accessible via email for any support or advice. Please email or message us and a member of the Start Smiling team will be in touch as soon as possible.

We will review the situation over the next weeks/months and let you know as the advice changes.

A huge heartfelt thank you to all our patients and to the Start Smiling Team for standing-up and supporting each other as a community during these uncertain times.

Stay safe and we hope to see you all soon.

Regards- Start Smiling Dental Practice
