*Dental appointments are still allowed under current Welsh lockdown rules, so please attend as normal if you are comfortable. If you would prefer to re-arrange your appointment, please do not hesitate to call us and we will arrange your appointment for a suitable date and time*
Over the past few months, we have been seeing patients again for face-to-face consultations for emergency treatment, as well as starting to see patients for more routine care.
As we are sure our patients will understand, we are having to take a cautious approach to treatment. Check-ups for our Denplan, private and high-need NHS patients are underway, although you will notice that we are not able to use the air-spray or clean your teeth in the usual way so that we avoid the production of ‘aerosol’. This keeps us and our patients safe, so we hope you don’t mind bearing with us whilst we implement these small changes. Sue, our dental hygienist, is also back up and running as well! She has appointments every Tuesday for those who would like to see her.
Many of our local patients will currently be under tighter restrictions in terms of moving between council areas. Dental appointments are one of the exemptions to these restrictions, so if you live in Cardiff, Rhondda Cynon Taf, The Vale of Glamorgan or further afield, you are allowed to travel to us in Bridgend for treatment. Please plan your journey and avoid visiting other places, such as the shops or petrol station in the Bridgend area when you travel to see us, but we’ll be waiting with a smile behind our masks when you get here!
Please take a look at the links below which outline some of the changes we’ve made but if you’re unsure about anything, just give us a call and we can discuss any concerns you may have.
Please don’t feel pressured to attend if you are not yet comfortable to do so. We are here and happy to see those patients who would like their routine check-ups and cleans, but we are very aware that the current situation may mean that you prefer not to attend at the moment. Just remember that we’re here when you are ready and if you have any dental problem at all, we are happy to see you or provide telephone or video advice if you would prefer.
Appointments must be arranged by telephone, so please do not attend the clinic without an appointment.
We would like to thank all our patients for your ongoing support and understanding and send out our love and best wishes to you all.
