(Phase 3 / COVID-19 Update)
Please read the full message.
The Scottish Government announced further lockdown recently including the re-introduction of “routine” dentistry such as dental check-ups. However, AGPs (aerosol generating procedures) are unfortunately still prohibited.
During a check-up, the dentist requires the use of air and water devices (the “3 in 1″ device”) and this is classified as an AGP, as is the dental drill to treat a cavity and ultrasonic scalers to clean teeth. This in effect means that dentistry cannot be carried out.
Regrettably, this means that we will not be able to arrange dental check-ups or carry out any routine dentistry at the present time.
However, if you have a dental emergency such as pain, bleeding or swelling, or have any concerns with the soft tissues in the mouth or gums then we are able to examine/treat these situations.
Please note, appointments are still limited and strictly by appointment only.
We appreciate your continued patience and support.
