The Scottish Government has announced the return of routine NHS treatment to dental practices as of 1st November 2020. This is really positive news and a step in the right direction, however we are not back to business as usual just yet.
Due to the capacity restrictions in place to protect patients and staff from the transmission of Covid-19, your dentist is only able to see a lower number of patients each day.
We politely ask that patients do not contact the practice to book routine NHS check-ups just yet. We know you are waiting and we will contact you as soon as we can.
Your dentist will prioritise patients according to their knowledge of the particular clinical situation. Those experiencing pain will continue to be our priority and should contact us for further advice and care where required.
We understand that this has been and continues to be a difficult time for you and your family and we share your frustration. We will continue to share updates as they become available to us.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this time.
