Filled in the online form received by text the day before my appointment so when I arrived 5 minutes early there was no... delay in being allowed into the practice. Hand gel was given while a quick temperature check was carried out. Following this procedure I was shown to the separate waiting room for my hygienist appointment.A few minutes spent waiting while the room was finished being prepped. I noted that there was not the usual number of patients waiting to be taken due to the controlled numbers attending and the strict cleaning required between patients being treated.The appointment itself was carried out with the normal friendly but professional care taken to perform the actual hygienist work.A brief update on the condition of my teeth and gums with a suggestion of using different sizes of brush to improve the ongoing hygiene and I was escorted back to reception while the computer notes were updated.During my brief wait I was able to observe the procedure used to process the patients and was pleased to observe the personal space was carried out at all times and the locked front door to control both entry and exit was wiped down on every occasion.I was soon called forward to make arrangements for my next appointment and offered a print out or a text to confirm the details.I had reservations about attending for such a close personal contact appointment during the pandemic lockdown but was pleased and reassured with all the procedures in place that were carried out in a friendly relaxed but professional atmosphere.I would have no hesitation in recommending Torwood Dental Practice for anyone looking for the best dental care.read more
