Recently the Chief Dental Officer has confirmed that the extra Covid measures will remain in place for dental practices until further notice We have taken all the necessary protective measures to protect both, your health and the health of our employees in the best possible way.
However, please note the following information for your and our safety. The COVID-19 virus can have different effects on everyone. Most infected people develop mild to moderate symptoms and get well without hospitalisation.
We would like you not to visit our practice if you have one of the following symptoms:
Most common symptoms: fever dry, cough, fatigue, loss of smell or taste
Less common symptoms: body aches, sore throat, diarrhoea, conjunctivitis or headache
We would like you to call 111 and /or your doctor immediately if you have shown some of the severe symptoms:
✔ Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
✔ Pain or feeling of pressure in the chest area
✔ Loss of ability to speak or move
If you have severe symptoms, contact a doctor immediately. In any case, call the doctor’s office or medical facility before visiting them. On average, 4-6 days pass from infection with the virus until symptoms appear in one person. However, it can also take up to 14 days.
We would like you not to visit our practice if you have been:
✔ in contact with a confirmed coronavirus case or
✔ in an area or hotspot where the new coronavirus has spread in the past two weeks
The spread of the new type of Covid–19 is currently declining in the UK, but we still have to be alert. People who are infected with the virus can infect their fellow human beings through sneezing, coughing and possibly through physical contact (handshake).
If you have cold symptoms and have either been in an affected area for the past 14 days or have had contact with (possibly) an infected person, it is necessary to clarify whether you have Covid-19. Again you can call 111 or us from home and find out more.
If you find out that someone who has been in contact with the corona virus within the past 14 days has infected you, please report it immediately to the relevant authorities – regardless of the symptoms or the telephone number 111. With your cooperation, you can help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
At this point, we ask for your understanding of the necessary protective measures we have put in place and assure you the quality of care will remain unchanged.
Thank you for your understanding,
Team at Kew Road Dental
