COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Update!


COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Update!

In light of the Scottish Government’s statement on 18/03/2020 all dental practices can now only provide a limited service during this Covid-19 pandemic. We can only offer care to patient’s who not NOT have Coronavirus symptoms. ( patients with Covid-19 symptoms will only be treated via NHS24 - appointments will be arranged via local NHS Health board)

Care for non  Covid-19 patients will be restricted to treatments that do not produce an air/ water aerosol. Such an aerosol will easily transfer viruses from one person to another. Banned treatments include fillings, crown/ veneer/ bridge provision, root treatments, scaling and implants. 

Treatment we can provide includes:-

Exams

X-rays

Dentures

Temporary fillings

Simple extractions

Antibiotics for severe swelling, difficulty in swallowing or opening jaws

Re-cementing crowns, bridges and veneers

This situation may change daily. There is anticipation of complete Surgery closures. For updates please check our website regularly. 

Please stay safe and look out for those who will appreciate our help. 

Dr Paul Mitchell.
