Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

Following Government guidelines, the surgery has now reopened. We are initially prioritising those with the most urgent dental needs, with a view to resume routine dental care as soon as we can.

We are seeing patients by appointment only, please continue to call us for advice and support.

 

Although our practice has reopened please note it will not be business as usual. The treatments you are offered may be different to those you received before, depending on staff and personal protection equipment ( PPE ) available. It will take some time before services return to what you previously experienced as normal. Please be patient with us while we work towards resuming normal dental services in a safe environment.

 

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

 

  • Our practice will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment
  •  
  • We have hand sanitiser that we will ask you to use when you enter the practice.
  •  
  • We no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult  to clean and disinfect
  •  
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

 

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

 

How you can help:

  • Please do not arrive without an appointment
  •  
  • Please do not arrive early to the practice. Once you have arrived, please call the practice by phone      on 01992 462 043 and check in with reception. You should then wait outside the practice until called in by a nurse.
  •  
  • Please limit the number of things you bring with you to your appointment. ONLY bring  necessary items.
  •  
  • Please bring your own pen to sign any consent forms
  •  
  • We may ask you to complete your medical history form at home and bring it in at your appointment. Please ensure all parts are completed and all medications are recorded on this form
  •  
  • With the exception of children and patients with carers, patients should come alone
  •  
  • Only one consenting adult will be able to escort a child.
  •  
  • A face covering must be worn by anyone escorting a child or vulnerable adult into the building. This cannot be provided by the practice due to PPE shortages. All our PPE will be needed to treat our patients and protect staff and patients.
  •  
  • A distance of at least 2 metres must be observed if another patient is present in the dental practice
  •  
  • Payment should be made by card where possible and we will sometimes request this over the phone. If cash payment is to be made, please make sure you bring the cash in a plastic bag. Staff will not shake your hand
  •  
  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking, you should contact the practice by phone for advise

 

The welfare of our staff and patients is extremely important to us moving into this next stage in providing your dental care.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back

Facial Rejuvenation & Peel Treatments

As our skin ages and gets more exposed to sunlight, pollution, and stress we may start to see unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Facial Rejuvenation treatments target these signs of ageing with a non surgical approach. The overall effects can be amazing so get ready for younger-looking skin.

Our Aesthetic Practitioners are fully qualified dentists who have undertaken additional training to perform non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Our treatments are carried out using only the best quality materials and equipment. Whether you already have or are considering wrinkle reduction treatment in our clinic, we will welcome you for a consultation giving personalized advice and care.

 

Muscle relaxing drugs

Products like Botox® can be used to treat dynamic wrinkles of the face (forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet). Botox can also be used as a preventative measure, reducing the strain of the muscles in areas prone to wrinkles.

Is it safe?

The Botox procedure is one of the safest available for the reduction or softening of wrinkles. Botox is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes (Crow’s Feet). Botox can also be used to treat lines around the mouth and those on the neck.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers (Juvéderm®) consists of hyaluronic acid which is used to lift and firm up your skin by replacing the natural collagen lost as you age. The most commonly affected areas are nose-to-mouth lines and smokers' lines around the lips. Dermal fillers will also improve the contours of your lips and cheek bones, adding volume and shape.

The gel is administered into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, safe and gentle to your skin.

Chemical Facial Peels

What is a chemical peel? A simple 30-45 minute treatment using substances that which exfoliate the skin at a medium- deep level and stimulate the dermal skin structure resulting in rapid cell renewal to provide a more youthful, smoother skin texture and tone and rejuvenated appearance. 2 types of peel are now available.

Glycolic acid peel

A potent AHA derived from sugar cane and fruit acid- application can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne and light pigmentation. Skin is more radiant with a fresher more youthful appearance.

TCA peels

A non-toxic acid is applied to provide a deeper peel over a course of 4 treatments. It is used in the treatment of deeper lines and wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, sun spots and melasma. The effects of such peel will be longer than that of a lighter peel. It needs to be provided as a course of peel treatments over 2-4 months.
