At Victoria Road Dental Care the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff has always been our top priority.
The latest guidness from the Cheif Dental Officer of England remains unchanged and we are not permitted to offer face to face appointments.
We are endeavouring to contact each and every one of you for wellness checks and answer any concerns or questions you may have.
As some of you already know , we are contactable during our normal working hours for advice or reassurance, as always.
Behind the scenes, we have done extensive research into the mechanisms of action of COVID-19 and have implemented additional measures alongside our stringent cross infection standards to ensure the practice continues to be safe for patients, staff and clinicians.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Victoria Road Dental Care as soon as we are permitted.
Please see below some help with toothache over this period.
As you will no doubt know, under Government regulations from NHS England, we are not allowed to carry out routine dentistry for the time being.
Please don’t worry. Our primary focus is to support you during this time.
We are not cancelling any treatments: just postponing them until we are permitted to go back to full operation.
We are rebooking appointments in a few months time and we will contact you in due course to rearrange these appointments.
Please be reassured that we will remain available for you for emergencies, although there will be a slightly different protocol to follow.
We will advice you all to please follow the government guidelines about social distancing and take extra care to distance yourselves in public places such as supermarkets, if you must go out.
We have compiled some recommendations to follow with some helpful hints to benefit your oral health.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
Tooth and Mouth Care
Please follow all the advice that your dentist has previously discussed with you.
It is most important to brush your teeth and to floss and / or use Interdental brushes at least once per day.
Always brush & floss/Interdental at the end of each day.
Use fluoride mouthwash at different times of the day to brushing.
Please take care with your choice of food. It may be wise to avoid hard nuts/muesli at this time to minimize the risk of breaking a tooth.
Please monitor sugar intake of children as well. Sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks are fine in small amounts, perhaps once or twice a week, as long as the teeth are cleaned thoroughly.
