Update following UK Coronavirus lockdown

Monday, March 23, 2020



Update on Coronavirus.

As you will have heard via the news, Scotland will, in effect, be in 'lockdown'.

The practice doors will be closed and we would ask you to phone the practice in advance if you have a severe dental emergency.
You will then be asked specific questions to determine whether you have a dental emergency that can be treated in the current circumstances.
Please bear with us so we can help you, protect you and our staff.


Keep safe and heed the advice we have been given.






Update 18 March for all Scottish Dental Practices

Wednesday, March 18, 2020



Updated guidance for all Scottish dental practices:
Scottish government has advised all dental practices to reduce any procedure which could increase the possibility of spreading Coronavirus.
Basically this means avoiding the production of any aerosol during a treatment.
This will limit what treatments we are able to do which is why we will be asking you specific questions when you phone. Please bear with us so we can help you, protect you and our staff.




Coronavirus Update

Sunday, March 15, 2020



Coronavirus Update

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new and emerging infectious disease threat. There is still much uncertainty around its clinical presentation but the spectrum of disease may range from mild-to-moderate illness to pneumonia or severe acute respiratory infection.  The approach taken by NHS Scotland is to identify potential cases of COVID-19, isolate them and contain the virus.


If you have any of the symptoms (temperature, cough, shortness of breath) within 14 days of travel to a risk area you should contact your GP or NHS 24 (contact 111) by telephone. You should not attend the dental practice, GP surgery or A&E department.

Up to date information (including risk areas) for the public is available at NHS Inform. Contacts of a confirmed case should also defer their treatment until their local Health Protection Team has advised otherwise. Triaging by the dental reception team in advance of the appointment may be undertaken to prevent individuals with ‘possible’ or ‘confirmed’ COVID-19 arriving for their appointment.

Further information on COVID-19 can be found on NHS Inform or by contacting NHS24 on 111.

Asymptomatic individuals who have travelled from risk areas can be treated as usual, with our dental team following our usual high standards of universal infection control precautions.
