Coronavirus / Covid-19 Update – 25th March 2020
The safety of our patients is our paramount concern. Covid-19 is giving all of us unprecedented challenges and in the light of the up to date advice from both NHS Scotland and the British Dental Association we have taken the steps to postpone all routine treatment and close the practice.
As you can understand this decision has not been taken lightly.
We are still available for dental emergency advice and you can contact us on 0131 226 3725 or email us at [email protected] . When this telephone number is answered, you will be given the mobile number for the duty dentist and the email address is accessed regularly throughout the day. The Scottish Government and Chief Dental Officer have issued strict protocols to follow for dental emergencies. During normal office hours you should call the practice on the number above, your details will be taken and one of the dentists will call you back. As we use the latest Dental Records software, we have full access to your Dental Record from home. After 6pm, when the practice is completely closed you should contact NHS 24 by dialling 111 and they should be able to give you appropriate advice.
In addition, it is recognised that any one of us may be affected by the virus at some point and we have been grouped into “buddy practices”, so that if no dentist is available in Edinburgh Dental Studio, a dentist from one of the other practices should be able to take your call.
We will be maintaining close contact with patients who are mid treatment, and contacting everyone who has had an appointment postponed. We will be gearing up to resume practice just as soon as the emergency passes and we are told it is safe to resume normal practice.
We encourage you to follow the guidelines set out by the government to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and stay at home!
Stay safe – and we look forward to welcoming you back to the practice very soon.
As the situation changes over the coming days and weeks, we will keep you updated and informed here with new information as we have it.
These are difficult times for all of us, but we know that you will understand our decision.
