Millions of people are prioritising their social life ahead of their oral health. Survey data reveals almost one in five 8 per cent would cancel their dental appointment to pursue a social activity instead.
Covid-19 and Dental Services
We are committed to protecting our staff and patients, and have adapted our existing practices to make it as Covid secure as possible.
We are still screening all patients for symptoms of Covid-19 prior to their visit, and are delighted to introduce our online patient portal, so you can access the forms we would routinely update in the comfort of your own home. This helps us reduce the number of patients in the practice and your time during face to face appointments.
Facemasks are no longer mandatory in communal areas, such as waiting rooms and receptions, but you can opt to wear one if you choose to.
We will continue to protect patients who are extremely clinically vulnerable patients and will allow space in our waiting rooms for this.
If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or feel unwell for any reason, please do inform a member of our team and we can adjust our procedures accordingly to protect our team and other patients.
For advice and treatment outside of our normal working hours please phone The Lancashire Dental Helpline on 0300 1234 010.
