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.
DENTAL SERVICES REMAIN OPEN DURING NATIONAL LOCKDOWN
We are committed to protecting our staff and patients, and have adapted our existing practices to make it as Covid secure as possible. There has been lots to do, from social distancing measures, to obtaining enhanced PPE, and adapting your patient journey experience.
We’ve now re-opened our practices, giving priority to patients with dental emergencies such as pain, and swelling first, and are now pleased to offer more routine treatments and services.
We are 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.
For advice and treatment outside of our normal working hours please phone The Lancashire Dental Helpline on 0300 1234 080.
