COVID-19 Policy

Enhanced safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19

Beech House Dental is now open and we have extended our opening hours in order to accommodate as many patients as possible following our enforced closure due to COVID-19.

New restrictions will mean that our previous operating capacity will be greatly reduced but we will do our utmost to ensure that patients in need of urgent treatment are given priority and we will also take into account the needs of vulnerable patients.

All patients will receive a text message, email or telephone call the day before an appointment to make sure that you are fit and well and showing no symptoms of coronavirus. If you or anyone in your household has signs of being unwell then please advise us immediately so that we can reschedule your appointment. For information on the symptoms of coronavirus please see NHS Coronavirus

Our dentists and nurses are now required to wear enhanced PPE for many patient treatments. This is in order to keep themselves and our patients safe. The demand for and cost of PPE worldwide has risen enormously during the COVID-19 pandemic and we have taken the decision to add a £40 surcharge to some treatments as a contribution towards the very high cost of this PPE. This will be regularly reviewed and reduced as and when the cost of PPE falls. If you would like more information on the necessity for enhanced PPE at the moment and the reason for this surcharge, please ask your dentist who will be very happy to explain in more detail.

We thank you for your continued patience during this time.
