COVID-19 UPDATES

08 June 2020 UPDATE (a message from the Principals):

Dear Patient,

 

We hope that you are keeping well during these unprecedented times.

We hope to open the practice on 18th of June, as you all can imagine we have a very long back log of patients that need to be seen; we will do everything possible to be fair to everyone. We will be prioritizing emergent cases, and the level of emergency will be determined by a screening done with the dentist. Secondly, patients that are halfway through treatment will be prioritized as well.

Additionally, we would like to kindly ask you all, to bear with us, the phone lines have been flooded since the news that dental surgeries will begin to reopen, so rest assured that you will be contacted once we can coordinate an appointment for you.

It will take time to get things back to normal, but we are doing everything we can to make sure that everyone who needs to be seen gets seen. However, we would like you to keep in mind that we will not be seeing the same volume of patients that we were seeing prior to the lockdown, therefore it will take several weeks to be able to see all emergent patients.

As we intend to keep social distancing in mind, inside of the practice, please do not come in to the surgery unless you have an appointment, and have been contacted by phone 24 hours prior to have a COVID-19 screening. Anyone, that does not have an appointment will not be admitted inside the surgery.

Your health and safety are paramount to us, and in keeping this in mind we ask that you bear with our appearance, as all clinicians will be in surgical protective wear, so you may not immediately recognize the dentist and nurses.

We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during transitional times.

 

Kind Regards,

Dr Rosalie and Emilie Szasz

Principals
