Welcome To Kayr Dental

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

As we are all aware, life has been dramatically altered as a result of Covid 19. Due to the impossibility of social distancing between the dental team and patients and the nature of the work we do dentistry as we knew it ceased on 23rd March with all NHS practices closing. Urgent Care Dental Centres (UDCC) were created to treat people with the more severe dental issues. Over the past few months we have been working closely with the Public Dental Service, triaging phone calls and giving advice to patients and prescribing antibiotics as required to help our patients and assist in keeping them safe by minimising contact with others during Lockdown. We have been assisting in the UDCCs and referring patients where appropriate.

The First Minister’s announcement advising us of Scotland’s move towards Phase 2 involves allowing Dental Practices to reopen. This Phase only allows us to carry out minimal emergency treatment in our practice. Patient and staff safety and well being is of paramount importance to us which requires social distancing where possible and additional appropriate PPE. As a result of this, full dental services will take much longer to return to normal. Some of the more complex emergency treatment which create aerosols may be provided at the UDCCs.

We have carried out various alterations and changes in the practice to make your experience as safe as possible.

What this means is that the most basic treatment like check-ups and scalings will not be possible until Phase 3 is announced. Regular treatment such as fillings and more cosmetic treatment will not be possible until the Scottish Government announces Phase 4 of the reopening plans.

We fully appreciate how frustrating and upsetting this is for our patients and thank you for your understanding and patience during these unprecedented times. We will be open for emergency treatment on Monday 29th June when we have carried out all the necessary alterations. All pre booked appointments for routine treatments have been cancelled until further notice.

Scottish dentistry has always been very strictly governed in relation to cross infection and we already carry out some of the most advanced processes to ensure your safety which is central to everything.

Yours sincerely,

Kirsteen.
