*PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT*
From the 17th of August the Scottish Government has allowed Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGPs), like drilling, in dental practice in Scotland. Government guidance only allows this for emergencies and only for a few procedures per day.
Unfortunately, the NHS has been unable to deliver the required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) necessary for us to do these procedures. We are very disappointed not to have the ability to help our patients more than we already are. As soon as we receive our PPE, we will enhance our care to the level we are allowed to provide.
Once again, we would like to remind our patients that we will do everything in our power to help them. We can still refer patients for AGPs, where necessary. We will communicate when further procedures are possible.
Until then we would still like you to:
- Please phone us if you have any problems. If we can’t see you or perform the treatment you need, we can refer you to an Urgent Dental Care Centre in Forth Valley.
- If you have an appointment booked, we are in the process of re-appointing patients to future dates when we hope to be able to work normally.
- Please be patient. We know many of you have been waiting for the point when we can treat you. We will do our best to see as many of you as we can until we return to normal.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. It is difficult for us not to be able to help all of you as normal.
If you have any problems, queries or doubts; please phone us on 01259 723225.
