dentistry and Covid-19

In order to help halt the spread of coronavirus….

We have been advised to stop ALL routine dentistry and stop ALL aerosol generating procedures. We have been asked to offer advice and prescriptions over the phone and stop ALL face-to-face urgent care.

If you have a problem there is some advice on our self help page  Some Self Help Advice

If you need us we are offering telephone triage and assessment – our advice line is open 9 – 12 (9-10 Sat & Sun)  –   01777 706367   –   please try and call early, this gives us time to arrange prescriptions for you.

Also you can email us at – advice.retforddentist@outlook.com

or you can message us on Facebook

If you have symptoms of coronavirus…
 
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
 
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
 
you can call us but we will have to refer you to NHS111 for any treatment.
