ACCEPTING NHS PATIENTS

Vicars Cross Dental Practice

Practice Update:

Over the past couple of days, we have received further guidance as to what dental procedures we are able to safely carry out during the COVID-19 pandemic. The government have set out five different risk levels for the pandemic 1-5 (low-high). As of today, we are currently at level 3. The treatments we are able to carry out safely in the practice will change with the risk level. The treatments are limited at level 3.

 

Please do not contact the practice for routine appointments during this period. 

 

Our first few weeks are going to be at a slow start while we ensure that the new protocols are safely and effectively executed. One of the biggest obstacles in guidance is that surgeries have to be left empty for 60 minutes after using the high-speed handpiece or other aerosol generated equipment including the ultrasonic scalers used by the hygienist. This will have an impact on the number of patients we will be able to see daily but this is likely to change once further guidance is given to us. We will be able to use the slow-speed handpiece ONLY in specific circumstances. We can use the 3in1 syringe (washes and dries teeth) with restrictions in place.

 

At risk level 3, we are hoping to be able to return the following treatments:
• Permanent fillings
• Permanent cementation of crowns and bridges
• Removal of roots
• Straightforward implant placements
• Root fillings
• Ultrasonic scaling (cleaning with hygienist)

 

We are able to carry out the following procedures as of now:

• Assessments
• X-rays
• Temporary re-cementation of crowns
• Fabrication or repair of removable dentures
• Simple dental extractions; If a tooth breaks, it is likely that we will need to leave the roots in place until we are a lower level of risk – if urgent, we will look to refer to one of the dental hubs. We will of course asses this risk very carefully prior to treatment commencing.
• Tightening of loose dental implants; If possible, without using a high-speed handpiece (drill)
• Temporary fillings
• Draining of a swelling or abscess
• Provision of antibiotics

 

Treatment will only be offered after careful assessment.

 

This is a huge change for everyone involved with a whole new way of providing your care. Please be reassured that every action we take is for both you and our teams’ safety. Please continue to be patient with us whilst we navigate all of our new protocols and procedures. Keep checking this page and our social media for regular updates.

Testimonial

I can't think of anything you could do to improve the service you provide. The premises are pleasant, the treatment is excellent and the staff are marvellous. My recent visit was during the coronavirus lockdown and they handled my visit with aplomb.

Family friendly practice. Care taken at reception with regards to health prior to appointment in view of Coronavirus. Staff always friendly and helpful. Mindful and reassuring when a person is nervous.

Efficient and Effective. 

I experienced a very tailored check-up, follow-up treatment and advice on next steps and how to maintain dental health. All was clear and reassuring - thank you. Appointments were made at times to suit my work patterns. I was also slotted into a spare hygienist appointment on the day which was helpful.

Very accommodating and helpful when making appointments. Staff all polite and friendly. I am genuinely cared for and have everything explained to me so I understand what is happening. I can trust that I will be treated well, both practically and emotionally.

I have been absolutely delighted with my experience of Invisalign having been unhappy with my teeth for many years! I finally contacted Vicars Cross to enquire about treatment which would suit my lifestyle (and give quick results before my upcoming wedding) Jason has been helpful, professional and informative at every stage of treatment which has lasted around 10 months all together. I could not be more happy with how my teeth look and would highly recommend anyone considering Invisalign to have a consultation.

Recently had an implant which went very smoothly with no problems whatsoever. Everyone behaved in a very professional manner and I was totally relaxed throughout the procedure.

Having struggled for years with dental care it is a huge relief to know that Sedation is available and so effective. I would hugely recommend your service.

I have crooked teeth all my adult life and now I can finally smile without feeling self-conscious about my teeth. Thank you.

The recent root canal treatment was extremely meticulous, the dentist had an excellent chairside manner. It’s a pleasure to be the recipient of good team work.

The sedation I received was in my case fantastic for relaxing, I was thoroughly informed on everything, we were given all the information required. I felt very confident in the care I received.

Loved teeth whitening! 8 Shades lighter and I’m so happy. I would recommend.

Both the hygienist and the dental assistant provided excellent care during my appointment. Kind, empathetic and gentle. Explained the process throughout the appointment, very professional. Thank you for your excellent care.
