COVID-19 UPDATE: National Lockdown 2021

Posted by Morgado-IDC | 4th January 2021 | Team News

Dear Patients,

As during the last period of national restrictions, dental services are to remain open and see patients. The Government guidance on the national lock down says, “The majority of public services will continue and you will be able to leave home to visit them. These include the NHS and medical services like GPs and dentists”.

Remote consultation, triage and risk assessment remain key prior to patient attendance for face to face dental care. Social distancing measures remain in place. And PPE levels as stated for low, medium and high risk assessed patients remain.

In line with the standard operating procedure, within the available capacity, when recommencing deferred courses of treatment, recall and re-assessments practices will need to prioritise groups with the greatest need. Dentistry is an essential medical service. It is a priority and patients are entitled to travel for medical appointments, including dental appointments.

Thank you

IDC Team
