An update for our Envisage patients
The Scottish Government has announced that from the beginning of November, dentists can deliver the full range of care that was available under the NHS prior to lockdown. This news is really welcome for us all, as your dentist can now ‘finish the job’ that has been started by managing urgent care needs.
However, whilst the full range of care CAN now be delivered, there are additional complexities that have come to the fore as a result of the last 8 months.
Firstly, and most importantly, safety for you as a patient and for the dental team needs to be maintained so, social distancing, allowing any mist in the surgery to settle, and the thorough cleaning of surfaces, all takes a significant amount of time. This means that the time when the dental surgery can’t be used between appointments will be longer to support safe practice, resulting in fewer appointments being available in the normal working day.
Secondly, eight months of routine dental care has not been delivered between March and October, resulting in a substantial backlog of care that is required. The delivery of care by your dentist will be prioritized to ensure that the patients with pain or with potential tooth loss are treated first and procedures that are desirable but have a lesser priority in terms of the practice as a whole may need to be delayed until the backlog has been managed. This will take a substantial amount of time with the current restrictions.

We truly appreciate your patience & understanding as we take this next step and look forward to safely welcoming you back to our practice again in the future.
