As you will probably have heard, dental practices can now re-open and we are pleased to be restarting on 11 June.
It won’t be business as usual at first and it will take some time to return to our normal levels of activity. Some treatments may be different to those we were able to offer before depending on staff and equipment available. We appreciate your patience.
We have all endured much over the past few months and are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed our commitment to the safety of our patients and staff has not.
Infection control has always been a top priority for dental practices and you may have seen this during your visits to Cramond House. We follow guidelines from government and professional bodies and are up to date with the new guidance that has been offered in the light of the continuing Coronavirus pandemic to ensure our procedures are current and adhere to recommendations. The shortage and vastly increased cost of appropriate PPE and other equipment has been widely publicised. Unfortunately we will have no option but to pass on some of these costs in our pricing structure. Denplan fees will not be affected.
Initially we will prioritise patients who are experiencing painful symptoms and those whose treatment was postponed when we had to shut down. Please do not contact us yet to arrange routine appointments. We have a register of everyone who is due a recall and will be arranging appointments in due course.
You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We have made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you as well as to reduce the number of people in the building at any one time.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
