Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we are hoping to re-open The Gallery Dental Group Practices mid to late June for appointments. The announcement was publicised on the news to the public without giving dental practices any prior notice to fully prepare and we are still waiting for confirmed guidelines so do please bear with us.
We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the practice unless you have an appointment. The reception teams are available to take calls from immediate effect and we would ask if you do have an emergency to email the practices initially with the subject heading “I have a dental concern” with a brief message of the problem/symptoms. We will be able to add you to the priority list and will contact you in due course.
At The Gallery Dental Group the most important thing is patient safety and comfort, and that is why we have spent the time of closure upgrading the practices, training the team and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.
The practices, as you are aware are always a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all appointments and where treatment is prescribed you will notice different PPE worn by the clinicians. We have also redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.
We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Assuring you of our best attention at all times.
The Gallery Dental Group Team
