An update on NHS dental services at our practice

As you will know, the Prime Minister has confirmed that public restrictions has been significantly eased on 19th July.

Under the Government’s guidance “Health and care settings will continue to maintain appropriate infection prevention and control processes as necessary and this will be continually reviewed. Guidance will be updated based on the latest clinical evidence this summer.”

In line with the Government’s guidance, England’s Chief Dental Of ficer Sara Hurley has informed us that the infection prevention control measures in dentistry should continue to be followed until further notice. These are important measures from Public Health England aimed at limiting the spread of the virus in dental settings. We’re also continuing to follow NHS dentistry’s standard operating procedure which helps us make this guidance work.

This means three things for patients:

  1. If you need to come into the surgery for an appointment, please remember that social distancing remains in place in the dental practice and to wear a face covering upon entering the building.
  2. We will continue to have restrictions on leaving time between patients to ventilate rooms if we perform an aerosol generating procedure. An aerosol generating procedure (AGP) is a medical procedure that can result in the release of airborne particles (aerosols) from the respiratory tract when treating someone who is suspected or known to be suffering from an infectious agent transmitted wholly or partly by the airborne or droplet route. In dentistry, for example this means the use of something like a high speed drill. This impacts how many patients we can fit into a working day.
  3. We are also following the Chief Dental Officer’s advice that we should prioritise patients for treatment based on urgency and priority groups, such as those more at risk of dental disease or children.

Queensbury Dental Surgery is working extremely hard to provide care to our patients within the restrictions and guidance to ensure it’s safe to visit the dentist.

We hope that this helps clarify why these measures are in place for every NHS dental practice.

Please do give us a call if you think you need to see us, we’re open for patients.

Great service and always on time. Me and my family go for regular check ups here and last year I invested in the boutique teeth whitening which has been great! Made such a difference, and I still continue to buy the syringes to keep them white.

The latest improvements they've made in the surgery are impressive. My concern of venturing out during the pandemic was soon put to rest with the sterile yet welcoming environment that the staff have created. I was pleased to see that they are taking safety and social distancing seriously and managing patients in the waiting area with care. I was very pleased with the results of the hygienist and dental check up. Keep up the good work.

I've been coming to the Queensbury Dental Surgery since 2015. Ive always found the staff courteous and polite. They are especially good with children which is reassuring as a parent. When my son broke one of his front adult teeth Dental Queensbury Surgery were able to fix the tooth and offer comprehensive advice on my son's treatment going further.

As time has passed I've found appointments easier to obtain as their staff has increased.

I recently visited the hygienist and had a deep clean - all the steps in my procedure were explained to be me clearly.

From my personal experience I would highly recommend them.

In my opinion it is one of the best dental surgeries. I have always been after well, even and specially during the pandemic. Reception is excellent, treatment thorough and well managed. Recently I had a filling and also a crown fitted meticulously. The hygienist and therapist does and an excellent job. Would highly recommend this surgery. Thank you all friendly staff.
