is the practice open during this lockdown time?

We are indeed open and are regarded as an essential service! As much as we would like to cater to your every need, we also want to abide by the laws that the government have put in place to keep all of us safe in this time. We will therefore be open only for emergencies. However, we cannot wait to welcome you back with open arms and bright smiles once everything is back to normal!

what is regarded as an emergency?

According to the chair of committee of Dental Deans, a dental emergency includes oro-facial trauma, sepsis (an abscess or abnormal swelling), prolonged bleeding as well as severe and/or persistent pain that cannot be managed with pain medication.

who can accompany me to the practice to keep conversation with the dentist while working on my teeth?

We are so thankful for your thoughtfulness by bringing your family or friends with you to your dental appointment for our sake, but unfortunately in this lockdown period we ask that you come alone. If your child needs to come, they can be accompanied by one adult. We do however look forward to seeing the whole family again after this period!

what can I do at home to take care of my teeth during this time?

We know that you love brushing, flossing and rinsing so we will just remind you again for in case you have forgotten.  Remember to not only Netflix and snack but also brush before bedtime as well as in the morning after breakfast. Floss after movie snacking every night and finish it off by rinsing. Try to decrease your sugar intake and rather replace it with some yummy veggies and fruit.

what should I do if something happens to my teeth or mouth but I am unsure whether it is an emergency or not?

You are ALWAYS welcome to pop us a message, email or give us a call if you are unsure about anything! We will assist in any way possible to make sure that your oral health is in tip top shape.

For any further questions, please feel free to contact us, we would love to hear from you and assist you however possible.
