Update 30th May 2022
**WE ARE OPEN FOR ALL EMERGENCY AND ROUTINE DENTAL CARE**
Please note that we remain open for all your dental care needs and will update our guidance in line with any changes from the Scottish Government and our Chief Dental Officer.
Please note that as we are a healthcare setting, we would ask that you wear a face covering to your appointment unless you are medically exempt or under 12.
We have updated our COVID 19 screening questions in line with the most recent guidance and these are updated in our reminder email sent prior to attending your appointment. These will also continue to be asked when you arrive at the practice. Please be patient with our team as they ask these questions, it is for your safety and ours.
If you have a dental concern or emergency, please contact the practice in the usual way. We may need set up a triage call to determine the best way to deal with your dental problem and if so one of our dentists will speak to you prior to booking an appointment.
We are able to see all patients for routine dental examinations and have been contacting patients over the last 6 months to book appointments. If you have not heard from us, please do get in touch to arrange an appointment. Unfortunately, due to the restrictions in place, our online booking system is not up and running just now. Our hygienist appointments are incredibly popular so please contact the Front Desk Team if you wish to book a visit with one of hygienists.
The safety of our patients and our team has always been our highest priority. Dentistry is one of the most strictly governed professions in the country and outside of a medical theatre has one of the highest standards of Infection Control across any profession. Keeping our patients and ourselves safe is something we do to a very high standard every day; this is not new to us. We are here to keep you safe.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions via email or phone. Follow us on social media for the latest information and updates.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support and understanding.
With best wishes
Stuart and The Duddingston Dental Practice Team
